I went to Dr. Melepura for lower back pain and he took his time to answer all my questions and toreally understand what I was going through. The wait time was short and I didn’t feel rushed at all during my time there. Highly recommend and will definitely be going.

I’ve been having issues with my back for a long time, but the doctor didn’t offer any real treatment. I walked away disappointed. I then found out that he is out of network, even though zocdoc says he is in network to the plan I selected.

He’s the best. Smart, listens to you and offers so many options for pain management. I’m a tough case since I have RA, no cartridge in my knee and a herniated disc in my cervical spine. I’ve continually made progress withInjections, radio frequency abilation and prp. I can’t say enough about Dr M.

Very nice guy... told me to try a vegan diet. Good advice honestly however nothing for my immediate discomfort/pain. I don’t know how to use his services. I guess he’s the go to if I break something? Or have some typeof chronic terminal illness- even then he may just refer to regular pcp for pain management.

Great experience all-around! The receptionist and Dr. Melepura were both very friendly. He immediately diagnosed my condition and was able to give it an injection for treatment on the same day. The diagnosis was confirmed the next day via an MRI that Dr. Melepura ordered.

What an absolutely perfect and seamless experience! Not only is Dr. MeIepura extremely knowledgeable and personable, he was able to treat my condition with innovative modalities that prior physicians never offered. I was most impressedwith the transparency of the financial department of the office which easily answered every question I have. I feel truly blessed to have found this office and now have been able to return to all my busy life and sport activities without any issues at all. The perfect doctor and the perfect office for the busy on-the-go New Yorker!

Dr. Melepura and his team were fantastic. They were professional, patient, communicative, and happy to provide all the information I needed regarding my treatment. He took the time to discuss my symptoms and explained the medical anatomy.He went over my options and took the time to listen to my concerns. Dr. Melepura was very gentle when performing the pain procedure and I didn't even feel a thing. Every interaction I have had with Dr. Melepura and his office including his receptionists, and nurses has always been top notch with no complaints at all. I book all my doctor's appointments through ZocDoc and this is the only one I felt compelled to review. Highly recommended!
