I’ve been seeing Dr Maben for over 20 years. She’s the best, always has time to listen to your concerns, never makes me feel like she’s rushing through the visit. I’ve recommended her to 2 friends who also see her now.

New patient visit only experience so far. Totally satisfied. Dr. Maben took plenty of time to discuss history, any ongoing issues, and need for prescription refills. Other family members are or have been patients and speak highly of her.

My wife and I both see Dr. Maben. I also have many friends that also use her. She takes the time to listen to any needs or concerns. With the convenient location off of 2 highways it is easy to get to. There is a lab in the office if blood work is needed. Downstairs there is a Diagnostic Imaging if tests are needed. I highly recommend this practice.

I have been a patient of Dr Maben for a number of years and very satisfied. SHE WAS AVAILABLE WHEN I NEED FOLLOW-UP CARE A NUMBER OF YEAR AGO. She continues be available for my medical needs, whether it be consultation by phone, follow up in her office, or a need for a new medical appointment in a timely fashion.. Most of all, she excels in her medical knowledge and patient care. I (82 years old female) feel extremely lucky and happy that I have Dr Maben as my Primary Physician. Thank you!
