Did not check my knee and ankle that I injured. Rather dismissive and said to take IBUPROFEN for two weeks. Right after leaving the Doctor's office, I scheduled another appointment with a doctor from the same group who has taken great care of me in the past.

I am very thankful I made an appointment with Dr. Melander. I had been suffering with compartment syndrome in my left lower leg for 7 years. It had gone undiagnosed for all that time. I was having a hard time with walking. Dr. Melander diagnosed me and performed surgery all within the same month. His team is amazing. Everyone is professional and very dedicated. I had surgery 2 weeks ago and my walking has greatly improved. I am very excited and thankful for my experience. :)

Rude and pretentious. Spent only five minutes in the room. Rushed through the exam. I am neat and clean with good hygiene. I take care to dress appropriately and am polite and patient with people. I have very good insurance and there will be no problem with him getting paid. He did not seem to care nor did he act like he wanted to answer the few questions I tried to ask him. When I raised my concerns he talked over me (at a volume sure to drowned out anything further I might have said) and avoided answering my questions about my broken bone. The rest of the staff were very helpful, kind and compassionate. Maybe Dr. Melander was having a bad day, but if that was the case it does not excuse his unprofessional behavior. I have a follow-up appointment in a couple of weeks. I will keep the appointment as I am interested to see if this is how he always behaves.

Dr Melander did a fantastic job on my knee. I tore the medial and lateral meniscus and many times such an injury ends tennis careers. His excellent surgery as well as diligent coaching on rehabilitation has enabled me to play tennis at a very competitive level at 48. We trust our entire family to him and appreciate his skill and expertise.

I started seeing Dr Melander after back surgery for serious central canal stenosis. While the surgery was a success, the treating doc could not help me recover from VERY TROUBLING residual musculoskeletal issues. Referred to Dr. Melander by my PCP, he has treateded my problems with GREAT SUCCESS! With Dr. Melander’s reassurance, and medical treatments, I worked through my difficulties and now my “active” life is restored to me. YAY! Doc is thorough, concerned, and kind. Important qualities!
