He was very professional...he knows his stuff! He found small fractures on my back from an MRI last year. My previous dr. ONLY told me about the two when I fell although I've always had a bad back and asked him to really look! My bones are so thin his is not sure surgery is best option. I will never go to any other orthopedic dr only Dr. Malone

Doctor Malone listened to my problems. Then had me have a MRI. He was able to show and explain to me my problem. He makes you understand in laymen's words. I had the surgery and am very pleased with the results. His staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend Doctor Malone very highly.

I really like Dr. Malone bedside manner. He is straightforward with his patients and he explains what he can and cannot do for you! His staff is great ! They are very quick to handle patients requests and paperwork requested by employers in timely manner ! They take the time to answer your questions and if they dont know the answer they will go to full lengths to help you find it! I would recommend Dr.Stephen Malone,s office to all my family and friends!

I had been having problems with my back for years and being military I was subject to the system. Finally I got a referral to see Doc Malone. I like his matter of fact attitude as he doesn't sugar coat anything. Some people need the coddling I guess. I left his office with all my questions answered and scheduled for surgery. Now it's almost a year later and I'm a new man. I feel so good not to be in pain every waking moment. Awesome Doctor and staff.

A complete fail as a practitioner and a human being. Aside from behaving as if I was wasting his time during scheduled appointments, his statements were unethical and abusive. He first diagnosed me with OPLL, gave a completely asinine explanation of what that is and told me that there was no treatment other than surgery. He then proceeded to tell me that should I injure myself, it would be “on the Christopher Reeve end” of catastrophic outcomes. Nice thought to leave an active, 44 yo woman with.

Very rude and uncaring doctor makes you feel very uncomfortable in asking questions about your procedure. Has been known to have some of his procedures fail multiple times.

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
