28/03/14 1 1 1 1 The worst doctor I have ever met. Told me to go to the street and buy methadose. If you came into her clinic and your arm was cut off, she would toss you out onto to the sidewalk and you would be DAMN lucky if she calls 911. Basically a raging old-hag. Go see any other doctor but her, especially if you truly need help with an addiction.  Respond

30/07/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Melamed is by far one of the best addiction doctors a person seeking recovery could ask for. She treated me with dignity and respect, picked up the phone to consult other professionals in her field and found THE BEST treatment plan tailored to my needs. She is progressive, very knowledgeable and without her I believe I wouldn't be where I am today. She not only made sure I had a competent Dr. when she was unavailable, she gave me her after hours number as well as her email. She gave me her personal touch the entire way. She goes beyond belief to the point of even making sure I didn't have to wait in the waiting room while detoxing and in withdrawal. Dr. Melamed is a Dr. who really cares. LC  Respond

05/06/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Melamed is incredibly proactive and supportive. My treatment was transformed when she entered the picture. It went from being uncoordinated among the various professionals to being coordinated and effective. She not only added her own tremendous professional capacity to my treatment, she also took the initiative of picking up the phone and communicating with the other professionals, thereby creating for me a cohesive and coordinated treatment team. She is a no-nonsense, energetic lady that focuses first and foremost on the patient's recovery and wellbeing. She will do whatever is necessary to make sure her patients' therapeutic needs are met promptly and affordably. She is certainly not a distant and aloof individual, rather she fights for your recovery in an up-close and personal way. She truly rolls up her sleeves and gets in the ring to support you. I just cannot find enough good things to say about her. I simply have never met a doctor like her. Thank you Dr. Melamed! cw
