Independence, LA |
Dr Melcher has helped me cope with issues .... his professionalism, knowledge and care are a huge comfort in my fight for health.
in Metairie |
I had been suffering from periods of dizziness and passing out. No one could figure out what was wrong but when Dr. Melcher got involved he discovered the problem and the solution. This had been going on for several months and he got it done quickly. Wonderful doctor and spends much time with me on every visit to make sure I understand everything completely.

This doctor is the reason I am alive today. His diagnosis of G.B.S and placing me in ICU saved my life.
Thank you Lawrence L.

Lacks self confidence and is very unsure about himself. He lacks the ability to explain himself effectively to his patients.
In responce to Karen D's review, I reviewed all patients seen by my group in the office since 2011. I have not seen a patient named Karen D. I have been practicing neurology for 24 years and pride myself in being very confident in practicing the art of medicine, in taking a detailed history and conducting a detailed neurologic examination, and in explaining my impression and plan of care to all patients. I never rush my patients. I am on the list of Best Doctors in New Orleans and in Louisiana.
