I think Dr. Mellon is an outstanding physician, but you don??t know me and probably don??t care what I think, so I??ll just share my story. I have a genetic disorder that caused me to suffer from chronic sinus and ear infections for many years. Last year, an ENT at Mercy told me I would have recurrent infections for the rest of my life and that antibiotics were the only treatment available. I refused to accept this diagnosis and went to Dr. Mellon for a second opinion. At first, she treated my infections with strong antibiotics, but the relief was always temporary. I would improve for a few weeks, but the infection always returned. During this time, she sent me to an allergy specialist and tested my immune system. Every time I came in with an infection, she took a sample and sent it for testing to make sure the right antibiotic was prescribed for the bacteria causing the infection. She's a very thorough physician and looks for the underlying cause of an ailment. I appreciate this, because I don't like being a guinea pig for doctors who prescribe one drug after another hoping to find one that works. So after determining the exact cause of my recurrent infections, she suggested a new option. Surgery. Now, I don??t enjoy surgery any more than you do, but anything sounded better than dealing with infections indefinitely. Dr. Mellon performed the surgery herself. She opened my sinus cavities and put tubes in my ears. My infections stopped immediately. This was 6 months ago, and I yet to experience another infection. This procedure greatly improved my quality of life. It??s easier to breathe now, and I feel so much healthier. I would recommend Dr. Mellon to anyone who deals with ear or sinus infections. She's the best ENT specialist I've ever had, and I've lived in several states and seen countless doctors.
