Not satisfied...rather concerned – I visited Dr. Melnifoff twice.
First time I was there he was 30 minutes late and I was the only one there so there was no justification for this. When he came in, he did not introduce himself. I had two problems that I wanted to address but he quickly told me that he will only address one on that day. It was a contagious skin condition and I was surprised that he did not wear gloves. He also had an OB GYN who works in the same office come in and help out/ watch him work without introducing her or asking my permission. The procedure had nothing to do with gynecology so there was no reason for her to be there.
Second time: I came in for a follow up. He was on time though with taking me in this time. His diagnosis was accurate and treatment was helping. I liked that he made the effort to produce a proper diagnosis. Again however, he did not wear gloves though. He also seemed in a hurry (even though I was the only patient in the office) and still did not address my second issue that I had asked him the previous time.
Treated for warts – I underwent a treatment for warts with Dr Robert M Melnikoff for about a month. The office environment is very amicable and the doctor sounds friendly.
I discontinued the treatment as I felt application of Podophyllin did not lead to any improvement. It led to severe inflammation on the skin for a week each time after application but did not burn any wart. I called the doctor and also visited urgent care because of severe inflammation. What disappointed me was that the I was never told about the side effects and what to do if they occur. That shows how careless the doctor is? Treatment with Podophyllin is slow and I think it cost lot of time, money and pain. Application of Podophyllin on skin is classified as surgery and that was not informed to me at doctor's office. The surgery cost more.
I have now read about alternative treatments such as laser that seems more effective. I think that the doctor chose the less effective treatment to get more money out of my insurance.
