Not the caring, understanding and professional individual you may be looking for

My experience with Dr. Melgar is never positive. She treated me like an ignorant for asking questions that's a first time mom I should have. She was not patient or understanding at all. The only reason I still go to this practice is because they are a group of 5 Drs and if you are pregnant they make sure you see all of them. I can't say enough about the other Doctors who are the complete opposite of Melgar. These Drs take the time to listen and explain things carefully so that you leave feeling confident with the answer. The staff is amazing except for Theresa who is one of the secretaries, very rude. Thanks Dr. Calluzzo, Herzog, Rothstain and Greenberg for being so caring and kind to your patients. I really hope that for my future babies one of you is on call

One Star

This is hands down one of the worst doctors I've ever been to in my life. Almost every doctor in this office is terrible.

The staff at this office is horrendous! Always a long wait time on the telephone and they are not the nicest people either. They are the forefront of the company so they should be a tad bit more professional .

Great Doctor. Wouldn't go anywhere else

I went to Dr Melgar after seeing another gyn for about 5 years. The difference was remarkable. I know doctors are busy and I had a lot of questions but she answered every one of them and still called me after the visit to go over my test results and reassure me. My previous doctor never took the time to do that. I haven't had a baby yet but when i do get pregnant I am hoping to have Dr Melgar deliver me. I can't imagine going anywhere else now.

Not a good place

I will never go too any of these Dr's at Bayside again. Dr. Melgar totally ignored me when i was trying to tell her i was suffering with perimenopause. I was 45 years old and she just kept saying no you're not, you're too young for menopause, while waving her hand at me walking out the room, because she seemed to be to BUSY to listen to or help a patient. Sure enough i was in perimenopause and now in menopause. She and the other DR's didn't know what to do with a women suffering with menopause. I don't know..maybe they are good if your pregnant. But i will NEVER GO to any of them again! I am still paying them off and they call me threatening to put me in collection thing for the money, instead of reminding me that i need an annual pap, mamo, gyno exam. So dissappointing to be ignored when you're suffering.

It took me a long time to find Dr. Melgar but I'm glad i did. I was unsure about the HPV vaccine. My precious doctor couldn't be bothered and just said if i didn't want it he wasn't going to try and convince me. Dr. Melgar took a lot of time to explain to me how it worked and what the real facts were. I wish someone else had done this for me sooner.

Not a fan

I cant speak about this doctors competence level but I can say that she is not someone I felt comfortable with at all. She barely answered my questions and actually seemed annoyed that I was asking questions. If you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant and you are looking for someone who is sensitive and caring, look elsewhere.
