Dr. Mark Melrose has the following 2 specialties
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I had foot surgery and was taking the required antibiotic for 8 days. There was pain and redness, which family member told me is infection. This was 5pm Friday night. Surgeon returned my call 2 hours later and said to go to ER to get new antibiotic, based on my symptoms. I dreaded going to ER and spending 3-5 hours waiting, and surgeon said it was fine to go to a pre-ER place, and I tried out Urgent Care Manahttan and was treated by Dr. Melrose. He was excellent. He examined me, explained why he was prescribing the new antibiotic, gave me lots of info, gave me a pill to take right away, and it all cost $150, which I can submit to ins. for reimbursement. Foot began to improve several hours later. His office called me 2 days later to inquire. I had a question and they put him on the phone. This is a great place, and I would recommend them highly.
I love this clinic and Drs. Melrose and Shipley. I have never had to wait, the doctors and staff are friendly and efficient. I can literally be in and out in 15 minutes feeling that I have been listened to and my needs have been met. The next day, the office always follows up with a call to make sure you are all right. The office has now started to take Medicare and I am dropping my regular physician at whose office an hour wait is the norm and you have to schedule an appointment weeks in advance.
