Dr Melis is thorough in the respect of getting to know your history and is nice. He has an excellent bed side manner and listens to your concerns. Initially I visited with Dr Melis when he was affiliated with Dr Cosmatos in Astoria.

Need new contact info

Dr. Melis is a great doctor. But he left the Mt. Sinai Queens practice and it would be nice to find him again. Dr. Melis, if you're reading this, please post your new contact info :-)
