Very pleased with my experience as a new patient of Dr. Meltelka. Was super knowledgeable about women's conditions and explained in detail with layman's language. Great bedside manner. Did not feel "rushed through" at all. Would certainly recommend this gynecologist to anyone.

I absolutely love Dr. Matelka. Wonderful birth experience and very compassionate and understanding. He is professional, skilled, great bedside manner. Extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to take care of his patient (me). I had to have an emergent surgery later on and was relieved that he was the surgeon on call.

My wife said she wanted to have a natural child birth without epidural intervention. She understood that it was an option if necessary. Dr. Metelka treated her like she was naive and scoffed at the idea of natural child birth. Thankfully, he wasn't on duty on the day of delivery. My wife went forward with her plan of natural delivery which was the first seen by the nurses on staff that day.
