Altadena, CA |
Dr. Mello was highly recommended by my PCP. I had been to 2 other gastroenterologists but they couldn't help me . Dr. Mello diagnosed my swallowing problem in one visit. The endoscopy was painless. I apparently have an allergy in my esophagus and the medicine is working well. . Dr. Mello is an excellent doctor!

Dr. Melo is very much money driven doctor mostly focus on how much more he can make ? Very snob and does not have any bedside manner, I advice you to look for another GI doctor , there are many good GI doctors in Glendale and LA

Dr. Mello and staff were everything one would expect from a doctor/office...courteous, respectful and professional...

1 - I was not able to see dr. mello at office , only meet dr. mello at community surgery center, same time as at surgery room, which was too many people waiting for as well, at that place only he said his name and walk away. 2- Also i belive that provider is not much trustable..
