Dr Mel seems to be a very personable Dr to all his patients. He answers my questions with patience and I personally like the small town vibe he gives off. We were Lucky he chose us when he relocated. His staff is also top notch!

Dr. Melancon takes extra special care of all of his patients. The staff is very professional and attentive to their patients needs. The wait time in the waiting room is very reasonable.

Excellent Doctor, great sense of humor! Very knowledgeable.. I'm so glad I'm his patient.
in Berwick, LA |
Dr. Melancon shared too much personal information about how he had also taken the same medication he was prescribing for me. I found that unprofessional. He also has an arrogance that I caution patients against. If you question a medical decision he makes, he will cut the visit short and treat you differently. I had many questions that went unaddressed for that very reason. I'll not be back to see him.

Dr. Melancon is an outstanding physician, and an even more outstanding person. He is extremely knowledgeable and continues to stay on top of his game when it comes to medications. He is the type of doctor that you feel comfortable enough to let him know anything and can trust with anything. His staff is extremely personable and follow up on our well being. Dr. Melancon has helped my wife and myself with health issues both simple as well as going above and beyond on uncommon illnesses. Thank you!
