About Us

Dr. Malone's Office Welcomes You!

My Philosophy of Care

For over 20 years of medical practice I have found that the one thing my patients desire most is staying well. Nearly everyone that we see has been sick for so long or so frequently that it is substantially interfering with normal everyday life. People are tired of being sick and having to go to the doctor over and over. They are tired of taking medications that only give temporary relief before they are sick all over again. This is where we come in. Our practice is designed almost completely around prevention. Our goal is to try and determine as accurately as possible the underlying causes of your medical conditions and treat these instead of just giving you short-term relief.

Nearly every medical condition has at its core some alteration or dysfunction of the immune system. 25 years ago the field of immunology was in its infancy, now it has become the single most important field of medicine since all medical disciplines are finding the immune system is the key to most of their disease processes. Though all physicians now have some training in the immune system only the specialty of Allergy/Immunology trains its physicians so that their foundation for care is the immune system. It is only in this field of medicine that its physicians are designated as Immunologists. I use the extensive training that I have in this field to determine why people have the medical problems they have and then work to transform their underlying tendencies back toward normal function and wellness. This is done through a variety of techniques including alteration of the environment, change in lifestyle or diet and a variety of therapeutic treatments through allopathic (traditional medicine) and naturopathic (based on nature) treatments while still working to make therapy affordable and safe.

As a consultant I will not be able to provide all medical care for you or your child in the future because of the demand for me to help other people determine the causes of their medical problems. Our commitment to you is to work with you over time to get your problem under such good control that when there are flare ups few physician visits as possible. I employ two nurse practitioners, Dwight Polivka and Kim Gray. Dwight and Kim see patients for me who need to come back to determine how therapy is working, who need routine follow up for chronic conditions like asthma and severe allergies and when people need more acute care if he has an open slot. Since we may not always have the ability to see patients for acute illnesses because we ask that you always try to see. For this reason we try to keep your primary care physician up to date with our findings so they may help more appropriately when episodes of illness inevitably occur in the future; however, the most important caregiver in the future will be you. Our goal is to equip you to be the best provider of your own medical care. The better you understand your own or child’s medical condition the better you will be in the future to care for yourself both through prevention care and when acutely sick.
