Review for Dr. Melnyk

Dr. Melnyk seems to care about his patients and their needs. On my last visit he put my mind at ease about an MRI I had a couple of weeks earlier. He takes time to answer my questions. I am a new patient of his...new since December. I am pleased with him.

Review for Dr. Melnyk

Dr. Melnyk is always kind, caring, and professional. He answers my questions directly and without making me feel like he's trying to rush me out the door. I have great confidence in his advice and guidance.
