I had slipped on the ice and fallen causing a serious gash on my forehead. At the emergency room Dr. Melendez stitched my wound beautifully. Subsequent visits to his office were well handled, and professional. Thanks to his work I am scar free.

Dr. Melendez was recommended to me by my surgeon prior to my bilateral mastectomy. During surgery, Dr. Melendez worked side by side with my surgeon which marked the beginning of reconstruction. For a woman to go through such a traumatic and life altering experience, to have a doctor like Dr. Melendez is truly a blessing. He is comforting, compassionate, reassuring, and he is all about his patients, he listens. I am so thankful Dr. Melendez is in my life and highly recommend his professionalism, unprecedented knowledge and his genuine compassion.

Dr. Melendez has to be one of the most kindest doctors I have ever met. He explains everything in detail and doesn't rush you out of the office. I am a 55 year old woman who had a breast reduction by him and I am so happy with the results. It looks like my breasts are from a 20 year olds body. Honestly, THAT'S how great of a job he did. Also, Erin (his medical assistant) is such a pleasure to speak to and always greets me with a smile. They are both down to earth great people. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mark Melendez as your Plastic/Cosmetic Surgeon.

I needed reconstructive face surgery due to a dog bite. Dr. Melendez is a skilled, thorough, and artful. He explains what he needed to do. He sutured microscopically for over an hour. The wound was 3 layers deep. The ER staff thought I would need a skin graft, but he did the repair without one. He takes his time, never hurried. Very compassionate. I was blessed that he was the doc on call that day in the ER. I am so thankful to him, 8 weeks later, my friends no longer see the scar first!

I am beyond thankful to have found Dr. Melendez. After undergoing 9 reconstructive surgeries following a botched double mastectomy by a different surgeon I was left in severe pain and with necrosis in both breasts. I found Dr. Melendez and that appointment changed my life, he is compassionate, caring and knowledgeable about my problems. The implants he put in are comfortable and natural looking, and best of all I feel like a woman again. I cannot thank him enough.
