Dr. Malek knows what he is doing. I trust his ability to diagnose me but I didn’t feel seen or heard by him. I felt rushed thru the process.

I have been going to this practice since 2016 and I just want to say how grateful I am for Medical Assistant Laressa. She is the best! She is kind, gentle, knowledgeable, and caring. She takes her time, walks me through each step of what she’s doing even though I have had these treatments many times. Getting these bladder treatments are no fun for sure but knowing you have someone who is knowledgeable about what you are going through and so caring, definitely helps make the process a little easier. Thank you Laressa for all you do!

I am a specialty trained surgeon and urogynecologist with experience treating women's health problems, including pelvic organ prolapse, uterine prolapse, cystoceles and rectoceles. I also specialize in treating bothersome bladder issues, including urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.

Following a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, I completed a three-year fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (urogynecology). My training combines elements of gynecology, urology and pelvic reconstructive surgery. This allows me to provide comprehensive treatment options that can improve a woman's quality of life.

When surgery is necessary, I specialize in a minimally invasive approach, which leads to faster recovery, less pain and a shorter hospital stay. I am committed to using the latest and most effective treatments available and to providing exceptional care to my patients.

My aim is to listen to and work with patients to help them make an informed decision regarding their pelvic health, with a goal of ultimately improving their quality of life.
