in Northford CT |
I was referred to Dr. Melendez from my orthopedic surgeon with an open wound on my leg. I drove 40 minutes ,multiple times, to get to his closest office and it was worth every mile. Dr Melendez discussed every option for my healing process and truly listened to all my questions and concerns. He respected my decision for which option I wanted and immediately started the healing process. I'm extremely pleased with the end result and how I was treated by him and his entire staff.

I feel truly lucky to have been referred to Dr. Melendez. He took over an hour with me and my husband while we were interviewing plastic surgeons. I had a double mastectomy with expanders in Jan 2017 at Griffin Hospital (which was also amazing). I am still currently going thru the expansion process, and have total confidence in Dr. Melendez and his team. It is not an easy decision to make, but having him and his staff in my corner, I truly feel better and stronger already.

Dr. Mark Melendez is an INCREDIBLE plastic surgeon whose work is METICULOUS! He is also the most compassionate one I've ever met!!! He is sincere, cares about his patients and his work is clean and concise. Dr. Melendez gave me hope again. I had breast cancer, a double mastectomy and began the reconstruction process with a different plastic surgeon who truly didn't know what she was doing. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Melendez and only wish I found him first!!! He is by far the best around!!!!

Dr. Melendez is amazing! He is so kind and personable and dedicated to his job and patients. He makes you feel comfortable and you know the minute that you decide to be his patient you are in good hands. Dr. Melendez completed several procedures on me as far as a bilateral Breast reconstruction as well as expander a and a final diep flap surgery, and a revision surgery most recently which I am all pleased with. You can call him at any time with any concern you have and he always there to answer.
