Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Melamed was very helpful and patient with me when getting contacts fitted! He seems to be a very nice man and the receptionist was equally hospitable!
first time visiting an optometrist and he and especially his assistant, Diana were outstanding and very helpful. I made the right choice!
Excellent experience all around!
Doesn't check insurance before they take you in and lied about accepting it to patient just to get the business. Front desk is not very thorough or helpful. I will never come here again.
The service is excellent from the moment you walk in the door until the time you walk out the door. I would highly recommend Fouad Melamed to anyone in need of an eye doctor.
Dr. Melamed and his staff were friendly and efficient. I was in and out in less than 40 minutes and received excellent care.
First time visiting and it was great!
Dr Melamed put me at ease and answered all of my questions. Most comfortable I've ever been in an eye doctor's office. His staff was also very pleasant and knowledgable.
Very professional! Very satisfied!
My experience with Dr. Melamed and his staff was very good. They were professional, compassionate, and excellent communicators. I wholeheartedly recommend their services.
Great as always and I come all the way from Pasadena to see him.
I adore this office so much! Have been going there for years!
Very friendly staff. Explained everything before proceeding. Highly recommended.
Everyone in this office is absolutely wonderful, they make everything simple, answer any questions, and help with understanding insurance which is always confusing. The doctor Is great, friendly and knowledge. Been going here for years.
Dr. Melamed was on-time and I was done within 30 minutes. Very professional and quick, highly recommended.
Great experience - everyone was very engaged and awesome!
He seemed very knowledgeable about what I needed. He also made a professional decision based on a test that was not as routine. Dr. Melamed and his staff are very friendly and helpful.
Exactly what I look for in a doctor. He was very knowledgeable, appreciative of my time (I wasn't waiting forever) and answered all my questions. All in all I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
I have nothing to complain about regarding Dr. Melamed. That being said, I think that the woman who works at the front desk needs to do a better job at customer service. I prepaid for a 3-month supply of contact lenses. She said that they would be in within a couple of days. About 2 weeks later, I never heard from the office. I went there thinking that surely they would have arrived, and they still were not in. To make matters more frustrating, in the middle of our conversation, the phone rang and instead of putting the person on the phone on hold she kept me on hold. I have to say that I was really taken aback by the lack of communication from the office and then the poor customer service when I came by to find out what was going on. There are many optometrists in Los Angeles, and I have to say that due to this bad experience I am highly considering taking my business elsewhere.
Figured out was going on and found the cure needed and improved on needed prescription.
Friendly, efficient, and an excellent doctor.
Went in for a routine check up and renewed contact lens prescription. Searched all over Hollywood and ended up going with Dr. Melamed. He and his staff were very professional and did a fantastic job. I did not have to wait around, pricing was fair and he was happy to address any questions or concerns I had about my eyes. Will definitely be back!
The experience was a breeze. Got my exam and he made some nice recommendations for new contact lenses and gave me samples to try them on. Highly recommend!
Dr. Melamed and his entire staff are great. My dad is a retired optometrist and he was the only Dr. I ever went to see for all my eye care needs. After my dad retired I went to many different(five total) eye doctors and none of them came close to the treatment I received from my dad....Obviously. But, then I found Dr. Melamed and felt like I was right at home. My wife and two young kids also go to Dr. Melamed and they all love him. He even came in after hours to see my wife when she had a eye emergency and he and his staff always make my kids feel good about having their eyes examined.
He has been my Dr. For more than 5 yrs. and is professional,, personable and knowledgeable. I am very satisfied and happy with his services.
Dr. Melamed was very knowledgeable and explained things in a way that was clear for someone not versed in eye health. The staff was very friendly and my visit was very quick and thorough.

I am a returning patient. Dr. Melamed is very professional and very competent. The office staff is friendly, courteous and helpful. I live close to the office so I can walk when I choose to do so. Metered parking is also available close to the office. He always sends reminders for my yearly exam which I appreciate.
A delight. Modern, efficient, and charming. Not only the doctor, but his colleagues. If all healthcare were of this calibre, there would be no issue.
This is a great office, very helpful and efficient.
No wait time, very professional. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
Office staff friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. Dr. Melamed was very efficient, attentive, knowledgeable. He was not especially effusive yet allowed more than enough time for questions and all concerns were addressed thoroughly and satisfactorily.
As good as it gets.

Great visit. Explained everything very well. Gave solid solutions.
Had my first visit with Dr. Melamed today. He seemed quite knowledgeable and happy to answer all my questions. The office staff was also very friendly and welcoming. I was fitted for contact lenses and will follow up in a week. So far, my experience has been A-1.
Great professionalism and friendly environment. I'll make this my permanent eye doctor.
Very friendly and easy-going. Worked fast and well. No dials to adjust.
He is awesome!!!! I went to an MD in Chicago for 20 years, never once told me I could get lenses to see near and far. This Doc. hooked me up and now I don't need reading glasses ever. Love it!!!! I love not looking like an old woman.
He has been my eye doctor for a number of years. He is terrific.
He was fabulous
Extraordinarily helpful and kind optometrist and receptionist. Highly recommended!
He is very professional and knowledgable. I recently moved here from Chicago and was seeing an opthalmologist there for 20 years. Dr. Melamed is the first MD that asked me if I wanted to get rid of my readers and have one contact for near and one for far. Now I don't need to use my reading glasses. I see great. Many thanks for changing my life!!!!!
The doctor and his assistant were great. Highly recommended!
The experience with the doctor was great. However his office staff could you use a bit of improvement. After walking in I stood in front of their desk for what felt like a minute before being recognized. Everything after that was great though, and everyone seemed capable and was very nice
It was a quick and easy experience. He and the nurse were kind, and did a great job! I would definitely recommend them to a friend!
He was very professional and took a lot of time to get my prescription correct.
Awesome eye doc. Was seen right away. Quick visit but still very informative.
He was a very informative and friendly Dr. He met all my vision needs, and was approachable enough to ask questions. Very nice, and will definitely be my new eye Dr!!
Best Eye Doc. in LA
Receptionists were not so friendly but got the work was done professionally. Overall, was very fast (but didn't feel like you were being rushed) witch is a huge plus when you have a million things to do before the week ends
I am a dentist, and when I am in the role of a patient I expect to receive the same level of customer service that I strive so hard to deliver to my patients. Dr. Melamed and his staff were friendly, efficient, and very professional, and my visit could not have been better.
Easy, clear, and pleasent interaction.
very nice, very professional, very fast!
Very quick and professional. I appreciate that he did not try to force me into contacts or multiple pairs of different glasses. (that has happened to me)
Very nice and professional. Cared about my well being!
Dr. Melamed was a very nice and easy Eye Dr. He answered all my questions and provided a thorough exam. I highly recommend using his services as his staff is friendly as well.
Dr. Fouad and Staff are great. I highly recommend him to anyone. He has just found a new patience.
Got in and out in 20 minutes. He wasn't pushy and didn't try to sell me things I didn't need. He's my eye doc from now on.
