What People Say About Dr. Melvin Yee, MD
Reply Flag
I always feel rushed through my appointments, Dr. Melvin Yee typically speeds through the details that I feel are important to my condition. Two of the past three times I have called the office to request a refill for my prescription, they neglected to send it to the pharmacy. (when they remembered, they sent it to the wrong location) To request refills, you must call during the office hours, and be lucky enough to have your call answered. Dr. Melvin Yee's office has no answering machine.
