National Jewish Health Patient– October, 2021 Is very nice and help me in everything National Jewish Health Patient– October, 2021 Dr. Maleki picked up on my personality and how I want lots of detailed about average information on my condition and medication and provided me with extra reading material from a clinician reading level. This is something I wish more doctors picked up about me. She is great National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2021 Great doctor and advisor, [comment about support staff]. Thanks. National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2021 Very knowledgeable and professional and kind National Jewish Health Patient– September, 2021 Everyone at National Jewish is friendly and helpful. National Jewish Health Patient– August, 2021 Provider is outstanding!! National Jewish Health Patient– August, 2021 Dr Melaki is a gifted physician and I am blessed to have her providing me care National Jewish Health Patient– July, 2021 This care provider (and all of them in NJH)are over the top rating for caring and taking care of me. I will see Dr M at any time plus she provided me with contact [information] if any further questions that I would have National Jewish Health Patient– July, 2021 Physician was through in explanations and allowed me to ask questions and explore alternatives. National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2021 Dr. Maleki and the team at National Jewish have changed my life. I'm a younger patient and spent years seeing multiple doctors trying to get answers without any success. I had a giant list of symptoms negatively impacting my life and Dr. Maleki addressed every single one from the very first visit. She was knowledgeable to order the tests that would give us answers and finally get my symptoms treated or putting me in the care of other NJH Doctors who could address other issues caused by my disease. This last visit was no different. Dr. Maleki takes the time to genuinely care and listen. She checks any areas of concern and gives me options for treatment that she believes is most effective for me. She is kind and compassionate and makes me feel comfortable during every visit. My disease has become manageable and was caught before more damage was done. I am so grateful for Dr. Maleki and the team at NJH, they have given me the ultimate gift - my health. show more National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2021 is very good in friendly National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2021 Dr Maleki didn't ask about my symptoms, told me I was healthy without asking about my health or experience. [PHI] She spoke over me and down to me as if I haven't been a rheumatological patient for over 5 years, and when I brought it up she asked me the same questions she asked me at my last 2 appointments. She told me directly she didn't read my notes before the appointment and made no effort to during said appointment. This was an utterly confusing and distressing appointment that made me feel like I wanted to die at the end. It literally took away all of my hope to do with my healthcare. National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2021 I love Dr. Maleli, [Comment about another provider]. I decided to try Dr. Maleki and NJH and I was amazed at how the whole staff at NJH and Dr. Maleki showed support for my concerns and my health. Dr. Maleki listened to me and examined my body and actually cared about what was going on and listened to me when I explained that I reacted differently to meds and that you had to have an open mind about my care. Dr. Maleki is amazing in that she listened and is willing to try to help me through difficult medical issues and to work with me about my care and needs. I will and do recommend this doctor and hospital to everyone I know that has medical issues that they need someone to listen too them also. National Jewish Health Patient– May, 2021 Dr. Maleki is my favorite doctor because she listens, considers my own preferences, but also very clearly explains to me why her recommendations make good sense for me. i trust her absolutely!

We feel very confident that she will do the best she can to make me better. National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2021 She wanted to do tests and then let me know whats going on. Which is good so I don't have to worry, but I am someone who needs to know what to expect and since its going to be about 2 months before i can get another appointment. Its tough. National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2021 I love my RA dr she is very caring and helpful to my condition National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2021 I like the fact that she listens to me and we come up with a plan and move forward.
