I would not recommend going to American Family Care – Montclair unless you legitimately have no other option. Dr. Miguel Santiago-Melendez is the worst doctor I’ve ever encountered. He has terrible bedside manner and is completely incompetent.
He tells EVERYONE that they have a mycoplasma infection (walking pneumonia).
The blood test he uses for it stays positive for two years after you’ve been exposed to that bacteria.
So naturally a lot of people will test positive for it.
For that reason, the blood test isn’t a legitimate way to diagnose mycoplasma; you’re supposed to do a chest x-ray.
Additionally, I had no signs or symptoms of walking pneumonia. So the diagnosis of walking pneumonia was ridiculous.
He completely misdiagnosed my condition, and I had to go to my normal PCP a few days later to fix it.
He is incredibly rude, patronizing, and wouldn’t listen to anything I said.
He said “oh look we have an expert here” when I tried to suggest something to him.
