All the services I received with Dr.Melvin have been exceptional. Great bedside manor. I always felt comfortable in situations that normally you wouldn’t feel comfortable. Very professional and always knew he was genuinely concerned to get me better. I drive 1 1/2 hours one way just to use Dr.Melvin and will gladly continue to if any need arises in the future. I highly recommend him and his services.

Several years ago my daughter was at her very lowest point. She had been so sick for so long WITHOUT hope and then she discovered Doctor Melvin. He was/is the kindest Doctor we have ever met. He validated all of her concerns and addressed them in a very kind, caring and compassionate way. Thanks to Doctor Melvin’s expertises my daughter has been able to have a much better life. If you have lost hope, he may very well be able to help you too.

I think Dr. Willie Melvin is a wonderful caring doctor with such a great bedside manner. He always made me feel comfortable in everything we talked about needing to do. He explained it in laymen’s terms, helped me to understand, and made me comfortable with the procedure that needed to be done, did the surgery without a single ounce of doubt that this was going to put me on the road to recovery! AND IT DID JUST THAT! I feel wonderful. My pain is gone and I can eat anything I want, within reason. Thank you Dr. Melvin, from the bottom of my heart! Please fix this problem about abPIE!!!!
