she was very compassionate and caring. it was an add on consult so the time needed to get the appt is not really important I'm just glad I was able to get in. she has a great bedside manner and I am comfortable with her advice.

National Jewish Health PatientSeptember, 2018
Before this appt. always thought provider outstanding. Today things were very confused - maybe I was just so sick I could not follow what she was doing.

National Jewish Health PatientSeptember, 2018

She is an excellent Doctor

National Jewish Health PatientAugust, 2018
only issue I had was I saw her for the first time at the end of May and had a bunch of tests and did not get back in with her again until August to discuss those tests and get the answers of the results. That's a long time to wait and wonder. love though that Dr Maleki is very thorough and leaves no stone unturned.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2018

Please make Dr. Maleki happy. She is the best Rheumatologist I have ever had in my 40 years living with [condition]. She is giving me back my life. She is bringing me comfort as a mother as she recently diagnosed my daughter with [condition]. I am confident my daughter will not suffer to the degree I have had to with [condition]. Dr. Maleki's care from the start will mean my daughter will thrive and sore to the hieghts she wants to in life.
