About Dr. Edward Meltser
Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), Los Angeles
Dr. Meltser graduated Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2015 and is licenced to practice in the state of California (20A15938).
Los Angeles primary care physician: Spent one year working in an outpatient office where I discussed with patients current diagnoses, reviewed medications and lab results, and addressed any concerns that they had to achieve healthy, happy living .
Since 2019, working full time making visits to people’s homes: The same level of care that I delivered in the outpatient office, I now deliver in the comfort of the patient’s home. The majority of the patients that I see are seniors with all range of health concerns from simple aging to palliative and hospice care.
Outside of patient visits, I attend medical lectures that focus on primary care, pain management, and in older populations. I keep abreast of the latest advances in medical knowledge and treatments. I also maintain an online presence where I help deliver important medically related information to the general population.
It is this level of care and knowledge that I will bring to our visits. I am available for home visits in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. We will go over your current health issues, review your medical history, and review your medications in detail. Appropriate prescriptions and lab work can also be ordered as needed based on what we discuss. I’m looking forward to serving you.

Available for non-urgent and non-emergency visits, Monday to Friday.
