Chula Vista, CA |
At my first and last appointment with Dr Melden in the Fall of 2012, he was rude, disrespectful, arrogant, condescending, and displayed no compassion. I actually left feeling worse than when I walked in. With such an abrasive personality like his, why did he ever bother becoming a psychiatrist in the first place? He should have become a pathologist instead, as it would have be a better fit for his personality. I strongly recommend NOT going to him or anyone in his group at Crownview Medical.

Brought an under age family member to see Dr. Meldon for help with anxiety and depression. He prescribed 2 medications. My family member is now having some pretty serious and scary side effects and this Dr will not call me back! When I asked his staff why he left without calling me back I was told that He sees patients all day long and when he's done he's done. He dosent want to have to make calls too. Seriously???? This guy is one to stay away from!
Terrible. It impossible to reach him, to make appointments with him , and when your depressed and suicidal I wouldn't recommend this.
