We don't recommend this doctor to anyone. He is not ready to listen parents concerns. He is least bothered about missing milestones. He has very less knowledge about developmental delays. Very much disappointing.

Dr. Melekote has been immensely helpful with our daughter and her food allergies. I love the staff in his office and his nurses are wonderful. Dr. Melekote is very soft spoken and seems aloof, but no matter what/how many questions myself or my husband has had, Dr. Melekote always takes the time to listen and answer all of them.

My twins were born 5 weeks premature, & I had no pediatrician in mind. Dr. Melekote was recommended to me by the birthing center at Manchester Memorial Hospital and has been their pediatrician since birth. They are now over six years old happy healthy and striving children with much thanks to Dr. Melekote and his amazing staff! I highly recommend him and his practice to anyone looking for an amazing pediatrician!

My only best experience with a MD in this State!!!!!!!! I don't get the poor reviews...... I feel my kids are safe with them. They DO listen to your concerns. I would recommend this doc to anyone that does not see disesases or problems in everything!!!!!!
He is not bothered of any of our concerns. His way of diagnosis is very strange. I don't recommend this doctor to anybody.
Worst experience ! Please change your doctor.

Worst staff nurse they are rude with the kids and doctor doesn't care or listen to what you say. Avoid them.
