Dr. Melki is a caring and thoughtful surgeon. I had cataract surgery and it was quick and painless. Prior to surgery and after surgery he made himself he available to answer all my questions and he responded to emails in a timely fashion. His team of attendees, nurses, anesthesiologist and office staff were also top notch.
