Scheduled appointment:If my scheduled appointment is @10amTriage within 5-10 minI expect to see the Dr. within 15-20 mins.When you sit and wait over 2hours to see a doctor, means that the staff has poorly scheduled appointments and/or schedule patients 4 to 5 in a 10am window. which we all know, no one Dr. can see 4 paitents at once

 |  Grand daughter of Gerald's 96 year old patient  |  show details

Do not use this doctor Melvin Gerald. He is insensitive to the elderly. He is not responsive to any request be they urgent or routine. My grandmother died under his care and even though she was old he was less concern about her. She was in the Washington Nursing facility and we were concerned about damages to her body. When my mother spoke with him about it, his response was "she is old and dying". What kind of thing is that for a attending physician to say? I am glad it was my mom speaking to him and not me. My mom reminded him that we are are dying. He pronunced my grand mother dead on Saturday, July 17th and it is now Thursday, July 22, 2010 and we had the funeral planned for Friday, July 23 in NY and because of this doctor's incompetence and lack of concern for people we to this date do not have a signed death certificate to move the body and we had to change the funeral date. When he was contacted he told the undertaker that he was in NC and not due back to August 1, and he did not take any steps to get the death certificate signed. Pleazzzzzzzzz do not use him for you or your family members he is not worthy and God sees his lack of concern for others and will take vengence on Dr. Melvin Gerald.

We, as African-Americans are constantly asked to solicit businesses owned by those of our race as a show of support. Such is the case with this doctors' office.I'm sad to say that I have to agree, whole-heartedly with the other comment on this page.This o
