I do recommend Dr. Malik to my friends and family with [condition]. I think he is one of the top 2 doctors I have ever seen. My daughter is a nurse practitioner and asthma educator. She went with me several years ago when I was first being seen at National Jewish. She also feels he is o e of the best doctors she has encountered, smart and not intimidating to the patient.

Have been seeing *Dr. Malik since "date" - have had such excellent care from him!! Among the best providers I've ever seen.

National Jewish Health PatientAugust, 2016
Dr. Malik is an amazing doctor. He took the time to speak with me and was very honest about what is going on. He also phoned me after hours to let me know what directions I needed to take with my health. It is far and few between that you find doctors like him, that take the time to make sure their patients are doing ok. I could not be more pleased with him and how kind and understanding he is. He also goes above and beyond to try and get to the point of what is going on.
