One Star

my experience with her, was very upsetting The first few visits, were really not too bad As I was a new patient, and of course You need to build a working relationship Then I noticed that she would become abrupt, rude at times It hurt my feelings But I chalked it up to a bad day We all have them My last visit, I have never felt so horrible leaving a doctors office She was rude , abrupt, condescending I left feeling like I did something wrong She seemed irritated Seriously , I am 67 I don't feel like it is professional Or indeed ethical to treat another human being that way I'm sure she gets people she may not particularly like But I'm a human being. I am also a nurse I know it's tough But I will never go back

Exceptional care

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Maher for several years. Her staff is outstanding and responsive to requests, appointments, medication refills, etc. Dr. Maher always spends time to examine and then explain each and every medical issue brought to her attention. I believe she is an exceptional doctor! I would and have recommended her to my family and friends.

Five Stars

I have been a patient of Dr Maher for many years. She and her office staff have been nothing but professional, caring and kind. I've never had any problems booking an appointment or had to wait more than 20 minutes to see her. Dr Maher has always been very informative and always direct with my treatment. I have never left her office without feeling that she took time with me, she cares about my health and only wants the best for me. I'm very happy with my doctor and wouldn't change for anything

Wonderful Doctor

My doctor remembers me between appts. From time to time she checks up on me just to see how I'm doing. Once she heard from my sister that I hadn't been feeling well and she called to come in that evening to see her. Does your doctor do that? You need a new doctor!
