Me recomendaron al Doctor y acudi buscando una segunda opiniÃ³n, pues aunque ya estoy operada de ambas rodillas, continÃºo con un dolor que me limita mis actividades diarias y me mantiene muy triste. Me escuchÃ³ con mucha atenciÃ³n, me realizÃ³ placas, me observÃ³ caminando y me dio sus recomendaciones profesionales. El staff fue muy atento desde el momento mismo en que llamÃ© para obtener una cita. El tiempo de espera fue minimo. Me siento muy comlacida y recomiendo favorablemente al Dr MelÃ©ndez
