in Vanceburg, KY |
I would definitely NOT recommend him for anything. He did a wipple procedure on me in December of 2013 and I still am trying to recouperate in 2016. He did not ever see me again after the surgery was performed. He must have thought I would not live to tell what he did. I never saw him after the operating room. I had to have five more major surgeries to fix his mistakes and still have too many problems to mention. I cannot rate him for the chart does not do a minus.

In 2000 Dr Melvin perfomed gastric bypass surgery on me. I was over 400 pounds. Today Some 16 years later I still have lost over half my body weight. Dr Scott Melvin is amazing. I love his personality and the way he treated me was better than any other Dr. Thank you Dr Melvin.
