“There are few things more rewarding than for me to find that the next name in my appointment book is one that I’ve known for decades,” says the lifelong Omahan and son of Malbar founder Dr. Stanley Malashock. “Whether it’s a friend that goes all the way back to childhood or now the children and even grandchildren of those friends, serving our neighbors here in Omaha is a central part of the Malbar philosophy.”
Dr. Malashock’s sense of community reaches far beyond the examination chair. A longtime supporter of several local nonprofits, he is also a frequent guest speaker at gatherings whenever the topic of child vision development, visual disorders or prevention of eye diseases is on the agenda.
