Awesome! awesome! awesome! They take such good of you. Staff is fantastic! One session and I feel way better. AXIOM THANK YOU!
I pulled a muscle liftings weights in the morning and by the afternoon I wasn’t able to move my neck to the left. I carefully drove to Dr. Patel’s office and was immediately taken care of. Dr. Patel has a great way of explaining what has occurred to cause your pain and gives you the proper understanding of what needs to be done in order to solve the problem.
My brother referred me to Dr. Patel a few months ago after tiring of my complaints of neck/back pain from a car accident. I finally worked up the courage to go. The only word I can think of to describe this man is AMAZING. He is simply amazing! I’ve had three treatments so far and I feel like a new person!
My first choice in medical care and advice, Dr. Malkin is a doctor you can have an honest conversation with regarding your health. His services are comprehensive and he is always focused on your best interest.
I have only had great experiences with Dr. Malkin! works with my crazy schedule and is easy and efficient, with a high quality of service. I highly recommend Dr. Malkin for his attentiveness and superior care.
