Besides the good feeling communicated by the friendly staff, I was very impressed with the detailed written report summarizing my visit which I received just prior to departure.Furthermore, there was very little wasted time once I made it to the examination room. Patients REALLY appreciate it when health care providers respect their personal time. One more thing. I received similar outstanding care at the Urgent Care center on Whittier Blvd. this past Tuesday. Dr. Kramer and his staff were terrific and super efficient.

Dr. Malhis pays attention. He hears what I have to say. He does not discount me and say things like "it is your age" "Or you just want narcotics" I have had several Dr.'s tell me that. I left feeling that he gave me all his attention and heard what I had to say. What a role model for other physicians.
May 15, 2017

April 18, 2017
My son wasn't even asked how his injury occurred. and how important it is for him to get back on his feet. So if you want to be in and out and don't need to understand what is wrong with you and how to recover go to this doctor. But the rest of the office staff was awesome and I appreciate the ladies at the front desk for their sympathy and assistance.
April 12, 2017
Great Dr i would recommend
April 10, 2017

April 05, 2017
Dc. Malhis is a very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable doctor.
April 04, 2017
Was told I needed a MRI which I have had in the past. I have had "open" MRI's previously with no charge. Now I was told not only do they not offer "open" MRI's but there's a copay of $120. It seems odd that such an enormous organization as PIH would not offer "open" MRI's to their patients. If these copays start accumulating I will do research on finding another provider.
March 31, 2017
Muy professional
