I had chest surgery and I don’t really recommend her as a surgeon or as a practice. The front office staff were super unprofessional, the medical assistants weren’t much better, and I only saw the surgeon once as a consultation and then the morning of the surgery, and then she came running in late to the surgery. She didn’t actually check me out the next day and I just decided to leave because she was late for her surgery that day and I was fed up. I wasn’t happy with the contouring and my PCP was shocked the surgery clinic never followed up with me, but I’m happy to be done with them. Super overpriced for the quality, and I’d recommend doing lots of other consultations if you’re thinking of going to the Meltzer Clinic. All I can say for it is I didn’t die and I got my surgery, but I should have been a much more pleasant experience for the price.
