Dr. Melamud has always listened carefully to my complaints and questions, never rushing through an examination and always being considerate of my sensitivity to bright lights and the necessary application of pressure to my eyes. I think he is a good diagnostician and has given me thorough examinations.

Dr. Melamud is a real pro, a highly skilled technician with excellent patient relations skills as well. Once again, during my retina repair procedure on November 11, I was in good hands with him. I trust his analytic judgment and his surgical skills. If I were a pro soccer coach, I would put him on the same team with Messi, Ronaldo, Pirlo and Salah.

Always professional efficient timely. Dr melamud Always listens to concerns and updates and then thoroughly does a diagnostic check . with my last visit he identified a peripheral potential issue in my left eye.. additionally he always has me well prepared for the injections. Erin doing the initial visual testing the photographic services he is really good. I like the idea that he starts with a line that I read from the previous visit vs working down from the 5 inch letters all the way down to a previous known level. time efficient.
