What People Say About Dr. Scott Maling, DPM

I had high hopes when I came to Dr. Maling a year ago. Last year's orthotics were ordered without a glitch, despite having to wait 2.5 hours after my appointment time to get casted for them. This year I waited 2 hours past my appointment time to see Dr. Maling and was told by him that new orthotics would be ordered immediately using last year's casting and sent directly to my house. Now I find out three weeks later that the orthotics were never even ordered and no notes about the orthotics!

After being in foot pain for 15 years, seeing multiple podiatrists, and a recent terrible experience  with another podiatrist resulting in a cancelled surgery I finally found Dr.Maling. He is always extremely patient with me, encourages me when I get discouraged, and helps me relax during high anxiety/painful times. He remains nonjudgemental,caring, and personable throughout, no matter my emotional state. He's very thorough, knowledgeable and explains and repeats as neccessary.Office staff great

1. There is no patient privacy. All exam room and x-ray room doors are wide open with the doctor calling orders to technicians. 2. Crowded waiting room with lengthy waits. 3. Dr. discusses n..... and primarily orthotics. Radiology report does not mention N.... at all. 4. Medical coding is for leg not the effected foot. Do not go here.

Dr. Maling is awesome in his specialty, plus he has a great 'bed side manner' that makes you feel comfortable and confident.

I have spent 7 months trying to find a shoe the orthotics he had made for me would fit. His office tried 2 shoes and sent me away to search. I am still in pain and I want my money back. I have told my primary care doctor to never recommend Dr. Maling.
