Dr. Melan performed surgery on my father's neck several years ago and the outcome has been constant neuropathy in his hand. This is pain he now deals with every day. Present day, Dad starting having back pain and we returned to Melan but we have had very disappointing visits. Dr. Melan is arrogant and presents himself as impatient with no time to deal with your concerns. My father is 87 with early Alzheimers and Dr. Melan's disregard for his patients questions is not intolerable. We do not need a 'hand holding' doctor, but do require someone who respect his patients. His PA is great, and if you get to see Melan you may wish you had seen his PA. He was down right rude to my father and we will not be returning.
Dr. Melin is a fine doctor. However his staff is horrible. Not just bad, but rude, not helpful, and disorganized. They lost records, gave conflicting/confusing information, and overall did not know anything about the practice. I silently wondered if they were all temps and this was their first day at work. I do not recommend this place at all.
