Dr. Merola is knowledgeable, toughrough, transparent with his practice, and is willing to do the grunt work when other staff is too busy. You cannot find a more respectable doctor!

I have seen Dr. Merola for over two years. I NEVER write reviews. But today I am compelled to do so because of the terrible situation I find myself in. Over the last three weeks I have visited Dr. Merola twotimes, each time was so that he could submit proper documentation for prior authorization of a medication. Both times he has failed to do so. I also received a bill that did not get sent to my health insurance. I contacted Dr. Merola through the patient portal website and received a response from a person named Rosemary, who obviously didn't read my emails because she replied "please schedule appointment to be evaluated" when I asked questions about my insurance. When I called the office a few minutes ago. I was told that Rosemary no longer works there (even though less than 30 minutes ago she emailed me). I do not know if this is a tactic to get me to stop calling. When I asked when Rosemary still has access to patient information (including my contact information and medical records) the person over the phone said that's because she is Dr. Merola's wife. I was appalled! Long story short, I do not recommend Dr. Merola. If you can go to another doctor, do so.

Dr. Merola always makes you feel like you are his only Patient. He listens and never rushes you out the door. He is usually spot on with his recommendations to make you feel better.

It is rare that I find a medical professional who made me feel as comfortable and real as Dr. Merola. The drive is more than an hour and I am adamant to keep him as my Primary Care Provider. I leftconfident and assured and look forward to healing fully due to the guidance and care given by Dr. Merola and his team. Warm Regards Jonathan Quidore (J.P.)

The wait was 2+ Hours and then doc in Hurry to finish up my appointment and see next. Any reason for overbooking appointments. Also asked for co-pay, when it's clear annual check (& free). Even during Lab test, asked to sign Payment, Thu it's fully covered under insurance.

He would not care about your lab report and never follows up even if some of the the readings are alarming. You will have to rely on your own research of the numbers and then have to set up the follow up with him. Terrible.

Dr. Merola cares about his patients and that's why he spends lots of time for his patients. This triggers a very long wait in his office. Make sure that you'll bring a good book to read; then you'll be a very happy patient. He is a gem, I think.

I have been seeing Dr. Merola for all of my ailments over 25 years. I would not see another doctor for free! He is very compassionate and kind hearted. He goes above and beyond by being there for me whenever Ineed medical treatment. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. Most of the time you have to wait to see him BUT he is worth it!

Dr. Merola is nice and patient, but forget about getting a hold of him or his clinic after your visit. They do not answer emails and usually do not pick up the phone. Of course, leaving a message will take younowhere because you never hear back from them. I am deeply disappointed of someone I thought could become my primary care physician.
