What People Say About Dr. Melissa Leyva-Vega, MD

DO NOT go to this doctor! She is a complete waste of time, does not respect her patients time and diagnosis wrong. Will not renew medication, because she needs to see you in the office every time- very money minded. We had a HORRIBLE experience and DO NOT recommend her at all.
