The service at Beacon once again has exceeded my expectations. Wait time to get into the exam room was only afew minutes. The time waiting for the preliminary/stats review was only a couple of minutes, this was followed almost immediately with the onsite imaging. Dr. Maldonado analytical approach to my evaluation and his diagnosis was simple to understand. He expressed himself with an intent to educate me on the cause of my issues and the treatment plan going forward. I would hesitate a minute to recommend him as a sports medicine specialist for my family and friends.

I was in the office for only a short time before I was taken back to go over symptoms. Dr. Maldonado came in shortly after imaging was taken and he was extremely helpful with coming up with a treatment plan toget me back up and going with my training. His sports medicine assistant was also extremely helpful going over the exercises I needed to do in order to recover properly.

I was so impressed with the facility located near Sharon Woods on East Kemper. It was very accessible and handicap friendly. I had my first appointment with Dr. Maldonado. They were professional and personable. They made it very easy to followthrough with care plan by doing same day X rays, scheduling next day diagnostics including MRI (Nicole did this for me immediately following the consultation based on my preference; I was given at least 6 time slots available over next 2 days including choice of larger MRI machine or regular sized machine). The radiology department was professional and efficient as well; ensuring my comfort and ease while body positioning. Dr. Maldonado had 2 health professionals to help prior to, during, and after his consultation. He is smart and kind as well. Thanks for reading.

I fought for years to figure out what was wrong with my daughters knees...test after test, bill after hefty bill...since she was about 12 years old. Other doctors (at Children’s Hospital) chalked it up to “growing pains”. Fast forward 4 years...stillthe same “growing pains”...and finally, by the grace of God, landed in the care of Dr. Maldonado who not only discovered the problem, but started executing a treatment plan right away. I also take my son to him now and Dr. Maldonado has never ceased to amaze me! He relates very well with his patients, has excellent bedside manner. I will refer him to anyone. He is amazing.

The first thing that Dr. Maldonado did was start explaining the X-rays to me. That made him top notch in my book! We discussed several treatment approaches. I got to pick first, then Dr Maldonado concurred. The staff was informative also.Everybody was congenial and willing to explain the diagnostics and their meanings. A good experience.
