Dr Jamar Melton- If your child is in the hospital he will see his patients verses using a hospitalist.
We see Dr Melton. I love him. He has been great with both of my kids. His nurse heather is great as well and calls you back very quickly. I never have a problem getting an appointment and don’t wait very long. I’ve also seen other doctors in the practice who are great. That’s one reason I choose that practice as well. He will also see your child if your child is in the hospital instead of having to use hospitalist.
