It was the worst cervical biopsy!! I read that it's not supposed to be painful and it was very painful, torturous/horrible. I had to ask him to stop after I felt like he was stabbing my cervix repeatedly. Not to mention the dumb remarks he was making. I was crying and in shock. I mentioned it to the supervisor , lisa, and nothing was done. NEVER AGAIN!!! 1st and last time with him and Male dr.s

I am a physician myself and when I was new to San Antonio, my health took a dangerous turn and I required an urgent hysterectomy, I found Dr. Dandan in a hurry. I can say without a doubt that he has my highest recommendation. My case was not a simple one and he handled it (and me, as a new patient) with the utmost competence and grace. I have since referred others to his care. If you are looking for an excellent OB-GYN who is also patient and respectful, Melhem Dandan is your doctor.

This doctor somehow missed 3 large fibroids and put down my irregular cylce to thyroid issues. Nurse was rude and not sure if she spoke much English.
