Patient Comments (7)
Gulfport, MS |
Did not follow through with referral as he discussed in his 2 miniutes meeting with patient. Did nothing but have a person in severe pain sit in a chair for 2 hours while waiting for office visit with him. I am sure his billing will not indicate the lack of medical care he failed to provide. His answering service stated no way to page, text, email or contact. Completely do not believe what I was told and completely disappointed.

As an individual he presents him self as kind , very courteous , and just an good honest all around caring person. I selected him to do my brain surgery over other Dr.'S in his office. The results far exceeded the general expations of a positive out come. I can honestly say I live because of Gods grace and Dr. Melgar developed skills. The only issue for me is his office ,at best it a mess. The Dr. can only do so much;deeply depends upon his office staff. Office needs a lot of help.

Dr. Melgar has great bedside manner, he was always kind. He explained everything to me to where I could understand what was going to happen.

Have been more than happy with Dr. Melgar with his knowledge and caring .
in Biloxi, MS |
Inordinately long wait in the Office, nearly 2 hours beyond my appointment time. He was rushed, cut me off when I asked questions and I left the office feeling ignored, I asked to be referred to another Neurosurgeon. He did review my films and referred me to Pain Management for further diagnostic workup. THAT was very helpful

Dr. Melgar gave me the feeling that I was his one and only patient. He explained every single step to me until the lightbulb went on. He was extremely benevolent and patient with me.

Dr. Miguel Melgar literally saved my life! I was sent to him by Workman's Comp. after being injured at work. Not only did he discover 8 bad disk , that were injured. He found that I had a Abominable Aortic Aneurysm , which he had fixed . He did the surgery to 3 disc in my neck and I was immediately relived of the pain in my arm. I also was able to use my arm and feel my fingers again. I still have 2 more surgeries to go on my back and Dr. Melgar's going to do them. I can';t say praise this man e
