Verified Patient Reviews
Punctual with appointment time but overworked and overbooked. Lacks patience or time to listen and explain. Refuses to complete any refill, order or documentation since he is always busy.
I?m very pleased with my visit with Dr. Melgar.
I had an annual physical with Doctor Melgar. He was a pleasure to see and I would recommend him with confidence to my family and friends. I am giving 4 stars because of my experience with the nurse beforehand. I asked if EKG's were a standard part of annual physicals, and whether I might be charged extra for it. She looked agitated and went to check with Dr. Melgar. When she returned, she said they were indeed covered but since I didn't seem to want it, she wouldn't go through with it. She started wheeling the EKG machine out without a response from me, then scolded me about how I should have researched this beforehand. This soured an otherwise great experience.
The office was over booked the day of my appointment. The nurse told me, There was not enough time for a full exam because there were other patients waiting. Well I waited for 45 min so I think I'm in my right to ask questions and request blood work. When the doctor came in he was there for about 5 min. He listened to my concerns but gave me rushed answers and left.
Doctor Melgar is professional and approachable. I am very comfortable with him as my primary care doctor
Dr. Melgar is very sociable and very detail oriented. He discusses any issues with confidence and is thorough.
He is really good. He was sympathetic to issues that I might have had. He took time to talk with me about all health issues. He had a great personality as far as smiling, listening to what I had to say, and was very professional. I did not feel like patient #______ but a person he might be concerned about.
Very informative doctor, as he shares the details and explains issues very well. I recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Melgar is very thorough, yet personable and easy going. I really felt like I was in good hands. His office staff is great and also, very personable and caring.
