Dr. Malalis listens when you speak. He is willing to try different solutions than he might normally choose. He is warm and caring, unlike some physicians who only tell you what to do and then send you on your way. I always leave Dr. Malalis' office with a clear plan of action that we have both agreed upon and a smile on my face.
