Dr Malerich operated on my carpal tunnel and I am delighted with the outcome. It has taken quite awhile to heal but Dr Malerich explained EVERYTHING to me so that there were no surprises. Even the painful time of 6 months. He scheduled hand therapy after surgery and it has been wonderful in allowing me to function again. Linda, the therapist, is so knowledge and she and Dr Malerich make quite a team for healing. I wish I could say more but out of characters. Best dr. in town

Dealing with the Dr. is Great! ...Scheduling appointments and calling in and getting prompt response is the problem. Staff is always friendly but everything seems to happen at a snail's pace, or your forgotten altogether (been there). Maybe that's just me, but that's not stopping me going back to the Dr. again!!! PS - I never had to schedule an urgent appointment!
