he is one of the most compassionate caring well educated and gifted and humble surgeons I have ever seen. I have had to prior neck surgeries and 3 prior back surgeries none of which were successful completely it wasn't until he repaired my back for the first time in 7 years I'd no longer suffer from nerve pain in my legs. I travel 2000 miles to have him repair my back and I would do it again thank you very much. Show Less

This dr. Is the best. I first saw him on the Dr's show. I contacted him about my husband. He was willing to review my husband's medical records. Tom is an army veteran that was not treated properly by the veterans hospital. After talking to dr. Melamed we were able to do more research thru my husband's pain mgt. Dr. Her in Texas. And found a spine specialist that did min. Invasive surgery. The neck surgery was a success. We were scared to death. Dr. Melamed put my fears to rest. He is such a kind and caring man. Willing to help anyone to get the right help. I have seen the results of teenagers that thought there lives would never be normal again. He is a true gift from God. Please contact him if you need help. I have a special place in my heart for this man. Show Less

An honest, ethical physician. I've read up and researched him thoroughly. Most importantly, he is skillful.

I went to him for a second opinion for lingering back pain. I was considering opting for surgery but Dr. Melamed suggested that I strengthen my back gradually through guided exercise and therapy. So far it's been quite successful.

I read up on all his blogs and his health tips. It's nice to have a conservative clinician. I am quite appreciative. Show Less

I had a great experience with Dr. Melamed, after years of lower back and leg pain and injections that didn't really work, I found him, he told me what he thought my problem was, ordered an injection in a specific spot and I had no pain for weeks. He suggested surgery but we were going on a trip and I wanted another injection and do the surgery after the trip. He said we had time and fit me in with a cancellation in a few days...best decision ever! In 6 weeks I was ready for our trip without any pain. I highly recommend you get an opinion from him.

Kind, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. I would be happy to recommend Dr. Melamed to anyone needing spine surgery. I was also impressed with his overall approach to health, including his recommendation of the Paleo diet.

After years of back pain and leg pain I got started looking for some solutions, months of PT to strength my core, injections, and a recommendation for surgery. I went for a second opinion with Dr. Melamed. He recommended an injection in a different place where he though the problem was, I had the injection and was pain free for 4 months. Went back and said whats next. He did released a nerve in my lower spine with a one hour surgery. I was home the next day and had some pain but that was expected, after one week, I am pain free for the first time in 13 years. He knew exactly what to do, did it quickly, and with confidence. Highly recommend you get an opinion from him, you will like his confident, direct, manner. Thank you for giving me my life back. Show Less
