Ratings for Dr. William David Mello
Worst doctor EVER!!!! Bar none. Wife went to him with major colon problem. Gave her two treatments neither of them helped. Once she had to go to emergency and when the attending doctor called Mello to ask about what should be done, he replied "Use you common sense, she's HBO" Totally arrogant, didn't give a damn about me wife. Should have his license to practiced revoked. My wife went to another doctor and when she mentioned she had been going to this incompetent they told her they get a lot of complaints about Mello. Needless to say would never recommended him to anyone and cannot understand how Vergudo keeps him on their staff. AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS!!!!
Absolutely the worst doctor I have met. Rude, arrogant, dismissive and uncaring. I was referred to him by my primary doctor after my gastro retired. I suffer from UC and although I heard horrible things about Mello from people I work with, I decided to give him a chance. He didn't care to hear my concerns about the meds he was prescribing or tell me why he wanted change them. It was his way or the highway. After my first visit I called my primary doctor and asked him for a new referral. Never went back.
was referred to Dr. Mello by my PCP for a swallowing problem. Had been to another G.I. but wasn't getting any better. Dr. Mello listened to my story very calmly and then asked a lot of questions. I found him to be concerned and interested in me. He ended up scoping me and giving me a different diagnosis. The medicine he gave me was very helpful. I highly recommend him.
I don't expect much but this guy is the worst out there, hands down. He hates people on HMOs and talks about them behind their backs. I overheard him telling his nurse not to bother with a patient follow-up because she was on an HMO. He messed up my Endoscopy procedure and I still have traumatic nightmares about it. He is rude and shows no care to people at all. I say "people" because I noticed how rude he was to everyone, not just me. I went to him with excessive vomiting and diahrrea for months and he gave me no relief. After going to another doctor, I was diagnosed and treated within 2 visits. So, not only is he rude, but he is also incompetent.
This doctor shows no care to patients, he is rude and condescending, does not even try to diagnose correctly, made a huge mistake during a simple endoscopy, HATES HMOs, and even after multiple attempts to give him another chance, I left undagnosed which was quickly corrected by going to another doctor who was able to diagnose my condition.
