Dr Melamud got me in for an urgent appointment the day I called. I had a problem and was very nervous. She saw me and put me at ease. Thanks so much!
The worst yearly exam I ever had in 45 years, if she was in the room 5 minutes it was a lot, 1 second breast exam and super quick pelvic exam. Didn't ask any questions or if I had any questions. I miss Dr Khan she was awesome . I would not recommend this Dr.

It was my first time with Dr. Melamud and I was feeling a bit apprehensive. She came in and immediately put me at ease. I felt very comfortable discussing my health needs with her. I will definitely use her again as my gynecologist. Her office staff was pleasant and helpful, especially Debbie, a long time employee of the Clark office.

went for an annual exam and she didn't do any internal, pap or Breast exam but billed for an annual exam. Will never go back.
I am sorry you are dissatisfied with your annual visit. Although I cannot comment on your specific case due to HIPPA guidelines, in many instances a physical exam is not needed. This is often the case in young healthy patient patients under age 21 who present with no complains An annual exam is a lot more then an internal/breast exam. It is an opportunity to discuss heath concerns, appropriate screenings and contraception. Feel free to contact our office if you would like to discuss this.

I would totally recommend Dr. Melamud. She is very caring and considerate. She even called in a prescription for me when I was traveling to florida. I took both of my daughters to her when they were growing up and after the moved out they keep coming back and bring their friends. Couldn't recommend her more.
thanks so much!

I am so happy to hear this!

Dr. Melmud delivered my first son and it was a horrible experience. My contractions started at 2am, I called dr Malamud at 4am she told me if I can wait when her office opens at 9am, I told her I can not wait and she said fine then go to the hospital. I went to the hospital at 6am and dr. melamud did not show up at the hospital until 3pm. She barley checked on me, she waited until 7:30pm to decide on a c section. My son's heart rate was dropping. I do not recommend dr. Melamud ????
Dear Kathleen; I am so sorry you were dissatisfied with your birth experience. I cannot discuss your specific case due to HIPPA. I am happy to discuss this with you in person. Just call the office. Keep in mind that even if you don't see me "checking on you", I am always in touch with L&D nurses about your progress. It is a lot easier to just do a c-section then to wait it out and give a patient the best chance to have a vaginal delivery, Please call if you want to discuss this further.

The doctor herself is amazing. The women that run the front office are very nasty and rude. They don't direct you at all. Terrible.
Gina, I am glad you are happy with your care. We are constantly evaluating the office staff and as a result, there were changes made recently. Hope you find your experience with the staff more satisfying in the future. If you have any further problems, please bring it to my attention
