Dr Malone was great, the examinations he performed on me were very quick and small, so the appointment was very quick. Positive that it was quick and efficient, negative that it felt like it would be hard to perform a thorough check that quickly.

Dr. Malone took care of a cyst I had in my hand that has been bothering me for the last few years.

Excellent care by Dr. Malone and his entire staff, the surgical staff and anesthesiology staff. Have recommended Dr. Malone to others and will continue to do so. I have been treated kindly, and with respect by everyone I have encountered. Dr. Malone and the entire outpatient surgical staff at *** are a huge asset to University Hospitals, just as the entire outpatient surgical staff at *** are. Dr. Malone has performed *** surgeries on my ***, with one more to go, and I would not have anyone but Dr. Malone perform the surgeries. All of the nurses are kind, make sure that I am comfortable, and take a moment to talk with me. The anesthesiologist was fantastic, friendly, engaging, and answered all of my questions. Having dealt with surgeons, nurses, etc., during my career, I must tell you that these people really are exceptional and are a true example of what your hospital strives for with patient care.

At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities.

At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
