The wait was a little daunting, however it was well worth it! This is a very thorough, thoughtful and experienced physician. Her expertise in cardiology is considerable, and she took a tremendous amount of time to make sure all bases werecovered for something which might have been a serious condition. The staff is very friendly and professional and the new offices are pristine. Plan ahead, be patient.

I arrived early and was immediately taken in to see Dr. Mellow. I have no idea why I've seen other patients complaining of wait time. Dr. Mellow is personable, highly professional, and put me at ease. I am new to NewYork and was relieved to find this level of care.

Dr. Mellow saw my wife and me on short notice, with no medical information available beforehand. The entire process was welcoming, thorough and decidedly professional. Anticipating further visits and consultation.

Today was their first day in their new office and they were not even a little bit prepared. The front staff was arguing with others because nobody was listening or following any type of procedure. They had no air conditioning atall on top of it. My appointment was at 2:30, I arrived at 2 and I wasn’t seen until almost 3:45 when there was only 3 other people in the waiting room with me. When I got back into the room, they spent 10 minutes looking for the equipment they needed to check on me. Worst experience of my life ever at a doctor.

I waited over an hour for my appointment and the reception desk wasn't remotely apologetic. They couldn't even give me an answer on how much longer the wait might be.

The front desk staff is a little loud and unprofessional. The wait time was way too long, unfortunately if you want a doctor who is thorough then you will expect a long wait time. Dr. Mellow is very knowledgeable and addressed my concerns. I would recommend her.

Dr Mellow is very personal and have great bed manners. However, because the office is moving, they can’t find my medical record and I waited for an hour and 20 minutes for my early morning appointment (with an empty stomach because I need to fasting for my blood tests).

The office took me in on short notice and they were really nice and took their time. I didn’t have my cards away before I was called. Truly one of the nicest office and doctor experiences I have encountered. I don’treally go to doctors often because I dislike them. But Dr M was so patient and through. I really wish all Doctors were this thorough and kind.

She is the best of the best. The waiting time could be longer but it’s because she spends enough time with each patient to go through everything very thoroughly. So I don’t mind waiting knowing she will spend quality time goingthrough my issues as well. I truly love her as a person and as a doctor. Please do not retire, Dr Mellow!!!!

Dr. Mellow was thoughtful and professional. Her staff wasn't. The woman at the front desk was Unfriendly and rude. I was kept waiting for one hour and twenty minutes before being seen. Dr. Mellow came out and apologized after I askedhow much longer the wait was. At this point it was 45 minutes after my appointment time. The practice seemed unorganized. I want to restate that Dr. mellow was thoughtful and kind.

Doctor is pretty good But, the waiting time is so long, you can probably go to a 2hr movie and finish, maybe then the doctor may see you. The doctor needs to spend less time typing all the info into PCinstead make notes in paper and later enter the info this saving everyone’s time.

After reading the reviews and Dr Mellow's Bio I decided to go to her and I have to say I am glad I did. Everything you read here is correct, she was super nice, competent and caring (what is really hardto find here in NY). She really takes her time to listen and discuss with us the test results. I was afraid I would wait for a long time (based on the reviews) but she saw me right away! I will definitely go back and I would recommend her to any patient.

It's true what other people have said that there was a wait of about 30 minutes when I arrived. Still, I felt in really good hands with Dr. Mellow. I was just there for a physical but she listened to myconcerns and asked me relevant questions. When she recommended other steps I should take and appointments I should make it felt genuinely based on my health needs rather than just a doctor trying to get me or my insurance to spend more money in various places. I'll definitely be heading back.

I waited more than an hour past my appointment time to be seen, but Dr. Mellow runs behind because she spends tons of time with each patient. She was a good listener, had a great bedside manner, and was able toprovide helpful suggestions and referrals for diagnoses beyond her traditional reach. She engendered trust easily and had a very relatable, likable personality. Would happily see her again.

As a healthcare professional, I was very disappointed with the employees and professionalism at this practice. This was my first appointment here and will not be coming back. The woman who took my vitals and the doctor both failed the knockthe door when entering the room. As did the woman who came in "looking for something" while I was topless and being assessed. Both the doctor and this woman failed to acknowledge how unprofessional this was and failed to apologize. When asking the doctor questions regarding medication, she replied "I do not have time for that right now." When I requested that someone else help me, she handed me off to a woman who was very unhelpful and had no idea what she was prescribing me. I had to guide this woman in obtaining the correct prescription. This is unsafe and unprofessional.

I've seen Dr. Mellow two times now and every time I leave her office I want to give her a big hug. I have not met a more caring physician in NYC. She is so thorough and really takes the timeto understand how you and your results - she's even drawn photos to explain what she's describing. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Mello!

Dr. Mellow is great. My first visit with her was excellent, she spent tons of time getting to know me, understanding my medical background, and any issues or concerns. She is very knowledgeable and has a great network of doctors shecan recommend to you for various issues outside her expertise. She made me feel very comfortable and safe in her care. I would recommend anyone looking for a doctor in NYC to Dr. Mellow!
