I've been going to Dr. Melgar for many years and have never had a bad experience. No matter what my appointment is for, if I'm feeling sick or just for a physical, I always leave laughing. He's always concerned about me and my family and is a very caring Doctor. Thank you Dr. Melgar and Staff!...more
