Ratings for Dr. Garnet Maley
Dr. Maley has been accepting new patients for more than 30 years, mainly because he has had trouble keeping them. After my previous doctor moved to the US in 2007, I switched to Dr. Maley as he was the only male Dr at the time accepting new patients (which is rare for established Drs in Milton). I saw Dr. Maley 3x. As a thyroid patient, I am used to doing blood tests, Dr. Maley would write my prescriptions without doing any tests. My third visit was for a physical, which Dr, Maley did while sitting 10 feet from me across the room from behind a desk. That was the final straw for me leading to no more visits.
Dr. Maley was my doctor for several years, but I never had enjoyed my visit. Between the front staff who are awfully rude, and his inattention to detail, I couldn't wait to find a new family doctor. I also had a blood test done and was never informed of the results until I called months later.
He is excepting patients but won't take a patient if you want to change dr in town . Current dr old and need new one but they won't take on patient due to this . So why are you taking on new patients ??? But when call the answer is no ? Staff rude in phone !
Dr. Maley has been my GP since 1988 which is when I was born. He is certainly a curt man with a dry and closed-off demeanour but is very knowledgeable and helpful. He's friendly if you engage him but otherwise he is simply trying to help his patients. He has a reputation for being unkind but when I am sick I have a mother for TLC and a doctor to help me get better.
I contacted Dr. Maley's office to schedule a blood test for Zika virus. I met with a nurse practitioner named Mark who sat with me a scheduled the test to be done. I had the test done later that day. Here's where Dr. Maley's office dropped the ball. Nobody contacted me with the results for over a month, when I called all they said was the results weren't back yet. By the time we hit 1 1/2 months from the test, they finally tell me that the test was cancelled as the paperwork was not completed by "Mark". Now I have to go back and see "Mark" to do this all over again....not happy and very disappointed with the level of professionalism.
Our family has had Dr Maley for 13 years. His staff are lovely especially his receptionist Liz. We are never kept waiting & he is down to earth when it comes to explaining things & when you actually need a prescription. His staff always tries to accommodate our needs ( everyone wants a dr appt the same day when they're ill). Dr Maley is a dedicated & kind hearted man. He goes above to stay late & arrange for a specific dr to meet us at another hospital outside Milton when an emergency arose. We've forever grateful he looks after our family.
