His treatment and care from the start has been great. He has shown great interest in my recovery and continues to monitor me post surgery and after consultations with other physicians. He is also very respectful and explanation of procedures are great.
Mr Malik has such a lovely manner, instilling confidence and with a genuine warmth. He took the time to find out about me and not just the ailment and I felt he was genuinely interested. He explained all the options so I could make an informed decision. Due to changing jobs my policy was coming to and end shortly and he pulled out all the stops to find a slot for me to have my procedure, for which I am very grateful.
Great communication skills - took the time to get to know his patient - honestly can't fault him - exactly the kind of consultant you don't mind paying for !
From start to finish Dr Malik was brilliant. Was honest and upfront with me at all times and I felt only had my best interest at heart
Thorough, sympathetic and treated with care and attention
Highly professional and knowledgeable with a friendly, human approach. My knee problem was diagnosed and sorted quickly and efficiently, with a minimal pain and no post-surgery problems, alleviating my problems and allowing me to regain a use of the knee shortly after the arthroscopy.
Definitely would recommend Mr Malik to family and friends. Every visit as been outstanding. Everything explained thoroughly. Feel at ease knowing I can ask any questions. All visits have been stress free which makes a difference.
Very knowledgeable with a calming presence to ease any concerns. A lot of attention to detail was provided. Took the time to thoroughly exhaust the details of all options at each stage with me throughout my experience with Mr Malik. Was always happy to provide an opinion when unsure on the next steps to take as a patient.
My experience of Mr Malik is that he has done a fantastic job on my total right knee replacement. His demeanour was outstanding, comforting and gave me a great deal of confidence through the whole process.
Found him easy to talk to and he explained things as we have gone on
