Would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Waited about an extra hour after my scheduled appointment to see the doctor, because he was running behind on appointments. Reached out after my checkup multiple times trying to get help to find a specialized therapist but didn’t even get a message back. Very unprofessional. Don’t recommend at all.

Dr. Merola is an excellent doctor, who's vastly knowledgeable and offers some great care - he really gets to know you, especially over time. The only real issue is keeping appointments on schedule. I can't figure out quite why, but for the last year or so, waiting times seem be pretty long.

Dr. Merola truly cares about his patients . He always goes above and beyond while spending more than the 10 minutes like most traditional doctors do. He goes over you’re symptoms and explains things throughly. The wait time is longer than expected, but the service and attention you get from Dr. Merola is hard to find when you are managing you own care. Having patience goes a long way as you walk out being well informed and educated. It’s very rare to find someone as passionate and professional such as Dr. Merola. He’s a great primary care and always looks after his patients best interest. Patients also should be aware he handles his own practice and with that comes the responsibility of the patient being understanding of you have to wait longer than expected. I always try and book an early appt, as you’ll be waiting for about an hour. It’s not for everyone, but I’ve been seeing him for over 15 years and have never had a primary care doctor treat me with such care and kindness like Dr. Merola has.

He was extremely nice and took his time with me. While I did have to wait I can see that people are waiting due to the time and care the Dr. is taking with each person. It was worth the wait in my opinion to have such focused and supportive care from Dr. Merola.

This was my first visit ever with Dr. Henry Merola. I found him to be very friendly, approachable, and took the time to really listen to my concerns with my health. The wait time was less than an hour because there were a few other people waiting ahead of me, which didn't really bother me at all. It is typically the norm when I visit any clinic or doc, so I was fine waiting.

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 two times, 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.

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 left confident 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.)

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.
