Dr. Melamed told me during the appointment that he "doesn't do miracles." I was hoping for an answer as to what is going on and a solution that would alleviate symptoms. I felt like he was condescending and not a good listener or didn't take my symptoms seriously. How about not insinuating that your patient is beyond help or needs a miracle to fix them? How about offering some sort of confidence in your abilities? How about looking at the big picture and identify the connection?

Dr.Melamed is an excellent neurosurgeon surgeon. I know that I am in great hands with him, he has been wonderful. Surgery was great and he is always checking on me even a year later. He made time to come by and see me at the hospital when i had to be at Porter for a something unrelated to what he has treated me for. The ladies in his office are also very kind.

Dr. Melamed takes his time and is extremely thourogh and explains your procedure in details. His calm demeanor gives you the trust you need for a complicated surgery. My surgery (lumbar spinal fusion/lumbar decompression) was 3 months ago and so far I am very satisfied with the results. You can address any additional questions you have via text/email and Dr. Melamed responds promptly. I felt at ease from the beginning I met him and completely trusted him.

Dr. Melamed performed a shunt placement in my brain in early Dec 2015. He listens to me and answers all my questions and spends the appropriate amount of time with me. He makes sure I understand all we talked about for my follow up and treatment. This is extremely important to me for my concerns and own personal care. The amount of time a doctor spends with patients shows me they really care and that is number 1 priority in a Doctor for me. One that will actually sit and listen to me.
