Verified Patient Reviews
He listened, I didn't feel rushed, and I felt hopeful about my situation upon leaving.
Over the past decade I've met with a few Psychiatrists here in NYC with mixed results. However, this is the first time I've left an appointment immediately understanding more about my own mind and recent struggles with day to day functioning. My experience was an objective/clinical examination and nothing short of enlightening.
Had a great conversation and learned quite a bit - nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Malkin.
Doctor who genuinely cares about his patients. No wait time. Smart and kind. Have been through several psychiatrists in NY and none come close to Doctor Malkin!
I found Dr. Malkin to be a very good listener, but at the same time, able to cut through to the heart of most problems. Rarely did I need to express myself more than a single time for him to " get it". He's also pretty hip, technologically, a plus for me. He answers e-mails promptly and sends Rx's to your local pharmacy directly (standard, but it needs to be said nonetheless).
Dr. Malkin is excellent. He took his time to understand what I needed and is helping me get a plan together. He is smart and caring. I would highly recommend!
I thought Dr. Malkin was great. He's a good listener, he asks smart questions, notices details, is thorough and thoughtful, and makes helpful suggestions. I recommend him!
Dr Malkin was extremely informative and seemed very knowledgeable. I look forward to seeing him again.
Dr. Malkin is extremely professional, a great listener, and gives great advise / material to help yourself. I'm happy that ZocDoc and their reviews pointed me in his direction, and I plan on continuing to utilize his services in both the near and long term futures.
Dr. Dmitry is super professional and personable. He made me feel comfortable right away and gave me confidence in my diagnosis.
Over the last 20+ years, I've seen many doctors and therapists who erroneously diagnosed me with anxiety and/or depression. Dr. Malkin is the first doctor to finally diagnose my ADD. My life has improved dramatically and I owe it all to Dr. Malkin's education and treatment of my life long struggle with ADD. Highly Recommend!!
He listens very well, is concise and direct and focused on practical solutions, and keeps you on topic while giving leeway when certain things are hard to explain. Treatment is early so TBD, but he knows the science really well and seems insightful and experienced about the pros/cons of different treatment approaches and how to figure out the right approach for your situation.
Dr. Malkin was helpful, but after several visits and trying to adjust my medication to make it work for me, I didn't always feel like he was taking my thoughts/feelings into consideration, and I sometimes felt pressured to take his advice even after voicing my concerns. Ultimately, this led me to decide to find a different doctor. Additionally, while he does seem very knowledgable, there's something about his personality that's sort of cold and aloof, which wasn't very comforting to me when discussing my mental health issues.
Very skilled, insightful. Will definitely go back.
He is very honest and concise. Treatment is to TBD but I think he analyzes human behavior well.
Very competent for my anxiety/panick attacks condition
