Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Melmed "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"

Patient Comments (2)
in Blacklick, Ohio |
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.
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.
