My Professional Background

Dr. Malaki


Dr. Afshin Malaki, MD, MBA, FACOG

Over a period of seven years at the McFarland Clinic in Ames, Iowa, Dr. Malaki specialized in low-risk and high-risk obstetrical care, and other OBGYN services including minimally invasive approaches to Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Urinary Incontinence, Gynecological Cancers and Chronic Pelvic Pain.

Personal Attention is Our Care Philosophy

In today’s world of corporate and large group medical practices, personalized attention from a solo doctor might be perceived as either old-fashioned or progressive. It has been my dream to offer this type of care because I believe it is essential in the healthcare industry.  It promotes more effective healing and faster recovery from both natural processes such as pregnancy and delivery, and from illness. My goal is to offer the highest level of OBGYN treatment and care that is customized to each patient’s unique healthcare needs.

As an independent OBGYN in Scottsdale, AZ, I personally attend to each patient at Scottsdale Personal OBGYN.  Over twenty years of experience as a medical doctor and specializing in obstetrics and gynecology allows me to offer patients a full range of women’s health services from routine checkups to specialized surgical procedures.  Because each patient’s situation and needs are different, I feel that customized treatment offers the most effective health solutions.
