After 4 losses in the past, Dr. Melone was the only doctor who recommended cerclage for my high risk pregnancy. She performed the surgery at 14 weeks and a few months later I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl! I highly believe that it was because of Dr. Melone that I am blessed with being a mom! <3 I will always go back to her and recommend her a million times! She is compassionate and she cares deeply for her patients! Love her!

From early on my husband and I knew the pregnancy wasn't going as smooth as we would've hoped. Without providing and oversharing details, we are preparing ourselves for the worst. This review isn't about what we are going through, but about our experience with Dr. Melone. We saw her for a 2nd opinion and even though she wasn't able to share any good news with us, we believe she was/is by far the best doctor we could've seen. Her approach, bedside manners and knowledge are all undeniable.

Dr. Melone is a leading surgeon in the field of accreta. I am certain she saved my life, as she helped to deliver my son, manage my blood loss and remove a defective placenta from my internal organs. She is straight forward with her diagnosis, but she is also extremely thorough and caring and when faced with a life threatening condition, there was not a single moment that I doubted her abilities. She is amazing as a person and a doctor.
