Exceptional doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Melancon. She is very intelligent, compassionate and always makes you feel comfortable. I wouldn't trust any other doctor with my kids except. her.

Very invested in my children's wellbeing. All of my concerns, no matter how crazy, are always addressed in a caring manner. She always remembers my kids which is very comforting. Can not say enough good things about her and her staff.

Dr Melancon has seen my daughter since she was released from the NICU. From our initial appointment she put me at ease and took the time to answer our questions, she continues to do so. My daughter is now 9 months old and has special needs that necessitate frequent visits to specialists out of state. Dr Melancon and her staff do an AMAZING job of managing our daughter's care. I trust Dr Melancon and all the doctors and staff at her office. Highly Recommended!

Dr. Melancon has been my daughter's pediatrician for two months now. Since day one when I brought my newborn for her very first check up, Dr. Melancon has been very attentive and really listened, she answers any questions I have even for she has already addressed them. Me being a first time mom and a nervous one at that I screened three other doctors before I knew she was the one. She made sure I understood each thing she said to and never rushed to etc out of the room.

Dr. Melancon is amazing! So gentle and caring with her patients and goes above and beyond for them all! Most importantly, she speaks to both parent and child! She tells we the parents what we need to know and how to set us at ease, and she can speak to the children in a way that comforts and soothes them. Just awesome! Love her and the entire staff!

Had a great experience with Dr. Melancon. Was my son's first pediatrician before we moved away. She always spent a lot of time with us discussing any concerns or questions we had. I would highly recommend her.

Love Dr. Elizabeth! !!
We love Dr. Melancon! When choosing a pediatrician for my newborn, I did so much research and read so many reviews and finally decided on her. And I'm so happy I did! She is always cheerful and informative. And she always takes the time to hear us out, even when it's monotaneous, first-time parent paranoia. I love that she takes cost into consideration and recommends all natural products. All in all, she is very informative and has excellent bedside manner.
