Hands down the best endocrinologist, taking great care to evaluate additional symptoms that may not show up in bloodwork. Takes the time to answer all questions.

Thanks to Dr. Melnick's expertise in both the fields of fertility and encodrinology, I was able to get pregnant naturally at 44, avoid a miscarriage, and deliver a healthy baby girl. Unlike other endocrinologists that medicate you solely based on bloodwork, Dr. Melnick listens to your symptoms, medical history, and other personal information and takes a more tailored approach. He gave us hope and a baby where other doctors had basically told us to give up. Dr. Melnick understands the unique relationship between thyroid function and fertility function and will medicate you appropriately. We thank Dr. Melnick deeply for helping us achieve the family of our dreams.

While working with Aimee Raupp, she referred me to Dr. Melnick. She suspected that I had thyroid issues that needed to be treated to improve my fertility. After seeing Dr. Melnick, he confirmed the issue and promptly put me on medication and ran some fertility screenings. He was kind, open to talking, and fully supportive of my ability to get pregnant. After two months on the medication, we are expecting! This is in stark contrast to other doctors who without looking at my test results said I should immediately go for IVF given my age - telling my chances of getting pregnant are less than 2%! I was in tears after those visits. I am so thankful for Dr. Melnick!

Dr. Melnick is and always has been a caring, patient, and understanding doctor. He not only prescribes medication but is willing to listen to his patients in regards to their overall health. Doctors like that are very hard to find, which makes me grateful for having found him.

The best part of my experience with Dr. Melnick is his willingness to listen and discuss. He will discuss areas of health not directly related to the issue at hand and offer guidance which is very refreshing and helpful. Because at the end of the day all areas of the body work together. So when he ties two supposedly unrelated issues together it’s an ah-ha moment and things make more sense.

Dr Melnick is patient and understanding . He is also pragmatic and willing to work with patients on solutions they need. He is my endocrinologist but actually helped me detect ovarian polyps when I disclosed symptoms to him.

As I wrote before, Dr.Melnick is the best doctor that I have. He is quick to notice changes, take the right blood tests to find the right medication for me. If I call and say I don’t believe I have enough medication to make me me again, he gets me to come in immediately and we test to see what is wrong. He is the first doctor that I have gone to that doesn’t tell me it’s in my head! He understands women, hormones and thyroid, as well as in vitro, etc. he is the best!
