Mychel Rodriguez, Medical Assistant

Dr. Maleki has a unique approach to her practice in medicine: sincerity. She has a passionate concern for her patients, one you don't see in healthcare today.

Dr. Maleki once told me "There's more to the practice of medicine than office hours." She truly cares for her patients and their well-being, as shown by her after hours one-on-one patient follow up calls, her willingness to not only listen but to educate, and her endless research to gather information to give her patients actual facts.
