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!

He is not bothered of any of our concerns. His way of diagnosis is very strange. I don't recommend this doctor to anybody.
