Melissa is the perfect blend of professional care and personal touch. She not only provides exceptional medical care, her demeanor with patients shows she truly cares about their well-being. I have been to a lot of doctor appointments in my life, and I actually look forward to my visits at the CHF clinic.

Need to improve the receptionist attitude and concern for the patient. The nursing staff and Melissa were great, especially Melissa.
