A True Blessing by E S. at InsiderPages
We met Dr. Maale in 1994 when my then 13 year old daughter was diagnosed with a chondrosarcoma/osteosarcoma. He scared me when he said she had cancer but said, Thank God he gave you this type of cancer because when I take it out it will be gone. Well, it was. She went through many tests to make sure there was just one place where the disease was and then 2 surgeries. The first was supposed to be the only one however the pathologist and Dr. Maale could not agree on the degree of the cancer so they closed and sent the biopsy to the Mayo Clinic for the determination of level of cancer. He did not want to do more surgery than was necessary to correct the problem. 2 weeks later the surgery was performed, a limb surgery where she needed bone grafts and physical therapy. She recovered well and has been cancer free for 13 years. Dr. Maale is a great person and great physician with a great staff. He is a hard person and expects a lot from his patients but has a caring heart underneath that face. He brought his son to the hospital on rounds when we were recovering. The down side is the fact he is so very very sought out and busy that the wait time is long in the waiting room and exam room. I very much like Presbyterian Hospital, their staff and all they did for us during this time. I was a single mother raising two children and the hospital recognized my needs stepping in to help us even though we had insurance coverage. A True Blessing-Dr. Maale, Kim, Bonnie and so many others along with Presbyterian Hospital. We thank you greatly again 13 years later.
