The provider was very knowledgeable and helpful. Very thorough and answered all concerns. Highly recommend him. However that ability to get an appointment was not timely.

Looking forward to progressing forward and seeing a surgeon as Dr. MILELO RECOMENDED. I BELIEVE THAT THIS WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER MY MYLEOGRAM WHICH IS SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 22ND. I WILL SEND A DISK WITH THE RESULTS OF MY MYELOGRAM TO DR.MEILLO.

Not an Issue with A J Melillo, but trying to reach a doctor that you have been directed to by phone is very difficult and it seem that all roads go to the Cleveland Campus

Reviewed on Oct 8, 2021

In respect of the "care you needed" the very good rating is valid for once you get in the system and actually see the Doctor you needed

Reviewed on Sep 30, 2021

I met with Al. He has always been very kind and understanding. I truly appreciate how comfortable it was to meet with him. Dr Muroz has also been very easy to talk to. I think they both put the comfort of their patients at the front of their concerns
