Dear Family of Dr. Malik, Please accept my sincerest sympathies on the passing of such a wonderful man. Dr. Malik helped me understand exactly what I had to do to resolve my throat issue - about 25 years ago. He understood that as a language teacher, speaking is very important. He was patient and kind. May he rest in peace.

Very sad to hear of this. Dr. Malik took care of me back in 1979 or 1980 when as a young kid I needed tubes in my ears and my adenoids removed. To this day, he was one of my favorite doctors. Best wishes and happy memories to his family.
