Dr. Malone saved my life by his quick action after diagnosing me with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He sent me me to Stanford Cancer hospital the next day that resulted in remission of my leukemia. I was looked at by 2 other doctor's, even had blood tests, my symptoms were classic for AML but they ignored them.

Dr. Malone treated me in 2013 for Hodgkins Lymphoma. This was not my first time fighting it. He is by far the best oncologist that I have had in my battles against cancer. He is a great listener and really helps you to understand what is going on and what the plan of action is.

Very informed, easy to talk to, spends enough appointment time, but is almost impossible to contact by phone. Phone mail is almost never returned. (

Very difficult to get appointment. Does not return calls in a timely manner. Seems rushed. Office staff is insensitive. I believe he takes on too many patients. He is knowledgeable but if you cannot get in the office that does you no good. Go some place where they act like they care about YOU!
