Being a health practitioner myself I was very impressed by the medical care and expertise by Dr. Malotte I have received when I was in need of an ENT examination. Dr. Malotte took a thorough medical history of my concerns, performed a gentle probe down my throat, delivered his diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations while presenting himself with excellent bedside manners towards me. Grateful and pleased I can only give the highest grade of patient satisfaction and I do recommend Dr.

My daughter had a overcharge and it was difficult getting it straightened out. When she went back to a doctor appointment there, the office staff was talking about it loudly amongst themselves so she could hear. Very unprofessional
