The doctor was great and very thorough in his explanation and plan for treatment. The receptionist was not particularlyfriendly and made a rude comment when I asked about the wait time.

Dr. Melamed was highly recommended by a previous employer of mine - I used to be a medical receptionist. He's trulyknowledgeable and listens well, makes sure you understand everything he is saying and is extremely patient. One of the best experiences I've ever had with any provider!

The doctor was great, BUT one of the ladies at the reception (the one in charge of billing) was very rude and would be the only reason why I would not go back to see Dr. Melamed. I also wrote the office to ask for a doctor´s note and never got a response.

We have been searching through trial and error for a podiatrist we can work with going forward for my daughter, who will have ongoing feet management issues - we met with Dr Melamed today and are so happy we did - he is so friendly and practical and positive and took care of my daughter immediately. We will continue to use him for orthotics and her foot pain. Highly recommend (and worth the wait).

This is how doctors appointment should be done!! You are actually seen at your scheduled appointment time, given the opportunity to ask questions without feeling rushed, given treatment and follow up instructions. All the while being treated with respect and not as if you are bothering the doctor. My first time seeingDr. Melamed, but I’m already super impressed!!!

I visited Dr Melamed to check out some foot pain I was feeling. He clearly explained the reasons for the pain, addressed my concerns, and proposed a plan for short and long term resolution of the problem. I highly recommend Dr Melamed and his office.

Today was my first visit with Dr. Melamed and what impressed me the most was his knowledge about 2 issues I had...in the past 7 years or so I have beet to about 4 different Doctors about me feet. They all did something different with me from orthodontics, to nail removal and an authorization to operate on a hammer toe, which thankfully I declined. To date nothing has helped me with my real issues. Dr. Melamed put my mind to rest and offered two excellent options and gave me hope. ...to be continued ....

Dr. Scott was the first podiatrist that I visited in NYC and he will be the only one, if I can have it that way! He was joyful, friendly, supportive, and professional. Excellent doctor, seems to know his field very very well, and is a good man. Appreciate his work immensely.

I was very impressed with the quality of the service I received today. The only reason I don't highly recommend the dr. now is because I don't know how effective his treatment will be. He seemed to know what to do for the pain and burning I feel in my feet but time will tell.
