Family Doctor Jakub Malarz, M.D., Welcomes New Patients in Bay City
Family medicine physician Jakub Malarz, M.D.,is welcoming patients of all ages to his new office location at MidMichigan Health Park – Bay, 3051 Kiesel Road in Bay City.
Dr. Malarz has been practicing for ten years in Midland and will join the Health Park September 23. He is excited about the patient-friendly design and amenities offered at MidMichigan Health Park – Bay, which he believes will put patients at ease so they can focus on their health.
“I want to develop a relationship with my patients that allows them to be a very big part of their medical care, to feel a sense of not only responsibility but also accomplishment in achieving a state of healthy living. This new facility has a relaxing environment with a great team that provides lots of personalized attention. We also offer many ways for patients to take charge of their health, such as self-scheduling and e-check-in.”
Dr. Malarz earned his medical degree at Jagiellonian University Medical College in Krakow, Poland, and completed his residency training at MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland. He was attracted to family medicine because he believes it’s the purest form of medicine.
“Family medicine has become the initial starting point of many patients’ health care and the widest spectrum of care available, from newborns to the elderly,” he said. “It also provides the closest relationship between a physician and patient, and this is the part that has always made family medicine rewarding to me.”
The most satisfying aspect of Dr. Malarz’s work is simply seeing patients progress in their medical care and becoming a part of the interactive patient/physician relationship. He believes that his care, both physical and psychological, has allowed him to form strong relationships throughout his career as a doctor. “I try to lead by example and stay active, and use that to motivate patients to eat well and exercise.”
In his free time, Dr. Malarz enjoys mountain biking, road and gravel cycling, and has been actively racing for the past 30 years. He also likes to cross-country and downhill ski. He has two children who share in his adventures.
