Patient Comments (3)
in Nevada City, CA |
I had severe pain and was getting a bit of a run-around. Dr. Maldonado's staff went to bat for me with the insurance company and got me into the office the next morning. Dr. Maldonado relieved the majority of the pain and scheduled surgery for the next day. He's all business and his staff is warm and compassionate. Super thankful!
Auburn, CA |
I felt like Dr Maldonado had my best interest at heart. He listened, he was professional, and he had solutions!
in Grass Valley, Ca. |
Went to see him for a consultation and found him to be very unkind and rude. Would not recommend this surgeon at all.
