    Really negative experience for someone supposed to be "one of the best". Every office appointment = guaranteed waiting room time of 2-4 hours. That's shows a total lack of respect for patients. 6 months post surgery - hand is worse than before.

    Doctor Malone was very insightful and was extremely thorough with me. He made sure you felt satisfied when you left and answers all of your questions.

    Dr. Melone ruined my career and passion. DO NOT get wrist surgery with Dr. Melone if you are an athlete. I was riding BMX professionally and had a crash that resulted in a wrist injury. Dr. Melone confidently told me that he could do a procedure that would make my wrist stronger than when I was born. I made the mistake of trusting him and going into surgery. He did an unnecessarily complicated procedure that left my wrist crooked, painful, and has led to more problems than I had before surgery.

    I am a pianist. After sustaining multiple fractures in my finger, other doctors said that my finger would have to be fused. It's a miracle. I thank Dr. Malone every day for restoring my finger and for my return to the joy of making music.
