He explained everything that would happened & put my mind at ease, an amazing surgeon
I had my disk surgery with Dr. Irfan Mallik. From day 1 he knew what I was dealing with. Instead of straight surgery he tried all the option to avoid it. He took all the effort to provide me quick access to all the help I needed. The best part is he remembered how I was walking on the first day and how I easily walking after the surgery. I really appreciate and highly recommend Dr. Irfan Malik.
I cannot fault Mr Malik or recommend him highly enough. He’s changed my life and I’ll be forever grateful.
I had an online consultation with Mr Malik for my daughter's MRI findings of a pituitary microadenoma. He listened to me attentively and was very reassuring. He told me that no surgical intervention is required and she only needs medicines to take care of this. I found him to be very kind and compassionate. Highly recommend Mr Malik as a professional and great human being!
Mr Malik was very honest about my care. He explained everything in detail and allowed me to ask questions making sure that I understand what I about to go through. He came to see me before I was discharged home making sure that I was happy with the service I received.
He is absolutely brilliant in what he does. He got rid of the pain that I had been suffering from for 14 months. It took only about 2 months from our first appointment to the day of surgery.
I was disappointed it felt very rushed
I am 85 years old and have never had any surgery. I was terrified of the thought of an operation but my mobility was deteriorating and my pain was almost unbearable even with strong medication. At the first consultation Mr Malik was very understanding and professional and explained in easy to understand language what my operation would entail. He allayed my concerns and anxiety and gave me confidence. The operation took place within weeks of this consultation. When I came round from surgery the excruciating pain that I had been experiencing for years had gone. It is now 9 weeks since surgery and I have been able to come off my pain medication. I saw Mr Malik last week for a post op consultation and cannot praise him enough. He answered all my questions in easy to understand language again and was very kind and politely me. In my opinion Mr Malik is not only a brilliant surgeon but he has integrity too.
I am very pleased to see Mr Malik. Although I didn't get any treatment I amleased about the explanation given
