Bad Doctor! Arrogant! All he cared about was making money. Didn't care about my problem. Wanted to put me on CPAP when it didn't work for me. Wanted me to use his Medical Equipment Company when my Insurance Company doesn't work that way. You have to use their Medical Equipment Company. ...more

He's your typical arrogant know-it-all doctor. He wouldn't listen to a thing I said and was not helpful in diagnosing my condition. I would avoid him at all costs.

Not worth going to him. Didn’t help or explain dx. Didn’t stay to even answer questions. Spent less than 30 seconds in exam room. Felt like my dx and my concerns were of no importance.

He wrote on a slip of paper what he thought my issue was and then told me I could "Google" it.

Dr. Melder helped determine what I had right away. I have been through various doctors who felt I had sleep apnea when in fact he was able to see i did not.
