Very caring Dr. Beware that their lab for blood work may not be covered by your insurance. That was the case with my husband. SHE did over a 1000 dollar's worth. We would have went some where else for blood work if we had known

I've been a Patient of Dr Gwenesta Melton for many many years! She's been a lifesaver for me. I'd have less of a quality of life if it wasn't for her! Compared to other Dr offices as a whole the wait time is so very minimal. I know if we have to wait longer than normal at her office w/a scheduled appointment, it's because she truly has a patient emergency they're taking care of. I'd hope that if I came in & she found I had a medical emergency she would give me the time I need as well. God Bless
