in New Hyde Park, NY |
My wife and I met with Doctor Mellinger a while ago for a reverse vesectomy. He was very up front with us and said that we did not have a 100% chance of success. Still, after understanding the failure rate, we went ahead. The procedure cost us close to $14k and was worth every penny. After a 3 hour surgery and some recovery time, we now have two healthy and happy children. I continue to see the dr even now and he's even helped me with my low T issues. Also, his office staff are fantastic!

I went on and did the surgery for sperm extraction 4 a IVF with my wife his price was $2500 for my procedure he found no sperm gave me no follow up phone call after surgery to tell me my results my wife Doctor did.6 months later with a 2nd opinion N a new doctor for $760 a lot of sperm was found N God willing once my wife eggs are ready our family shall begin #God is good #nevergiveup #secondopinon AMEN...

An excellent urologist who treated me for male infertility issues and low testosterone. Office staff is excellent and I was always seen within a few minutes of arriving to the office. I found Dr. Mellinger easy to talk to and he addressed all my questions and concerns throughout the process. In the end, he was successful in treating my infertility problem, which I initially thought would be untreatable. I would strongly recommend him.
Terrible bedside manner
