I had been seeing Dr. Keith melancon since 2012 an I respected this Dr an bragged an referred several people to him, I even brought my precious granddaughter to him for a second opinion, that's how much I respected this man's opinion. My last visit I honestly can say was a total nightmare, I have never seen him in this manor. After I consultanted with him on a problem I have he did a 100 degree turn, he informed me he wasn't going to see me anymore an advised me to find another Dr. I was so hurt

VERY PERSONABLE,PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE, PATIENT AND THE BEST DOCTOR OUT OF ABOUT 50 DOCTORS I SEE. I WAS DIAGNOSED ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO FROM A FOOT SPECIALIST, WITH A DEBILITATING, DANGEROUS, LIFE THREATENING DISEASE. THE NEXT STEP IS AMPUTATION AND/OR DEATH. MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN GOING TO DR. MELACON SINCE HE STARTED HIS PRACTICE. I JUST GOT THROUGH WITH MY FIRST WITH HIM. HE LOOKED AT THE PREVIOUS X-RAY'S, MRI'S, TOOK NEW ONES, AND REASSURED ME, NO I DON'T HAVE THAT DISEA
