What a great doctor! I visited the doctor because I have anxiety issues. He was very polite kind and listen very well. He was also very helpful in prescribing me medication that helped so much! I definitely will be going back to visit. I recommended him to my whole family And all my friends. It is hard to find a great doctor that will listen and being so helpful.

Worst office staff ever with totally indifferent practitioners. I have been calling for a month about a preauthorization and they always tell me the office manager isn't in or they already submitted it. It turns out they lied about submitting the preauthorization - the insurance company has no record at all! When I go there I see many patients sicker than me and I shudder to think how they survive this indifferent doctor and his incompetent staff.

This is a very smart doctor who knows a lot about the brain. However, he is also cruel and lacks understanding of mental illness on a human level. I do not recommend taking children to him because he is critical and lacks understanding. Will never go back to him.

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!
