I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Melnick while reading an article he wrote on the "Hypothyroid Mom" site. I've been looking for a doctor knowledgable in the correct way to take/dose natural dessicated thyroid medication. Not only is he an expert on the topic, he's also kind, open-minded and truly listens. He listens to your symptoms as opposed to relying solely on lab results, as so many doctors do. His staff does blood work and thyroid sonograms in the office, if needed; also a plus.

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Melnick. Dr Melnick accurately diagnosed me with hypothryroidism in June 2017. Dr Melnick prescribed nature throid and since I have been taken this tablet once a day I no longer have depression. My energy levels have improved immensly. I am able to do jobs that I could not do before such as power hosing, painting, mowing lawn etc.. Before I would be fatigued with muscle pain. As a result Dr.Melnick has enhanced my life and made a difference. Grateful xx

Dr. Melnick is a truly dedicated, empathetic and brilliant doctor who will take whatever time one needs to get to the root of a problem - and solve it. I have been going to him for almost 10 years. He has tirelessly worked with me to improve my health and as a result, overall quality of life. I have referred over half a dozen clients to him who are all deeply grateful for his expertise. Other doctors prescribe antidepressants as a catch-all - Dr Melnick actually CURES underlying problems.

During my initial consultation with Dr. Melnick, I found him to be extremely knowledge in his field of expertise. He was quiet spoken and answered all of my partner's and my questions. Several weeks ago, I returned to Advanced Fertility for a procedure and again was treated with the upmost professionalism and courtesy. I highly recommended Dr. Melnick and the Advanced Fertility Clinic!
