Dr. Maish was my angel in the emergency room. I was in severe pain and very scared. When she came in the room she assured me that she would help me but most of all she showed me such kindness and compassion more than any other medical professional that I've ever experienced and I've been in the medical field for 35 years. Thank you for your kindness and dedication to your patients.

I had seen seven different doctors for severe chest pain which radiated into my back, and finally narrowed it down to a damaged xiphoid process. Dr. Maish was willing to quickly surgically remove it, and after six months of pain, am finally seeing daily improvement! She is beyond wonderful - I practically owe her my life. The pain was debilitating, and demoralizing.
