The front desk staff and the nurses were wonderful! Very friendly and professional! My appointment was with the nurse practitioner,Fiona. She was extremely professional, talked me through each step of the exam, and answered all my questions. I am extremely anxiety ridden during these appointments and she made me feel at ease. I would’ve liked a little bit more hand holding, hah, but I appreciated the straight to the point, let’s get this exam done and get you out of here approach. She knew I was nervous, so she didn’t want to prolong anything. I also highly appreciated explaining everything to me the entire time. I cannot express how much I also enjoyed the other office staff members. The medical assistant/lab tech was excellent. Best blood draw I’ve ever received! I would recommend this office to others, and I plan on remaining a patient here.

Dr. Elaine takes the time to ask questions on your health and how you are doing in general. It took some time to find a gynecologist who takes the time to listen, who is friendly and know her job, but Ifinally found one in Dr. Melamud which is why I have been going to her for over five years now.

This doctor explained everything to me in detail, listened to my concerns, and answered all my post menopausal questions. As a cancer survivor I have an extensive medical history, therefore I always have many questions when I see a new physician.I plan to follow-up with her. I also referred my adult daughter.

Dr. Melamud was very nice and professional, she answered all my questions and calmed my nerves. My only complaint is the wait to see the doctor. I had a 1pm appointment and apparently the entire office is on lunch until then.I arrived about 10 minutes early so I could fill out paperwork and be ready to go for the appointment and the women at the front desk wouldn't help me at all and told me I had to wait until their lunch was over which is a little ridiculous. Once they gave me the paperwork I still had to wait another 30 minutes for my name to get called and about another 15 for the doctor to get into the room.

I would not go back to this doctor. The exam was extremely quick and her staff was very friendly, but the doctor herself at one point laughed at me for being uncomfortable. There was no warning that the exam was beginning,no explanation of what she would be doing, including using the speculum. It was shocking to say the least, and I would have expected a doctor to be a bit more understanding with a younger patient. If you want a doctor that talks you through the exam, answers all your questions and makes you feel comfortable, she is not it.

I think Dr. Malamud was extremely helpful. I had an operation due to an ectopic pregnancy and my operating Dr. Told me I can't use birth control. This was not accurate information and Dr. M told me it's actually dangerouse forme to not be on birth control. I was so happy she gave me correct information. She was very helpful and she is definitely my new Gyno. I am now going to be on the depo shot every three months and I feel so much better knowing I won't have a problem. It's important for me because an accidental pregnancy for me is very dangerous. I could loose my other ovarie and be unable to have children,I could also die. I'm really glad I found a great Dr. Who I can trust.

She was nice, I liked her much more than my last OB-GYN, but not as much as my original. Regardless, she really took the time to explain the steps to me regarding my particular issue, and made me feel more atease than my previous OB-GYN; the office also had a lot of happy pregnant ladies coming and going, which made me feel like the office is popular in the area, and that of course helped me feel more at ease.
