I was trying to find an eye doctor within my network and was glad I did just the basic eye exam. I was late by 10 min, but they accommodated me. Found out my eye issues based on Dr. Melamed's assessmentand if I follow his guidelines, I hope to not have to have glasses in the future.

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.

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.

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 waitaround, pricing was fair and he was happy to address any questions or concerns I had about my eyes. Will definitely be back!

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.
