Dr Melin has twice considerably extended my life. I am glad she is my oncologist.

Dr. Melin is very good.

12/27/2016

Love love *Dr. Susan Melin. I drive 3 hours to see her.

12/8/2016

Dr Melin is a great oncologist and always includes me in decisions regarding my health and treatment.

11/1/2016

My mother is deceased, I am an only child, being told you have cancer is very devastating. *Dr. Melin was very comforting, her care & concern felt motherly.

Remember that this is all happening to me for the first time. I don't want someone to casually talk about removing my breasts in a matter of fact way. I don't want to be asked repeatedly whether or not I want a flu shot when I have said no to the shot. I have heard that Melin is an excellent doctor but her bedside manner needs improvement. I agree.

8/24/2016

Takes an entire day for an appointment.

8/22/2016

dr melin is most excellent - best physician I have (& I have a few!). love love her...will call after hours...truly cares for her patients.

8/18/2016

This doctor is condescending, sarcastic and disrespectful. She rolls her eyes at any questions I ask and seems very irritated by them.

8/2/2016

Never talked about any of my issues.

7/28/2016

I think something *Dr. Melin assumes that because I am highly educated, I will understand all of her medical vocabulary - but I am not well _____ IN MEDICINE & sometimes have to ask her to explain.

7/12/2016

Dr Melin has twice extended my life significantly. I am very grateful for her expertise.

5/10/2016

Everyone is great.
