Dr. Melvin is one of the most compassionate, respectful, and knowledgeable surgeon I have ever met. He listened to me and fixed my stomach problem, which I have suffered from for a long time. Thank you Dr. Melvin! Also, I would like to thank his office staff; especially his medical assistant Gale. Again, Thank you for changing my life.

I started seeing Dr. Melvin over 10 years ago after being referred to him by a doctor from Cententennial and have been with him ever since. He is the most wonderful doctor in this area. We travel 3 hours from West Tennessee to see him. He has done 2 major surgeries on me and many minor surgeries. He is the best surgeon I have ever met and so kind and considerate to his patients and the families. Margaret Case, Adamsville, TN/West TN He is the best of the best!!!!

Dr. Melvin was able to fix my husband when no one else would see him. He took his time to explain things on the phone since I couldn't be at the appointment and made sure we understood as much about the operation as possible. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of an outstanding surgeon!

After several bad experiences, I finally found the Surgical Clinic and Dr. Melvin. He and his staff are awesome. The procedure he performed was a major lower abdominal repair. Dr. M educated me on what to expect and post-procedure has been excellent at helping with pain management and recovery. If you need any general surgery I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Melvin and his staff.

From my first consultation with Dr. Melvin I was overjoyed by his listening, concerned and caring demeanor. Once I explained all the ER/Hospital visits, he told me that HE was going to help me! He set up surgery to install a gastric pacemaker, and it has truly changed my life. I am no longer a regular in the ER or hospitals. I was so blessed to have had to opportunity to have met him. He will treat you with the respect and dignity that you deserve! Thank you Dr. Melvin, you are a Godsend.

It?s hard to explain how I feel after the ordeal of the ER 3 trips to the ER before I was admitted to the hospital hours of waiting .. But the wisdom of DR Melvin was outstanding. I feel like he saved my life because every other doctor in the ER had misdiagnose my issues. Thank you Dr Melvin you awesome

Dr. Melvin performed double hernia repair surgery on me. His initial exam was very thorough and his office staff was very helpful and friendly. Before and after the surgery he was very friendly to my family and made sure to comfort them as soon as my surgery was complete. I would highly recommend Dr. Melvin and his staff.

A week ago I ended up in the ER for an emergency appendectomy, Dr. Melvin was the most reassuring Dr. that I had for any operation. He is incredibly informative & caring for his patients. He had a way of making me feel like I was the most important person in the world. A week later and even at my follow up visit I experienced the same treatment. He is the most amazing Dr.that I could possibly ask for during my time of crisis. Amazing surgical skills, thank you so much Dr. Melvin.
