She is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Medical School and completed her general surgery residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC.
“Patients are always anxious when they visit a doctor, especially a surgeon,” said Dr. Malcolm. “Part of being a good doctor is to listen to the patient, take a good history and keep the patient informed. Some patients need a little more time and that’s okay.“
“Every patient is unique,” she said, “and deserves whatever time they need to understand what is going on and to get their work-up done properly.”
Patients at Calvert Surgical Care receive a comprehensive examination, consultation, educational review, diagnosis and treatment of surgical disorders. Dr. Malcolm is committed to providing the highest quality and most effective care to each of her patients. She works closely with referring physicians to determine the best surgical treatment for each patient and encourages patients and their families to participate in all decisions made regarding their care.
