My last response to the question has nothing to do with Alan or Dr. Muroz's office.

I was treated with respect. My oxygen ran out and they provided me with oxygen. Dr. Melillo listened to all I said and provided me with great answers and scheduled me for test to provid the guidance I need.

I have never met a PA that showed the amount of honesty and care that he did. I was actually shocked. I was 100% satisfied with the treatment plan suggested and appreciated that he treated me with kindness. I liked the fact that he explained things thoroughly and showed me my MRI images and explained them to me. I went to him for an expert opinion and I got it. He is a wonderful PA and I would see him again if I needed to. He gave me the peace of mind I have needed. That's why I drove so far to see him. It's not every day I meet an honest PA or doctor, so I was glad to meet him. It meant a lot to me and soothed some of my anxiety about doctors and PAs. He was also very good about communicating my x-ray results back to me through My Chart the next day. I want to thank him for that. He has no idea how much he has made a difference in my life in just one visit. So, please tell him thank you for me.
