Willows, CA |
Dr. Mellum is kind & sincere. He is a good Dr. He's knowledgeable & willing to explain anything. With that being said, you do need to verbalize your questions. He'll tell you what you need to know, but will not elaborate unless you ask the question. Can be difficult to reschedule appts. Set up...more
