“Dr. Melvin took care of my father during the final months of his time on earth. I was so impressed with her bedside manner. My dad was not always the "easiest" patient. He was set in his ways and had very strong beliefs. Dr. Melvin still maintained a level of concern and care that was patient and kind. She was also very "hands on" and took extra steps to ensure he was being taken care of properly. Lastly, anytime we ever told another health care professional that Dr. Melvin was his primary, they were quick to advise that she was a fantastic doctor that truly cared for her patients.” - Vitals.com
