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...more

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.
