I visited Dr. Durante in Stuart and he sent me directly to Dr. Melgen after discovering I had a detached retina. Dr. Melgen told him to send me down immediately so he could see me. Long story short, short wait time, great staff and the friendliest doctor I have ever met in my life. with a 10 minute procedure that I didn't feel anything, I was in my car and headed home. Dr. Melgen, you're the greatest.
Thank you so much for sharing your story and for your kind words!
