Dr. Maale is a brilliant surgeon and did an excellent job on the knee revision. He is knowledgeable and concientous. But he is always in a hurry and I usually leave thinking,,I meant to ask him something but he was in and out so quickly that there was no time, He is all business!

We met Dr Maale in 2011 was refured due to cancer by Dr Langer. Our thanks to both. when everyone else said they couldn't help Dr Maale not only did the operation but has kept him going. Only doctor I ever met that I could call his office say Im in California visiting family found another tumor landing at Dallas in two days. Come on in will work you in--did mri -scheduled operation and sent us home giving us another year so far .4-3-2015 We thank God every day for this doctor and his staff and pray God will continue to use him to save lives and give more people time with their families. With out God and Dr Maale I do not belive we would have had this four years.

Won't admitt mistake show details Won't admitt mistake
Mar 11th, 2015

I had a total knee operation some time back. A serious mistake was made during the operation. I recovered but am left with a serious problem. I tried to see him to talk about it and see what my options were. He denied that it occurred. He said, the Xrays say you are fine. I said just look at me, anyone can see I'm not fixed. He said, The xrays say you are fine so your fine and walked out, both times I came to talk with him. There was no yelling I just wanted to know what happened and what to do. I saw other Orthopedic Drs., all apologized for my problem. Both said he must have been in too big a hurry at the end of the day. One said, I can see no other explanation other than he forgot. I only wanted him to explain to me what happened and what I should do. He is very rude. I think he feels he can treat patients however he pleases because of the Texas State Tort Reform Laws. It is very hard to sue a Dr. in Texas, if you are retired, disabled, or otherwise not working. Lawyers say if they can't add loss of wages to their formula, its not worth it to them to sue. It is to me, I'm left with a permanent disability, but that doesn't matter to them. When Lawyers can't and don't police our Drs. then no one does! They darn sure don't police themselves. ,,Then Drs. like Dr Maale can treat you how they will, mistakes and all, and are not worried about the consequences. I'm sure he has his good days as evidenced by some of the other comments here. But he has some very bad days too and those are the ones you have to worry about. So, if you're a Gambler,... well then.. Good Luck.

Gave me my life back! show details Gave me my life back!
by Sonja on Mar 3rd, 2014

Dr. Maale studies each case before he accepts each patient. When he accepted me, I was so sick! MRSA had invaded my right knee replacement. I figured he would recommend surgery right away. He got an infection specialist on board to get the infection localized to the metal only, and I felt much better. He did a one stage revision with the most amazing knee. It will not dislocate! I should know. It has turned 180 degrees and my husband had to put it back. I am out living life again! I am doing Zumba, yogalates, preparing to walk a 5 K, did a fitness Bootcamp, and am going to try spin class next. I am swimming for time and working out 5 days a week! I weighed 435 pounds at one point, now I am down to 263.2 and going down! I love living and being active again! I changed the way I eat and I feel like a million bucks! Thank you Dr. Maale! You are one in a million!!!

He saved my life show details He saved my life
by Tamara T on Oct 22nd, 2013

In 1996 at the age of 16 I was diagnosed with a Ewing Sarcoma in my left femur. I had been to "specialist" in Oklahoma and told it was a sports injury 6 months prior to meeting Dr. Maale, when the doctor in Oklahoma finally found the cancer it had spread and consumed most of my femur and all of my knee. They informed me of the cancer and then explained that I was terminal and they needed to amputate my left leg and start treatments to try to "prolong" my life. Two weeks later I was introduced to Dr. Maale and he gave me hope that I would survive and save my leg. In December after almost 5 months of chemo of 1996 I received a total knee replacement along with a femur transplant, a little more than a year later I was released cancer free. Dr. Maale saved my life.

Horrible patient experience show details Horrible patient experience

Went twice and waited longer than 2hrs each time only to see Dr. maale for all of 3 minutes before he ran out of the room without me getting a chance to ask him any questions. He is very rude and has a serious "God Complex". Considers himself the #1 Sarcoma doctor in the world and loves to bad mouth MD Anderson. Save yourself the stress and agitation of seeing this doctor and go somewhere else.

terrific at his field. Just do not expect any hand holding. VERY little time explaining problem and no bedside manner. I recommend taking a note pad. If you are lucky you will get thru some of your questions.
