in Smyrna, DE |
Dr. Malone performed my spinal fusion in November. He is the first Doctor I have had that thoroughly explained the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I had a question regarding caring for the wound after coming home and had a call back within 5 minutes. He actually asked "Do you have any further questions?" I would definitely recommend him to all.

Great doctor and very thorough, knowledgeable and cares about patients. I had surgery done by Dr. Malone, I was scared due to failed surgery many years ago. But he is one I not only would recommend, but trust for any/all surgeries in the future should it.

Bad review for Dr. Malone here in Dover. My daughter explained to Dr. Malone she wanted the waterproof cast he was advertising 2 feet away because she is active and doesn't want the cast to get nasty over time and his reply was you do huh? He then wrapped her forearm in a regular cast and told her not to get it wet. She removed the cast 2 days early because it got wet and was nasty. He got angry at her and asked why she even came to the appointment. She came because she knows he has to see
