It was my first time meeting Dr Melnik, he was very attentive and listened to my concerns . Overall it was a wonderful experience.

Amazing dr! I was hesitant to see him since he isn't my primary gyno and doesn't know my medical history. I've recently had a hysterectomy due to ovarian cancer. I scheduled an appointment because I was worried that something was wrong or I was getting an infection. Dr Melnik took his time with me, listened to me, went over my most recent scans I was waiting over 2 weeks to get, and also called me the following day to check on me. He knew the hard time I was having not knowing my results. I couldn't appreciate his kindness and professionalism more. I highly recommend him.

Everyone at the front desk was very nice and friendly. Dr. Melnik was running behind so he made an effort to come in and tell me he would be a little late. When it was getting to be time for him to come in he came in the room and said just a few more minutes. I appreciated that he took the time to let me know instead of just leaving me there to wait. I always enjoy my visit with Dr. Melnik he is very nice, and always listens to what I have to say.

This is probably the best appointment with a doctor that I've had in many, many, many years. Dr. Seymour Melnik is a very lovely gentleman, was very attentive and just really made me feel like his time was meant for me.

Dr. Melnik is very empathetic. He takes the time to really listen to you and to explain what you're going through, what the medical conditions are that might be causing your symptoms and so forth and I truly truly appreciate how deep is the attempt is to not only listen, but, to explain as well. He is a very understanding and kind doctor.

Going to see a gynecologist isn't an easy thing. They got me in right away which was amazing because it usually takes days. Dr. Seymour was the best Dr. I have EVER had. He explained in detail what his findings where. He and the nurse made me feel very comfortable. He answered all my questions thoroughly. Questions that I had tried asking other Dr.'s in the past but they always acted like they never had the time to give a straight answer. I told my friends about it because it's not everyday you get a Doctor that actually cares! Thank you

Dr. Melnik Seymour was very knowledgeable. He's very trustworthy. He spent a lot of time, educating me explaining these diagrams so that I could see what was going on and anatomically. He's a wealth of experience. Lots of patience. He's an excellent physician, and I hope he never retires. He is that good. Thank you.

I called in on Friday and was able to receive an appointment the same day. It was an urgent matter. So that was very much appreciated, Dr. Seymour Melnik, reached out to me today Monday to follow up,and get back to me regarding results test results, and that is something not very common, and again it is very appreciated. UI would defiantly recommend this office to my family and friends thank you very much.

Kind and caring dr
March 17, 2022
Dr. Seymour Melnik was the first doctor who listened to me and didn't push anything I wasn't comfortable with on me. I came in for what I thought was just an IUD removal, as I'd been having problems with it, but it ended up being more than that. My previous doctor had diagnosed me with endometriosis without ever doing a laparoscopy or physical exam, only went off symptoms I described. Dr. Melnik was the first out of 6 drs I've seen to even offer a lap, as well as listen to why I didn't want to go back on hormonal birth control. The nurse who assisted Dr Melnik with the IUD removal was also very sweet. As I was walking out, I was crying, and Dr. Marc Melnik pulled me into a room to talk and make sure I was okay. Overall, the staff here is the most caring I've ever met. Thank you.

Overall I had a good experience. I can't say enough about the doctor. He was attentive, concerned and really made time to listen. However it was late in the day and one back staff member seemed to be eager to get out on time. She actually came in consultation room have way between doctor and I conversation and demanded we do pap smear first and then to continue with our conversation. Doctor seemed really bothered by that and so was I.

I've been seeing Dr. Melnik Sr. for years as my gynecologist. He's delivered my children and now I'm 55 years old and trust him with my post menopausal care. He's so caring and and really listens to his patients.
February 04, 2022
This appointment was terrible. I was not heard or listened to. I was given medication for something i don't even have nor can i use. I was tested for things i didn't even come into the office for. I was talked to about my weight and not the concern i came in for.
February 04, 2022
Dr. S Melnik is always great. He is kind, thoughtful and always makes me feel comfortable.
January 25, 2022
So glad I found this Provider when I did. He delivered both of my healthy babies. I love they way he is really concerned about my health. He takes the time to sit and answer any questions or concerns I have. He is very patient and doesn't rush through the office visit. Always a pleasant office visit.

Dr. Seymour Melnik is a consummate professional with excellent bedside manner. I have been a patient of his for years and always feel comfortable and have complete trust in him. He is very knowledgeable and takes time to listen and explain things. He is thorough in his examinations and a very caring person. I am extremely happy being under his care and compliment PIH for having him as part of this medical group. Thank you.
January 12, 2022

Doctor really listens to me, and cares
November 24, 2021
The provider was great. Wait time is what really sucks. I waited over 30 minutes just to be seen with nobody telling me what was going on. No communication from the staff. I waited 30 minutes in the room alone waiting for the provider. So, that's the only thing that's left with the wait time.
November 24, 2021
Dr. S. Melnik is very good, he notices when I am nervous and puts me at ease. Staff was great as well.
November 23, 2021

Dr. Seymour Melnik is probably the best doctor I have ever had with the best bedside manor. He is kind, of course very knowledgable, goes out of his way to think of everything that should be discussed and gets you to seriously evaluate your health and options for improvement if needed. He is genuinely concerned with you as his patient in all aspects; physically and emotionally. I hope he never retires but of course he deserves to when he is ready :)
