Great Reputation, calm bedside manner
I met Dr. Melki the day of the LASIK procedure. He has a calm, confident and friendly demeanor. His reputation proceeds him. I felt like I was in excellent hands.

PRK (alternative to LASIK) is the best investment I ever made. I have been a patient of Dr. Melki since 2006. He and his staff are professional and friendly which makes this life-changing process quite easy and stress-free. Also, the new Brookline Village location is visually stunning and state of the art.

Everyone in the office, including Dr. Melki was extremely friendly and helpful. I didn't have to wait long to be seen by one of the technicians. I saw one doctor within a half hour of my arrival, and then had a short wait before seeing Dr. Melki. Dr. Melki looked at my eyes, and said that everything looked good. I had cataract surgery about 10 months ago, and this appointment was the last of several follow up visits I had. He cleared me for another year. Dr. Melki is a warm and caring physician with a great expertise in what he does.

the dr knows what he is doing but the place runs like a machine and you will feel like just a number. i had an allergic reaction to the drops, dont feel it as handled well. when we called w follow up questions we were given the wrong dosing information for the new drops. Be ready to be ushered in and out, good intended staff and great skilled dr but need to brush up on what to do if a patients response doesn't fit the norm.

I recently had PRK with Dr. Melki. He answered all my initial questions and many follow up questions. He is very honest and explained everything clearly. He is clearly at the top of his profession. The surgery went smoothly and Dr. Melki and his staff were efficient and professional. I trust Dr. Melki.

Would absolutely recommend Dr. Melki and his staff from the outset - booking was very pleasant/also loved that it was optionally talk; email; text; chat (since I do all of them) ; the staff were very nice; testing very efficient (I had mentioned I was on limited time and they obliged - Walter in particular - pre visit, had amazing patience with me and was very helpful; I saw Dr. Melki (and also another Doctor (first) yesterday - a fellow - both of them could not be nicer - liked the fact that they were down to earth I loved that Dr. Melki had put an explainer video on YT (which I can revisit) explaining the process and left me to digest it -before he came in Also: their brochures are very patient friendly - I appreciate the fact that they made the cataract photos - shall we say; easier on the eye ;) - patient friendly text as well Thank you all :) For anyone going there - the D line Brookline Village stop got me close - and on the way you have Cafe Nero and Starbucks :) :)

I had Lasik eye surgery in November 2021 with Dr. Melki. The whole procedure was really fast and didn't hurt or anything. I can't recommend it enough to all of my friends and family! It really is life changing, and Dr. Melki was great to work with!
