Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Melmed is one of the most caring physicians I have ever visited. He has seen my husband and myself through some rough times and he shows so much compassion. His office staff are wonderful. They keep my husband and I well informed and if there's a problem Dr. Melmed won't stop until he finds out the reason for the problem. I have NEVER waited more than 30 minutes and most of the time it's under 15 mins. I wish there were more physicians like Dr. Melmed.

After becoming his patient, it was 6-months before ever meeting him. Visits were always 2-3 hours just waiting. Constantly hh. Too many pills and tests. No refills on medications. No consultation. Schedules you needlessly. Training staff on equipment during my appointment in my treatment room--paying no attention to me. Most of my visits were with the doctor's assistant.

What could be improved
  • Appointment was rushed
  • Didn't listen or answer questions
  • Didn't explain conditions well
