What People Say About Dr. Sanford Melmed, MD
Reply
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.
