Patient Comments (5)
in Carthage TX |
From the onset, Dr Maale is kind but direct. Since my surgery in 2012, my husband and I have grown to respect him more than his reputation demands. I would highly recommend Dr Maale.
in Rowlett, TX |
Dr.Maale is very professional. He really cares about his patients.
in Palo Alto, Ca |
My father was diagnosed with an aggressive sarcoma at the age of 86. Dr. Maale did not sit down with my sister dad and I and clearly discus the severity of his cancer and our options. Instead he spoke in medical terms, was quickly in and out of the room , did not direct conversation to my dad and suggested aggressive chemotherapy, radiation and more surgery. He did not offer palliative care as an option. We were chasing a cure when we should have been enjoying our last moments.
in deridder, la |
I truly believe that Dr.maals saved my life. He is a man of few words but when I presented with my tumor he was quick to get his own scans and set up a team of 5 doctors to help him. He said he has never seen on so involved. He now presents my case at his conferences all over. I needed 16 units of blood, 4 units of frozen plasma, and 1 unit of platelets. I truly believe I would not be here today if it was not for him and his wonderful team.
in Gainesville, TX |
Dr. Maale is a man of few words, but a wonderful doctor and surgeon. If it hadn't been for Dr. Maale I more than likely would have lost my leg and very well could've lost my life.
