This probably sounds like over-reach, but I'll say it anyway... Dr. Melvin gave me my life back. 23 years ago, suffering from major depression, I decided I needed help and chose to find professional help. The first two psychiatrists I contacted tried "quick fixes", and when they didn't help much, they went no further. Then a friend recommended Dr. Melvin. My first impression when meeting him was a demeanor of calm professionalism, and obvious drive to help me with my problem. After a substantial discussion of my symptoms, he decided that medication was the best choice for me. We tried 3 different anti-depressants, all offered some, but not significant help for my depression...but Dr. Melvin did not give up. He suggested a rather obscure "old school" anti-depressant that he had found was sometimes effective when the more recent medications were not. I knew within 2 hours after taking this that my solution had been found. I was so profoundly moved that it was hard to control my emotions. I felt good for the first time in several years. And this has continued, with this medication, for the last 23 years, really the best years of my life. Maybe some other psychiatrist would have been persistent like Dr. Melvin, but maybe not...and I would be where I was 23 years ago. I hardly ever write this sort of thing. But it occurred to me that there might be someone out there like me who needs someone with his skills to solve there problem. Thank you, Dr. Melvin
