"This email is regarding Miss Melissa Van Dyke. I am one of many advocates for for her health well-being care and rights. Mark McKinley the manager has chose to discriminate and treat her very unfairly and by leaving her outside for over five and a half hours as well as her 88 legal working service dog has caused and created her trauma sickness and unnecessary stress. Not only is Miss Melissa Benedict disabled but she is on long-term care and lives in a facility and Mark McKinley made the decision to treat her unfairly and to kick her out of your practice and your facility because home health aide shows to steal from her and the facility. There is plenty of proof legal documents a police report ,a DCF report, documents from spark as well as the state's attorney and many more agencies and advocates. So we are a little confused why she was kicked out of your facility by Mark McKinley as well as refused to see her as the patient and refused urgent medical care medical Care as well as her medications ...
refilled. Miss Van Dyke's facility is a drug-free facility. She has over 5 years of drug tests that she has all passed as well as all of her medicine counts have been correct and there is plenty of proof and legal documents about what happened and her home health aide is now in jail where she belongs. Why Miss Van Dyke is not allowed to have her diabetes medicine her heart medicine her cholesterol medicine her for ADHD medicine her anxiety medicine her inhalers her bipolar medicine and many other medicines as well as kicked out of the practice and made to sit in a hot sun for over 5 hours and to be taken by ambulance is so unprofessional appalling and disgusting as well as illegal and discriminated against and because she is in long-term care and disabled it actually Is much more than discrimination and discriminated against. Her insurance many advocates her new home health aide the 88 and many more agencies have reached out to Mark McKinley and he has not called one person back and has not tried to resolve this issue. I am asking that Miss Melissa Van Dyke immediately be seen Monday morning and her advocates as well as home health aide will be there with plenty of legal documents paperwork improve proven that she did not break any contract or cause any scene and only was trying to be heard and only trying to please with Mark McKinley and the new PA to look at her paperwork to be treated fairly and to look at her paperwork in legal documents however they chose not to they chose to discriminate against they chose to judge prejudge and assume and make incorrect judgments. Ms Van Dyke is an outstanding citizen she's giving back to not only her country but her community and her state. If you look up Melissa Van Dyke and save freedom it is clear that she has sacrificed her life to give back to her community and her see in her country and has rescued and helps many women in human and sex trafficking but do to her career in a car accident unfortunately she is not able to work she is now disabled she is also on long-term care and in assisted living facility and considered 65 and older and she brought the paperwork hospital paperwork doctors paperwork police report DCF paperwork state's Attorney paperwork and documents spark documents and paperwork a CD of all of her medical paperwork and hospitalizations and much more to prove her innocence so she can be treated fairly however was kicked out of your facility by Mark McKinley and made to sit in the hot sun for over 5 and 1/2 hours when recently just getting out of the cardiac unit as well as her legal Ada service dog just getting a procedure done. To make a long story short because Mark McKinley sent her ride from her insurance several times times awayand called her a liar, refused urgent medical care when a Lyft driver drove off with her attached to the car and still has injuries to be looked at aand treatedwas left outside to suffer for over 5 hours and was taken by ambulance both her and he "

Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
