Ratings for Dr. Bella M. Malits
I am disabled and have been going to Dr Malits for years, and have seen many doctors. I have had only positive experiences with her and her staff! I see her every two months and have found that the wait time is better than most doctor appointments I have been to. Her receptionist makes you feel like you have known her all of your life and I look forward to her positive attitude. Her staff I have found to be extremely professional and caring! Dr Malits herself listens and has never rushed me out of her office and I have asked alot of questions. She has refused to give me my shots due to my blood pressure which is the best thing for my health, She would have made more money on me if she just gave me my shots! I have seen several other doctors who come off as very arrogant and have not found this with Dr Malits! I am grateful for my experience with her and felt compelled to give my opinion! Everyone has there right but give her a chance she grows on you!!
I have read all of the negative comments below and, unfortunately, my experience has been the same as ALL of those described and worse. I have never rated a doctor before, but Malits is so terrible that I feel ethically driven to warn about her. She and her staff provide a bizarre, surreal experience. Time and again, I was given misinformation about my health. I had to call at least four times to get her to actually order the test that she wanted me to have. At each visit, she and her nurses (assistants?) seemed as if they couldn't have cared less about me. I finally gave up, in as much pain as when I started with Malits. I do want to single out one of the receptionists, however. She was always a true pleasure and very serious about her job, but she had very little power to help me. Please, if you are in pain: step away from the phone and fine someone else to call. You can do much better. (BTW, I am forced here to give at least one star. My real rating is "no stars," across the board, except for five stars for one of the receptionists.)
Once left me waiting half-undressed for almost an hour. These folks don't seem to realize that patients may also have appointments - such as jobs - that they have to get to. The receptionist is lovely but the nurses are dour and unfriendly. Dr. Malits has no bedside manner or empathy. Considering that patients who see her are typically in extreme pain, this career choice seems to be a very poor one for her. I happen to be suffering from disc pain as I am writing, but I would rather wait for my surgeon to return from vacation in 3 weeks and limp around than to make an appointment with her. Enough said.
Never go to her!!! She is only about money!!! Gave me wrong diagnosis. After her I cannot walk on my foot. Only think dollars. She is crasy lady. At my few minutes visit, she was talking to her ex-hasband about money and he have to pay something, screamed at him. Then she came back to me. Never ever go to her!!!
