I absolutely love Dr. Melfi and her PA, Rachel. They have been so helpful in making me feel better. I agree with her practices that it's not about drugs. I have never felt better than I have with RSM Medicine. Her new office is stunning!

I have been a patient for a while with this office and it saddens me to read these negative comments. I have had MRI's which Dr. Melfi reread and found an issue that was missed by the radiologist. she gave me a prescription to calm the nerves and I had an injection. I am doing wonderful and I recommend her to all. I laugh when I see people commenting she is cold during a procedure. I don't know many Docs that are chatty during this time. Serious is how I want my doc when putting needles in me!

I really liked Dr. Melfi and her staff. The office is beautiful and they were so considerate. I highly recommend her office to anyone who suffers from back pain. I've had it for 18 years and Dr. Melfi was the first who helped me. I went to NYSpine and had a horrible time. They wanted to do injections where I didn't have pain. Seems to me it was all about what they could charge. Dr. Melfi is conservative. I like that!
Phoenix, NY |
Dr. Melfi performed a procedure on me. She is one of the rudest, most unprofessional & inconsiderate individuals I have ever met. The male nurse assisting her was as well. I would absolutely NEVER recommend her to anyone.
She was cold and uncaring. Never reviewed my medical history and never examined me. Spent less than 2 minutes with me and when I asked questions and wanted to discuss what her plan would be she refused to answer and left the room.

I would never recommend this Doctor she is rude and does not treat her patients or the family with respect. I have a husband with a concussion and the Doctor would ignore my responses and ask my husband the same question I had just answered. Concussion patients get confused and nervous if they can not get there thoughts to process. Also the office has a no perfume policy but never told us about it and we were reprimanded by the Doctor. Just and very rude and unprofessional person.

Great she works with you so u can have a life ?
in Liverpool, NY |
VERY dissatisfied. I was referred 2 Dr. Melfi for pain management by TWO different Dr's. As she was treating me 4 a prior issue, I did not think it would be an issue. She REFUSED 2 see me for pain management, Nor would she offer up what it was I am to do now to bring my pain level down to a tolerable level. I was not looking for medications or drug. Just a little bit of hope that there is a chance I will be able to have some quality to my life. Will not be finishing treatment 4 prior issue.
