I am very pleased with Dr. Maloney. It is difficult for any doctor to fill the shoes of Dr. Blagrave (my Dr. for 36 yrs) but he has done it well as far as I am concerned. No two people have the same personalities nor methods. For those of you who commented on his admitting he "doesn't know...let me look it up" Dr. Blagrave did the same thing numerous times for me and no doubt others. I, for one, would rather a doctor admit he/she doesn't know and either look it up or refer me to someone who does. To me that is a true knowledgeable doctor. Not one who drops the ball and prescribes medication willy-nilly. I have some rather numerous and odd medical problems and he has been very understanding with each visit. My hat off to Dr. Maloney.
I went on this site to look for new doctor. Upon reading some of Dr. maloneys reviews I realize I am not alone in regards to his bedside manner. It has improved but first impressions, especially being the one in the vulnerable side of the office, are hard to dismiss. My first meeting with him...he came in and did not make eye contact, started going through papers and then jerked head up and slightly annoyed and a hint of sarcasm, wanted to know what it was I was there for. No introduction,basically rude. I don't care in what scenario I was to meet someone for first time, I would never behave in such an arrogant way. He is definitely not my previous doctor, Who I never spent more than five min. with, but you felt heard in a relaxed , respectful manner. He does not intimidate me, but I think it would inhibit his ability to give proper care to the more vulnerable. I have requested for more intimate procedures to be referred to someone else, never felt the need for that before.
Dr Maloney has an amazing staff. No one runs a ship tighter than Marlene and she couldn't be more kind or efficient in doing so. Rothesay Medical is like a family we are lucky to have. Dr Maloney has far beyond established his role in this family. Unfortunately at times we require more care than we would wish to. I have never had an issue getting an appointment or been made to wait. I have been squeezed in and taken on short notice into his overloaded patient list. I have been treated well, respected, listened to and have had anything I had inquired about followed up on. It is nice to have someone who actually listens to you and treats you like a person. I think anyone who stepped into his position in the legacy of Dear Dr Blagrave,whom we all love,had many eyes watching with great expectations. Hats off to you Dr Maloney!! Kudos on making your mark and providing such wonderful care. In a world we are lucky to even have a Dr I am beyond grateful to have one as supportive and dedicated
I was not overly impressed with our my new doctor on my first few visits that I had with him...I found him a bit dismissive and border line sarcastic which I found more than a little upsetting as I am pretty low maintenance as far as my health , at least so far ! ....l also feel respect for patients is pretty important.....I was not looking forward to my next appt with him actually ! ...But I found I was pleasantly surprised ! He seemed pleasant and friendly ! I was so pleased ! ...Again I had no major needs but I now feel if I did have big issues that he would really listen to me ! ...I normally never place a comment on a site like this but I feel encouragement needs to be given where it is deserved...I have to say that I was impressed!!!
From the point of view of a male in his mid 20's, Dr. Maloney is a down to earth, approachable doctor. Being a new and younger physician, I find him far less intimidating than some older, more experienced doctors that tend to jump to conclusions and push you out the door. He takes his time, listens and when he doesn't know, he makes the honest effort to search further. Anyone who wishes he'd keep his uncertainties to himself is clearly not concerned with receiving the proper treatment. I'd much rather hear "I don't know, let me look into that" than "here's a generic prescription".
Doc had big shoes to fill and has done so admirably. I feel he is approachable, reasonable, and honest. And much like Dr. B, he is not afraid to say he doesn't know, but will research and find out. So thankful to have him and his wonderful staff (huge shout out to Marlene).
I am more than happy with Dr. Maloney. The first visit was a getting to know him after having Dr. B for so long. I'm sure he was very nervous taking over this practice but is sure doing a great job. If you go in with a list of several things he goes over them one at a time. We are fortune to have him and not like many others who don't have a Dr. Keep up the good work Dr. Maloney. You are appreciated. :)
