Dr. Melamud is an incredible doctor and he works very hard to keep my vision the best it can be. He made sure my retina issues were resolved and he has kept them that way. Thanks to his care, I am confident in my vision and my eye health. Candidly, I wouldn't go anywhere else and I would encourage anyone who needs retina or macula work to see him out immediately. He is truly a one-percenter when it comes to Ophthalmology.
