Dr. Mele is an excellent doctor & a honest, trustworthy, supportive, understanding & kind person. From the very beginning I got a really good vibe from him. Though the procedure was more than what I really wanted to pay, I would do it again with him as my doctor. The quality of care is amazing. It means a lot to me to be able to ask questions and have someone explain it to me and not treat me like a nuisance or like they don?t have time for me.
