I guess it is worth waiting to be seen. "
"very satisfied with my visit. Dr. Malik's office is very thorough, patient and takes the time to listen. The wait was long but understandable. It's flu season. I've waited longer in other doctor's office. Overall, there's never a long wait when I visit."
"From the very minute I walked into the office, I felt comfortable and I have already recommended Doctor First to two of my daughters. Also, the office is so convenient to my home. I look forward to my next visit.
"It was great."
"I am a senior health care expert in TQM therefore my assessment of your office is personal as well as professional. I found your front office staff meeting patients is not adequately trained. Their attitude towards patients and knowledge about important matters like Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C) is very poor. They are young and inexperienced and lacked supervision. Telling a patient we don't take this insurance because we are ignorant about the health care insurance business is a wrong decision. Such assessment and decision making should be made by financial person or a manager but someone who has just finished high school taking instantaneous decision indicates that management is indifferent about very basic issue called welcoming a patient. Your PA staff on the other hand was excellent and showed professional attitude. Not getting care in spite of having Medicare/Medicaid is not only a cause for CMS coming down to your office, it is not good for patient satisfaction counts under ACA.
The other difficulty I found was reaching a care givers by phone. Your calls go to front office and you get placed on a hold. There is a telephone-commercial that runs until the front office staff returns and answers the phone. When one needs a doctor or a PA; one is annoyed by the sells pitch and that is not a positive image for a Clinical practice it sounds like Hyundai Used Car Lot to a person seeking medical assistance. It is better to keep that out and leave a voice mail box for prescription or consulting managers to call patient back. There are better ways to advertise than this and same thing goes for Answering Services you use. I would immediately ask the answering service company to eliminate that pitch because they do not advertise your practice but make money by marketing advertisement services for their other clients. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to tell you about my frustrations."
"Terrible. Spent 5 minutes with me, only to say he can't continue to help me with my pain. Wasn't even getting a controlled substance."
"The Staff and Doctors are great!! I have never had an issue!!"
"Just like most men, I have a tough time going to the doctor. I always feel like I can get through it without the hastle of see the doc. That has changed with meeting with Dr Malik. My first visit he took the time to sit and talk about my general health and he was genuinly interested in my concerns. He has put me on the right path to better health practices."
"Great practice. I was seen by one of Dr. Malik's associates and was very pleased with my visit. I highly recommend this practice."
"This office is a nice office. I think this doctor's office will be my new doctors office."

"Always prompt and professional, Dr. Malik really takes the time to listen and address all concerns. Staff is on task and efficient. Top notch practice."
"The experience was very good but I am not happy with how you share results. The idea of a portal and internet results is good but I can only view my results. I need someone to translate those results to me. What do they mean?"
"This office has always been so nice whenever I come by. They take the time to truly listen to what's wrong with you and properly treat you in the most effective way possible. I'm so grateful to the staff and would recommend it to anyone."
"I got an appointment right away and received excellent service."
"Everything was great, my doctor was fantastic."
"I only came in for a quick visit to get a referral and it was quick and easy (with my appointment), Everyone was very friendly."
"I don't feel I got a very Thorough evaluation.
It felt like I was just going to get a prescription for antibiotics regardless.
My throat felt better for a few days following but now is worse than ever.
I'm going to visit a different health care provider either today or tomorrow. I heard the new one in Olney is very nice.
"Since my first visit to this office,l knew l would come back and l have.The staff is very friendly and polite.They take the time to listen to you and explain whatever that you needed yo know.L promised my cousin that l would give her the phone number to DOCTORS FIRST whenever she was ready for a visit with doctor MALIK.Great doctor!"

"Dr. Malik is such a great doctor. He answered most of my questions and it was very helpful. The staff is very friendly and professional."
"I generally like the doctor and the staff. I feel well served"
"My visits to Dr. Malik have always exceeded satisfaction. He not only listens attentively, but tries to find innovative and drug-free ways (my preference) to solve my problem, but certainly will prescribe medication if that is the only way. I appreciate that he frequently follows up on my health by a phone call and ensures all is well. This is a great office to visit and all the staff is very professional.
"Dr. Malik does take the time to listen and I sense that he really does care for his patients. This is the first time that I feel that way about a doctor. "
"Good visit and all our needs were addressed! Really like that they are making good use of technology to help communicate with patients and increase efficiency."
"Very friendly staff. Wait was minimal both to get into the room as well as the second wait for Dr. Malik. The doctor was personable but did seem to be in a bit of a rush (as is common with doctors' offices). I was a new patient but able to schedule an appointment about 3 days after I first called. I also like having the online portal to access test results and communicate with the staff."
"The staff was quick and efficient. They got me in the same day. I was a walk in patient, which was great. The doctor was great and his assistant was great. The office is very clean. I was happy with my visit."

"I was seen by Mia Waldon i belive she is Dr Maliks assistant She was great she listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions she knew what she was doing "
"I am especiallty surprised at the ability to ask questions through the patient portal and receive prompt answers."
"For being a walk in doctors office, I think the staff and service is excellent. It is very convenient "
"I'm an out of town-er so I made this appointment last minute while in the area visiting my parents. I was greeted with a pleasant welcome by the front staff. I was also pleased that Dr. Malik took time to examine me himself and not base his diagnosis on the Nurse's/PA's findings. I like it when I leave the doctor's office feeling that things were explained to me in a way that I can understand and that's exactly how I felt. If I lived in the area, Dr. Malik would be my doctor of choice. "
"The staff was professional and courteous. Dr. Malik, took the time to listen to my specific illness concerns and he cares for his patients. "
"This was my first visit and I was very pleased. I called on a Thursday afternoon and was seen the very next morning. Dr. Malik took time to answer my questions and make sure I understood his diagnosis. Highly recommended if you do not have a PCP or need to make a last minute appointment or be seen quickly."
"Very good, office staff was pleasent, doctor was great. Easy to talk to. Had answers to my questions, solutions to my concerns, and got me out door quickly. "
"Getting an appointment when we needed it was super easy. The staff was great. Our only concern is that not all of my husbands medicine was submitted to the pharmacy for refills. Two of his prescriptions were not filled. Also he was ordered his insulin, but his syringes. Makes giving the insulin a little difficult. Overall we were pleased. "
"Best nicest doctors office I have ever seen. My concerns were heard and the staff was very nice and helpful. "
"Great staff and fantastic doctor. I saw Dr. Malik on a Saturday (made the appt. first thing in the morning) instead of going to the ER. He took his time to listen to me. I didn't feel rush and he took my concerns seriously and provided the right treatment for my symptoms. I didn't have a Primary Care Provider prior to going to see Dr. Malik, but now I have one. "
"My second visit to this office and both times it's been a pleasurable experience."
"it was fine"
"good experience waited longer this time"
"The office staff is excellent and Dr. Malik is the best!!! He is my primary care physician and I made him my primary after only one visit with him. He takes the time to listen and does not just rush you out the door like many other docs in the area. Dr. Malik is easily accessible through the new patient portal as well, have never had such accessibility to my primary care office, thanks Dr. Malik and the staff!"
"We were a walk in appointment and were seen within the 1st 15 minutes."
"Dr Malik is very personable and easy to get along with, and he listens to what you have to say. The office environment is pleasant and comfortable to be in.
"I always have a pleasant experience at Drs1st! If I have to be sick this is the place to be!!! I have referred my mom, my children and a close family friend to Dr Malik. We are all very pleased with the services he provides to us. Keep up the good work Dr Malik and your helpful staff!"
"Very helpful . Great bedside manners . "
