Verified Patient Reviews
He spends time listening to you. He offered several procedures that worked well.
Dr. Melepura made me feel very comfortable even though my problem may have seemed silly. He had a great bedside manner and took his time with me.
He is a great doctor. Caring, warm and genuinely concerned. He doesn't rush you and listens. I've had injections in my knees that have helped immensely. Three epidurals in my back have staved off surgery. With RA it is never-ending but thankfully I am in good hands with Dr. Melepura. Great staff too.
Saw me right away and was super helpful answering all my questions. Very much appreciated
