Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Melnick, treated me and members of my family more than once. Each time it was a good experience. He typically spends time needed for making well-informed diagnosis and/or proper procedure, while I've never felt rushed. In many cases second visit wasn't required. Dr. Melnick is polite and straight-forward with his patients. I've recommended Dr. Melnick to many people and I would highly recommend him here to anyone reading this.

My experience with Dr. Melnick was a life changing experience. It's a perfect experience. It's how every doctor visit should be for anyone. He will tell you everything that's going on with you. Where other doctors will say nothing and won't care for evaluating you completely. I believe from the greatness of his heart that he cares for his patients and gives them a thorough, precise and professional description of what's really going on. Answers all questions. The best doc ever!

I worked with Dr Melnick for 16 yrs, he is a great diagnostic doctor. Dr Melnick, has many specialties, and is professional at all times. I don’t know why there are a couple of one star reviews, but maybe they were looking for something they didn’t need. Dr Melnick is my family doctor and my daughter also goes to him. He has years of experience and you are in good hands with him. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Melnick is unprofessional, rude, careless. He didn’t even listen to the main reasons why I was at the UC. I started off telling him how I had the flu but am over it now and then he interrupted me. He gave me an unneccesary flu swab, but no CXR to r/o pneumonia for my sharp chest pain & breathing trouble. He did not even listen to my heart. He raised his voice and told me I wasted his time and cost of materials for my flu check. He prescribed me an abx & poss serious ADR to another med I take

Dr melnik kicked me out of his office after I asked him why he said and i quote, " i don't have time to look at your medical history". I was in search of a new primary Dr strictly because my childhood dr stopped accepting my medical insurance. I am an extremely depressed person with high anxiety .i left this office crying and in pain and 10 times worse off mentally than when i walked in. if anything will trigger a mentality ill person that type of treatment will

He insisted I take a medication that made me very ill. I ended in the ER twice and the doctors told me to stop the medication and find another PCP. Even my surgeon told me the same thing. I found that Melnick lied to the ER about my medical history when he hadn't even consulted with my doctors where I lived prior to moving to RI. He insisted he knew what he was doing because he managed his own pain, something a doctor should never do. I would never recommend him to anyone.
