I visited Dr. Malfitano today after breaking my wrist a couple of weeks ago. She examined my wrist and explained her plan of treatment thoroughly to me so I would know exactly what to expect during my course of treatment in the next 6-8 weeks. Her demeanor was professional, courteous & compassionate. She took her time & even addressed some unrelated concerns that I had with another injury, providing me with helpful guidance. I was very satisfied & highly recommend Dr. M & her whole team.

When my results came back that I didn't have carpel tunnel, she dismissed me. When I asked her what I do about my fingers on my right hand going cold and numb she told me to wait until spring and see if it still happens and left the room. I felt totally dismissed by her like I was making up my pain. I went to a different DR/group where I was diagnosed easily with tennis elbow That's all I wanted, a diagnosis so I can fix it. Dr Malfitano could not do that, she could not be bothered with me.
