Dr Malone is an expert in his field, well-respected by other doctors. As a physician myself, this is why I chose to see him specifically - not only is he respected for his technical skill and knowledge, but he also has a reputation for a kind bedside manner. Though I had never personally met him until this visit, I can now agree with colleagues that he has earned this stellar reputation - he was accommodating, patient, careful with my pain when examining me, went through my MRI with me, and answered my questions thoroughly. I will definitely recommend him to future patients if they need a hand surgeon.

Dr Malone is the ONLY surgeon I have ever had (in last yr 2 other surgeries) that knows how to talk with and listen to his patient. When I had questions he answered and explained in a kind, understanding manner. He was NOT defensive like my questions were degrading his work. He has ZERO ego/god complex like my other surgeons. Dr Malone is confident about his abilities and conveys that in a way that puts the patient at ease. I wish there were more doctors/surgeons like him.

Dr. Malone has been great. Everything prompt etc. Very nice doc, great bedside manner. I know he does tons of surgery but do feel that , as a writer and professor, I did ask multiple times if I'd be able to work during this time (Surgery and recovery) and people kept saying yes. The answer should have been no. It was a much bigger deal than I expected and I have hardly been able to work at all. I wish someone had better explained that to me, it has had a vehh th negative impact on my job. Had I understood what the surgery and recovery would require I would have, for example, taken this semester off of teaching. Because people kept telling me ( him and staff) that I'd be able to type etc I didn't ask for a break. Now I'm two months into missed deadlines and obligations I can't fill. That has not been good, to put it mildly, and I feel like would have been largely preventable if I had been given correct information regarding the surgery, physical limitations, recovery etc.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. 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. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. 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.
