This review is sort of late, but I’m a first-time mother of twins (born in February), so I have an excuse! I feel compelled to write a review because I am so, so appreciative of every doctor in this amazing practice, and if you are searching for doctors that specialize in high-risk pregnancies (multiples, in my case), look no further.

Specifically: Dr. Gupta, who I met with at my first visit and made me feel sure I was in the right place; Dr. Saltzman, who reviewed most of our ultrasounds and walked us through our genetic testing, keeping us smiling with his great sense of humor; Ms. Sherrier, who helped me manage my nutrition; Dr. Miller, who spent (literally) hours with us in his office answering my millions of questions and going over my birth plan; Dr. Fox, who compared my stats against their extensive database to predict exactly how far I would go in my pregnancy and was accurate to within two days (seriously); Dr. Klauser, who sat with us for hours in the hospital when I was admitted for monitoring at 33 weeks; Dr. Jennifer Lam, who shared stories of her own pregnancy and experience as a mother with me; and finally, Dr. Silverstein and Dr. Melka, who saw me through my amazing delivery.

This practice supported me from 14 weeks (when I switched from a different practice) until I delivered my girls at 35w2d, which is about average for twins. They allowed me to deliver vaginally with my doula and my husband at my side, despite my Baby B presenting breech and a complication of high blood pressure at the end of my pregnancy. I am almost positive that any other practice would have insisted on a C-section, but Drs. Silverstein and Melka coached me through my delivery and it was amazing! Dr. Melka performed a perfect breech extraction of Baby B, and I was up and walking around within hours of giving birth, and my recovery was fast and smooth.

My girls were born healthy and strong, and we were all home within a few days, despite their prematurity. They are lively nine-month-olds now, and I am so grateful that MFM Associates kept us all safe and healthy.

I should add that the nurses and ultrasound techs are also fabulous, I never had any billing issues, the front desk staff are professional and pleasant, they always have snacks and drinks available, and their appointment-making process is very efficient.

Every one of the doctors I have seen in this practice is incredible. I can’t fathom a better experience elsewhere.

Erica M.

I cannot say enough good things about this practice. EVERY doc I saw was attentive to me and answered every one of my questions, no matter how crazy.

Dr. Melka delivered my baby girl and she was so patient and very personable. Dr. Bender was equally as amazing. My delivery was such a wonderful experience mostly because of the wonderful care I’ve received.

5 stars aren’t enough for Dr. Melka! As a birth doula, I have worked with many great OBs, but few shine a light to Dr. Melka. She not only offers high quality, evidence-based care, but engages her patients in the decision-making process. Her comforting, patient presence in the delivery room and her collaborative team effort with every person in the room made for an outstanding experience. She even encouraged my client to push in whatever position she felt most comfortable- a rarity from what I have witnessed in most delivery rooms.

If you’re looking for an OB who provides exceptional, personalized care, Dr. Melka comes with high praise! Five stars and two thumbs up to this practice that specializes in high risk care while treating women with the compassion and respect every woman deserves during childbirth.
