Unprofessional behavior

I did not have a good expirience with doctor Jacob Melamed . On my visit he prescribed me a medication and told me to call him back to tell if it work. After a week of using the medication and realizing that it does not work for me I tried to get in touch with him asking to return my call. He never rreturn my calls. I call him the following day with the same result. I find it very unprofessional.
