Dr. Melnick was knowledgeable, pleasant and explained instructions well. It was disappointing each time I was not pregnant but He tried. He was pleasant and professional. He was usually punctual. He took time with instructions...He transferred one embryo for most of the IVF...While my embryos were considered excellent they did not implant. He was never able to confirm why. I think Dr. Melnick is resilient, and determined to satisfy his patients. I would hope he will try all the new techniques now available. I have one last chance of IVF with my Husband sperms but I am unable to afford it. I am sure he will continue to be pleasant and professional.
