in Columbus,Ohio |
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.

my training and experience in both emergency medicine and internal medicine allows me to treat a wide spectrum of disease processes from very urgent issues to chronic diseases.  many procedures that one might think can only be done in the emergency department or urgent care, can easily be done here and without the wait!  this includes treatment for lacerations, fractures, non-life-threatening chest pain and shortness of breath, coughs/colds, infections, anxiety, depression, mood swings, gynecologic issues, and much much more.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Melmed's Care Philosophy

i view my main role as someone who listens to a patients' issues and then provides them with their options so that we can come to a joint decision about what might be the best approach.

patient education is a key element in my practice; the more that the patient is educated about their issues the better we can discuss their treatment plan

communication with the patient is given top priority and we do this at my practice through all available modes whether it be verbally (including on the telephone) or in written fashion (including via e-mail)

sharing information w/loved-ones, when requested by the patient, is very much a part of what we do here.  support from those around us is key in helping us get back to good health
