Dr. Malhis wanted to be a doctor since childhood. He found medicine fascinating and interesting. He decided to specialize in Orthopedic Surgery, because it combined the intellect with the technical skill. Seeing his patients happy with their treatment and surgery outcome gives him gratification of a job well done. Dr. Malhis enjoys walks on the beach and spending time with his family and friends.

Spend time to explain things
June 24, 2019
Great Doctor and spent time explaining the injury and options.
June 24, 2019
Dr Talal (as I call him) is very easy going guy and he'll try to explain the problem to us non-medically train people, not an easy thing for him. But keep in mind, he's there to help you, not hold you hand. He won't tell you what you want to hear, he'll tell you what you need to hear. He won't support a bad decision, but he'll help you make the right decision for you. I his own way, he makes me very comfortable, I'm glad he's there.
June 21, 2019
Dr. Malhis is the best diagnostician I've seen and other PIH doctors feel this way, too. Although he doesn't perform surgery anymore, he knows how to treat your symptoms and isvery caring.

The best
June 19, 2019
Malhis's office is great. We were at CHOC for a little bit, but my daughters like him better. The MA and Xray techs were very nice and professional. Dr. Malhis is great with my teenagers and impressively efficient. The scribe(s)he uses is(are) very focused on their job and present well. The front office staff greet everyone and have repeatedly demonstrate that they work as a team. This is a very well run office, and I have, and will continue, to recommend them.
June 12, 2019
Follow up with the patient to make sure the care agreed on is treated. Options of where you can have services render should be discussed instead of just providing just one choice which might be not that most cost effective.

Dr. Malhis spends enough time with his patients. Everything is done in a timely matter. He is a good Dr. My daughter has seen him twice and my husband once.
April 12, 2019
Dr Malhis is a personable and professional doctor. The scheduling department dropped the ball here by rescheduling my original appointment with a surgeon to an "advisor" that would ultimately need to refer me a surgeon, thereby adding additional time and cost to my recovery process. I realize the folks in scheduling are "admin" and not medical professionals, but this is an area in the process that can definitely use some improvement.
April 10, 2019
Dr.Malhis is a very compassionate doctor and listens to your complaints about pain and seeks a cause.

October 29, 2018
The provider did not give us the impression that he wanted to take care of us. His exam was rushed. He didn't explain much except diagnosis. He stood in the doorway to take questions from us like he was done and ready to leave...as if his interest in our case was over.
