    How was your appointment with Dr. Mellano?

    Oct 19, 2021
    Dr. Mellano is GREAT, very caring and understands your needs and the end result of why you came to see him, very personable, listens and makes you feel comfortable. A few months ago I had total knee replacement, it went very well; Dr. Mellano and his assistant explained the surgery so you could understand, answered all questions and made you understand that post physical therapy is VERY important and that your commitment to it should be 100%+ for a speedy and outstanding recovery, of which I was. I would recommend Dr Mellano to my entire family and everyone I know, he's that good! The office staff is very good, office is clean and airy, making an appointment or any other issues have never been a issue, I am very happy with this group, all very helpful and knowledgeable.
