Review for Dr. Malva

Vincent (I can't call him a doctor) didn't even check my patient history to see some high numbers are normal for me, saw my lab results and literally said "You're dead for sure". Those exact words came out of his mouth, is that professionalism in a doctor?

Dr. Paley is an amazing surgeon. She makes you feel at ease through the entire process; before and after surgery. She is a true delight as is her staff to be around. I couldn’t be happier with my results. She is truly amazing. Don’t hesitate if you are debating on working with her.

Robin Lyons Oct 09 2019

Review for Dr. Paley

He cares about his patients and is conscientious in prescribing medications. He is personable and not arrogant as some psychiatrists can be. The only complaint I have is that he doesn't really spend that much time with the patient, mainly prescribes meds.
