First the positives - Dr. Malde has great bedside manner. She is warm, down to earth, and takes the time to listen to her patients and answer any questions. She made me feel very cared for during my initial visit and allergy testing. I love her sense of humor and helpful suggestions for managing my allergies. Now for the constructive feedback - this may have more to do with the system of NM and managed care in general, but Dr. Malde is often over-scheduled and juggling multiple patients at once to the point of interrupting my appointments to talk to a MA about another patient and/or making me have to wait for long stretches before she can get to me (20+ minutes). There seems to be a lack of communication from Dr. Malde to her MA staff as they regularly seem out of the loop about what is going on. Dr. Malde has seemed rushed, flustered, and distracted to me at times. Once she even took a personal phone call (that didn’t seem urgent) right as we were beginning our appointment. I know doctors are busy and the US healthcare system is a shitshow but my interactions with NM Allergy have been disappointing at best and of poor quality at worst. It has made me question the NM reputation and I am seriously considering transferring my care and taking my business elsewhere.

We had moved from Texas where almost everyone was allergic, mostly to cedar. After a few years of coughing and sinus problems in Chicago, I scheduled an appointment at NM Allergy. After testing and talking, Dr. Malde was able to diagnose the problem accurately and I didn't need shots. She is knowledgeable, upbeat and a pleasure to work with.

Not only is she so kind and takes all the time that is needed. She goes out of her way for her patients. When I had COVID, not only did her nurse call me, she called me as well. Was on the phone with me for about 30 minutes. Made sure I had an action plan should I get sicker, but gave me things to do to get better faster! Don’t know if I would have recovered as well without her help!

Dr. Malde is very personable however she goes way too fast. She skipped over about a dozen medical history questions, assuming they weren’t relevant to me, but they were. She also speaks at a mile a minute and runs through things so quickly then leaves that by the time you catch up to what she said, she is gone. Did not feel confident in her care.

I would recommend Dr Malde personally for care but not through the NW system. As I mentioned above, I think Dr Malde is a great physician , I just don’t appreciate that NW doesn’t respect my time and thinks nothing of it when my noon appointment doesn’t start until 1:20 but if someone I knew were in search of an allergist I would recommend Dr. Malde with the caveat that they need to block out half a day of work for appointments.
