What can a patient say when he/she is lied to by the staff? What can a patient say when the doctor, who orders a shoulder MRI, and doesn't even take the time to show you the MRI which clearly shows a mass of scar tissue? What can you say when the patient is the one who has to ask all the questions and the doctor doesn't care to answer? What can you say when the patient is told "surgery" and surgery wasn't required? I went to a sports orthopedist who fixed my injury without cutting.

Wonderful Doctor, Wonderful Person.

I had shoulder surgery performed by the best period. Dr Malcarney may be the BEST shoulder surgeon in the country.

Dr Malcarney performed an arthroscopic repair on my right rotor-cuff on 10/7/16. Her high level of confidence(both reassuring and contagious) is evenly matched by her surgical skills. I did a lot of shopping around for many years to find the "best" doctor possible for this procedure. I'm convinced I found the best....can't thank her enough...can only pay her what I owe. ;-)

Great doctor! Had to wait 4 month to see her, but we'll worth it. Took care of my frozen shoulder and rotator cuff tear. Had virtually no pain from the surgery and got my range of motion back quickly.

Shoulder Arthroscopy and tmt, This surgeons skill cannot be beat!

Dear Dr. Malcarney, This is Mercy Balderrama, a patience of yours. You operating on my right knee on March 14, 2011. After searching for you, I was able to find you and immediately call today 05/31 to see you. Unfortunately the reception person told me that the next appointment w/you August. She seems not to care and concern. I told her that I am in terrible pain that I need it to see you but she sounded like she didn't care at all! Returning patients should be welcome!! Mercy Balderrama

Appreciated everything about my visit with Dr Malcarney and NV Orthopedics. She extremely assessable in answering my post surgery questions. Should I have future orthopedic needs, Dr Malcarney is my doc.
in Fallon, NV |
Highly skilled and compassionate Doctor. Listens to everything you say. I feel she appreciates you as a patient.
in Reno, NV |
I scheduled a surgery, with Dr. Malcarney, for a complete Rotator Cuff tear based off of the recommendation of people that I know who have had past shoulder surgeries, and work in the medical field. I was looking for the best shoulder surgeon, that I could find, as I wanted to get back in the weight room after this miserable injury. A lot of times you hear multiple names when trying to find a top surgeon, not in this case. Every patient, surgeon, nurse, and Pt, all agreed, Hilary Malcarney is it
