Dr. Melton hands on is one of the best physicians ever! My children love Dr. Melton, he has saved their lives and helped us parents to live with children with food allergies

Loved how Dr. Melton personally engaged my child and felt focused on his time with us.

Dr. Melton is outstanding and is the best physician I have ever encountered at the Cleveland Clinic. He is intelligent, not arrogant and very down to earth. I have seen several providers at CC for both my own health and that of my children and while most are very good at what they do, Dr. Melton is one of the remaining physicians left who genuinely looks at the patient (in this case, my child) and what is in there best health interests. He is not pushy on doing anything my family isn't comfortable with. He will be truly missed when he retires (we hope he can stick around as long as his health allows it). I can honestly say as a parent that I feel his care is above and beyond what most doctors do. I would consider him probably one of the best pediatric allergists in the US. I hope whoever reads this survey knows how lucky they are to have Dr. Melton at the Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Melton went above and beyond helping explain "why" and physically walking down to support my won with his bloodwork. Excellent support to our entire family.

Reviewed on Aug 16, 2023

So incredibly grateful to Dr. Melton and has staff during this difficult appointment as my son had massive fear around getting bloodwork. Never felt more supported by a doctor & staff outside of this moment.

I have already recommended Dr. Melton to others. He was absolutely incredible. The perfect combination of kind, intelligent, and thorough. You don't meet doctors like this often. He is truly a special man and clinician.

Dr Melton is a true example of putting patients first, clinical excellence and genuine care. He has been my sons doctor for over 10 years and remains one the best physicians we've ever seen.
