Patient Comments (1)
in LADOGA, IN |
Dr Melbert is a compassionate man and to me that makes him an excellent Doctor. He carved the cancer out of my rectum and gave me a temporary ileostomy, during one of the worst times of my life. He was honest genuine and didn't beat around the bush when we talked about the road ahead of me after the initial surgery. The staff at St Francsis Indianapolis and Mooresville have been awesome! Helpful when I had question after the surgery, with the Ostomy and living with new bowel habits after cancer!
