I was late a few minutes and somewhat nervous. I had pain and felt grumpy. As soon as I approached the front desk, ALL receptionists were so kind and patient. The nurses, and x-ray technician were also very helpful and kind. My waiting time was minimal. All staff were efficient and I did not see anyone wasting time as I have in other offices. Dr. Malhis was wonderful! He immediately diagnosed my ailment, was reassuring and helpful. He is the best orthopaedic doctor. I left feeling so much better. I left for home feeling relieved from worry and pain. Thank you!!!

August 19, 2016
Amazing Doctor. Had read her chart prior to our appointment and was familiar with my daughter's health history. Thorough. He even shared some concerns about other areas of my daughter's health that were not his area of expertise and was glad to read on her chart that we were following up with those concerns. Other doctors are sometimes dismissive and focus ONLY on the one body part you are having checked. Dr. Malhis understands that these parts are only a part of the whole.

He is very proactive in finding thee exact problem.
