Patient Comments (1)
Chicago IL |
I went to see Dr. Melen with a family member. Dr. Melen was quarrelsome, he interrupts constantly, he does not listen well, he appeared to be confused by basic arithmetic involving dates and did not seem to believe that there were any treatment options for vision problems resulting from concussion. He may be an expert in his field, but that was not at all apparent. His attempts to encourage a positive attitude were so ham-fisted that it was hard to credit him with any sincerity at all.
