Patient reviews for Dr. Scott Melamed
The doctor was great and very thorough in his explanation and plan for treatment. The receptionist was not particularly friendly and made a rude comment when I asked about the wait time.
Dr. Melamed is terrific. I barely waited to be seen and he helped me very quickly.
Dr. Melamed was highly recommended by a previous employer of mine - I used to be a medical receptionist. He's truly knowledgeable 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!
Not even 5 min after I left the office my foot instantly felt better. Thank you doctor Scott you are thee best !!!!!
Dr. Melamed listens, is thorough and cares about your whole body, not just your feet. I appreciate having him on my team.
I have never had such a professional and kind doctor's appointment, thank you! I would recommend him to anyone.
I will always, always recommend him for any your podiatrist needs. He's very kind, personable, and very good at what he does.
Very professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. I’d highly recommend!
My visit with Dr. Melamed was great! He was super knowledgable, and easily diagnosed my issue and got me on the road to recovery!
He is a true professional. Great bedside manner, doesn’t rush you out, takes time to answer all your questions.
I could barely walk when I arrived at Dr. Melamed's office. I was seen right away, everything was explained to me clearly and kindly, and my foot is already on the mend. I highly recommend Dr. Melamed!
Dr. Scott is the nicest and best podiatrist I've been to in the city. Highly recommend
Kind. Patient. Knowledgeable. Trustworthy
Best doctor in NY. Period.
Amazing. I was in and out in a matter of 30minutes, with X-rays. Mr. Melamed explained everything, and answered all my questions. Highly recommended.
Great guy very knowledgeable
Excellent all around. Hardly any wait and took xrays and diagnosed me right away. Definitely would recommend.
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.
He does a great job. He's pleasant and efficient.
I found Dr. Melamed to be very personable and easy to talk to. He provided a thorough explanation of my situation and was able to provide me with temporary pain relief as well as a long term treatment plan.
Personable and walked you through everything. Highly recommend
Doctor Melamed was super kind and friendly; he explained my issues in a way I could understand and kept me calm through a minor procedure he performed
Excellent service and thoughtful feedback/care. Everything was quick, seamless and appreciated. Would highly recommend!
Great experience. Zero wait time. Dr. Melamed explained all treatment options throughly. Highly recommended.
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).
Doctor saw me at my exactly appointment time. He had a warm, friendly, compassionate manner, and explained everything in simple layman's terms. Would highly recommend him.
patience and nice.
Always the same great service.
Super thorough and understanding !
Great visit! Dr. Melamed was really friendly, really approachable, and made a great effort to understand me and my issues. Definitely would recommend.
Dr. Melamed was extremely friendly... he took the time to explain everything thoroughly and encouraged questions. He has the added bonus of being an athlete and understanding injury from that angle as well. The receptionist was also very friendly and I was seen right away. Highly recommend.
Very relatable and pleasant!
Dr. Scott was so helpful and knowledgeable with great bedside manner. All around great visit!
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 ....
Great doctor: knowledgeable, professional, and gets right to the point so you can get the treatment you need and move on with your life. You can tell he cares about his patients. Highly recommend him! ????
Dr. Melamed is a fantastic doctor. Highly recommended.
Dr. Melamed's office receptionist is always welcoming. Dr. Melamed is friendly and caring. Explains his diagnosis clearly and easily understood. He spends the time necessary to recommend a trearment.
I recommended Dr. Melamed to a friend on the way home from our first visit!
He's super great!
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.
I was dreading getting a piece of glass removed from my foot and put it off for months, but Dr, Melamed completely put me at ease.
Dr. Melamed was very friendly and made me feel comfortable throughout my visit. He took the time to clearly explain what he felt was going on and describe his care plan. I would highly recommend him to others.
Dr. Melamed was so kind and helpful. I was blown away and highly recommend him.
