Not a chance! Accept new pt because he has killed all the others

Murdered my sister by perforation of lilac artery. Stood by and watched her died- lied to family why. Would not recommend for an earthworm to visit.Very uneducated on emergency procedures.

Dr. Melton is not fancy, he is just a terrific vascular surgeon. He quickly diagnosed my problem and scheduled me for carotid artery surgery, which was expertly done, in fact his diagnosis and surgery saved my life, plain and simple. A friend referred him to me by name, and described him as "the best." So all I can add is a hearty AMEN!
