Horrific. 1st visit I was handed 2 bags of samples to start taking, with not enough information. One made so sick I lost a day of work (no call back from Dr.). 2nd visit she could not remember all samples she gave me. Suspicious I brought them all to pharmacy. They were aghast I was not given a glucose monitor and told me I was in danger of becoming hypoglycemic without monitoring. Then they asked if I was given something to protect my liver. Answer was NO. New Doc told me to toss it.

Dr.Sunny Melendez is the best and most thorough doctor I have ever been treated by. She is extremely knowledgeable and doesn't miss a thing. I have been a patient of Dr. Melendez for over 13 years, and there is no other medical professional who I trust more. The staff are all friendly and professional. I am also a patient of her husband's for Sleep Apnea. I have never felt rushed or left with unanswered questions. I would highly recommend both Sunny and Ron Melendez, MDs.
