Dr. Merok and his staff is amazing!
Dr. Merok has some of the best bed side manner of any doctor I've seen. I was dealing with a somewhat complicated medical problem I'd seen other doctors about for year.

My spouse and I Primary Physician retired this past December of 2016 so we have spent nearly 5 months looking for a new primary doctor. Finally, the search is over, I felt Dr. Merok was very genuine, caring and listen to the patients needs. Speaking as someone who doesn't really open up to people after initially meeting but Dr. Merok provided a sense of safety and really listened to what I had to say. Thank you!
I had my second visit with Dr. Merok and have decided to continue on with him as my Primary physician. After my previous doctor retired it's been difficult finding another doctor I can trust and feel they actually care and with that said Dr. Merok is that guy. Great doctor who cares about his patients.
Well run practice, Dr. Merok is top notch!
Dr. Merok is always very thorough, professional and easy to talk to. He never rushes or makes me feel rushed. He allows time for questions and explains things clearly. My husband also sees Dr. Merok and we both know we are in good hands.

Dr. Merok is the best. He's been my primary care physician for a few years and I hope he will continue being my primary doctor forever. He always make me feels at ease and listens to all of my problems.

I've been seeing Dr Merok for years - every time I see him I'm blown away by his care. He takes the time to listen, makes you feel at ease - and I always feel confident about his assessments and recommendations. Also - the rest of the staff at Michigan Ave Primary are uncommonly kind and good at what the do. Highly recommend this clinic and Dr Merok.
Doctor Merok is the best!
Dr Merck explained everything in an understandable way. His manner was very pleasant and engaging. He was very knowledgeable in the subject matter. I would definitely see this doctor again and would highly recommend him.
Was very good visit
Dr. Merok was one of the nicest and most helpful doctors I've ever been to. I will definitely recommend him to everyone I know.
Dr. Merok is personable, kind and caring. He takes time to know the patient, which often means sharing topics other than those related to one's health. I recommended him to my daughter when she moved back to Chicago, and she sings his praises, too!
His demeanor is so pleasant and put me at ease!
Overall great experience, glad to have found Josh on Zoc Doc
Dr. Merok is so nice and has such a great bedside manner and is always very caring. I couldn't ask for a better doctor! He apologized for the extensive wait time, which by the way is not the norm. Would highly recommend Dr. Merok.
Very empathic physician who is thorough and knowledgeable.

Best doctor I've ever had. Everyone in the office is in perfect sync and actually cares. Also, I never leave reviews unless they are warranted and positive.
Dr. Joshua Merok is a very comforting individual and is genuine when helping. Almost everyone in this entire practice has been very helpful and feels like it's not forced care. Never nervous coming in here because of what Joshua and everyone else here does for there patients. Sometimes there's a long wait to get your doctor scheduled but you'll deal with that being in a high volume area like the loop. First choice is Joshua but if you can't get him any other individual here is great too.
I definitely plan to go back for my yearly checkups. Dr. Merok was very personable and easy to talk. Great location and wonderful staff.
Dr Merok was extremely friendly and helpful, as was the entire staff. I didn't wait long either. Very glad I came here for care.

He's a great doctor, very concerned with each person's health. I'm very fortunate to have such a great doctor.
Dr. Merok was one of the best doctors that I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

I simple couldn't have asked for a better doctor's visit.
Dr. Merok made me feel very comfortable during my visit and it was the first time I felt my health concerns were heard and addressed in a way that me feel both satisfied and like I was in good hands. Would highly recommend!

Dr. Merok had a great bedside manner and demonstrated compassion and empathy. He answered all of my questions directly and worked with me to create a plan for treatment with which we were both satisfied. He was very polite and really took into consideration my thoughts as he made suggestions.
This is an amazing Doctor. His reviews are stellar bc he's got the best of everything. His professionalism is not overshadowed by how much he cares. He's very thorough and a great listener.
Dr. Merok is a very pleasant doctor to interact with. He is very personable, knowledgeable, and thorough. He makes the patient feels very comfortable and relaxed while in the office. I highly recommend Dr. Merok to anyone out there looking for a primary care doctor.
Great visit, would recommend to anyone considering Dr Merok.
I don't like going to the doctor but Dr Merock is so nice and very comforting. Highly recommend him.
Arrived a little early for my appointment and was able to be seen a little early. Dr. Merok makes you feel like you are his only appointment of the day, it never feels rushed and he always makes sure he answers all questions and addressed everything!
He is the best!
Dr. Merok is great. Very personable and willing to answer all your questions and address all your concerns.
Great visit. Dr. Merok was very personable, professional, and worked to address my issues in a helpful, problem-solving way.
I always get amazing care from Joshua Merok! I'm grateful that he listens and explains what you have or may have, also treatment options available.
I absolutely love that Dr. Merok is my doctor. The entire experience is wonderful. He listens, follows my wishes, ask questions, and explains to ensure we are both on the same page. Healthcare is a team sport. He is the coach and you are the player. If you can't communicate with the coach or vise versa, then it is a lost cause. There is none of that here! Great doctor with a great staff!
Dr. Merok has a great repoire with his patients. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and always takes his time to answer your questions and explain whatever is going on. The rest of his staff is friendly and competent as well. I highly recommend him!
I was very apprehensive changing doctors because the primary doctor assigned to me had retired. But I was pleasantly surprised that Dr Merok was welcoming and showed a lot of empathy. He listened to understand your problem and never seemed to be in a hurry to finish with you. He made me feel comfortable enough to ask questions. And before he came in, the nurse who did the preliminary exam was also friendly and showed competence in what she was doing. Altogether a great experience.
I loved my first appointment. Dr. Merok was incredibly patient, personable, thorough and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend him! He addressed all my concerns and was even able to avoid a follow up visit with a dermatologist which is a pain with an HMO and referrals.
Was my first visit since we are new to the area. Dr. Merok was very thorough going over past history and addressing new issues. Communication was excellent and entire staff was helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Merok.
In my short time in Chicago I have visited many doctors. This was the most amazing experience I have had since I've moved here. Don't even mess around with going to Northwestern or any of their facilities. Dr. Merok listened to what I was saying, was respectful and had great bed side manner.
Amazing Doctor! Listened to all my concerned and worked with me to come up with a plan that I was comfortable with. Highly recommend!!
I've recommended Dr. Merok to all new people that love to the city needing a family doctor. Great doctor and listens well.
Dr Merok is a very thoughtful and thorough physician. He is truly interested in the well being of his patients. More importantly, he provided me with the right amount of care and information. This is very important to me as some doctors are either not communicative enough or condescending in the manner impart diagnosis. I am happy to have Dr. Merok as my primary care physician.
I always have a good experience at Dr. Merok's office. The staff is friendly and attentive, and Dr. Merok has such a personable approach that I am always at ease in his office and I know that I am being taken great care of.
Unfortunately, on my first visit to Dr. Merok, the staff at Michigan Avenue Primary Care chose to use a blood work service provider that was much more expensive than the alternatives covered by my plan at a significant out-of-pocket cost to me. I chose Dr. Merok based on his specialization in patient communication, but this was an unacceptable communication failure on his and his staff's part.
Dr. Merok was friendly and extremely helpful, both regarding the issue I went to see him about and several unrelated complaints I mentioned during the course of the visit. His staff was likewise friendly and helpful!
Very professional and speedy appointment - in and out, with everything addressed quickly and satisfactorily.
Joshua Merok is awesome, and i recommend him highly.
great doc, great communication, great bedside manner
Dr Merok is the best doctor I have ever had, he truly cares about his patients and their needs. Makes you feel so comfortable. Any issue that I am having I bring up with him and he talks about a few different options so you can decide the best route. Highly recommend Dr. Merok!!
I really appreciate the attention and efforts of Dr. MER OK and the rest of the staff at the office. They are great healthcare team.
I've been going to Merok for two years, and he is the best GP I've seen in 65 years!!
Excellent doctor. He is patient and makes me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend him to anybody.
This was my first visit to Dr. Merok's office but on leaving I felt compelled to tell the staff how happy I was with their service. I've never done that anywhere else.
He is a very knowledgeable doctor with a great bedside manner.
This my 3rd year with Dr Merok and his team. Very professional, personable and available on call or email for any additional questions, prescriptions etc. His office staff, nursing staff all are very professional, polite and service focused
He was great!
Dr. Merok was fantastic! He was so thorough with his answers to questions, had a great sense of humor, and went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed done. Despite that, I barely waited at all to be seen.
You won't be disappointed seeing this doctor. He's excellent and not at all condescending. He made me feel comfortable. I went in for anxiety and depression and have felt judged by other doctors, but this one was so kind.
Always very helpful. Excellent physician.
Dr. Merok is an increadibly talanted and professional physician. He is a great listener, who always shows his respect to patients and provides all the information about the treatments. I've being seeing Dr. Merok for 4 years and would never ever switch to anyone else.
Always a pleasure to have an appointment with him Its been a long time since I have had a doctor like him Great recommendation from United Healthcare.
I arrived two minutes early and was in the room within 5 minutes. Waited less than 5 for the doctor and less then 10 min after for a blood test. Everybody was personable, you can't ask for much more.
Great first visit. Everyone I saw today was helpful and kind. Changing doctors can be awkward but this office was very friendly and I instantly felt comfortable. Would highly recommend.
He is a very nice doctor and very attentive!
Staff was very friendly and professional; I barely had any wait time as I was still filling out paperwork. Doctor was patient, listened to all my concerns, and made me feel very comfortable. I also like the fact that he stays current with medical research and loves to share his knowledge.
Dr Merok is the best doctor I have ever had.
Dr. Merok is the best! He's very kind and has a great bedside manner. He takes his time to address any and all concerns you may have and ensures you fully understand. I couldn't recommend him enough.
Best PCP in my life
Fastest appointment I have ever had. I was arrived 2 minutes late, and was in the room before I had finished filling out my papers (I had previously visited Immediate Care downstairs). In and out in 20 minutes, and Dr. Merok was very nice. Proactively helped me fill out my prescriptions until 2017. thanks Josh!!
Dr. Merok and his staff were truly awesome. They all were very nice, polite, smiling, and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend this team and am happy to have my first choice be this awesome !
The best doctors vist I've ever had. I went to the front desk to sign in and before i got back to me seat I was called in. My appointment was at noon and i was out of the office by 12:25, and I got blood work and a urine sample done. Highly recommend.
Dr. Merok is as knowledgeable as he is friendly. I would recommend him to both friends and family.
Dr. Merok was extremely friendly and personable. I would recommend him highly.
Really positive experience. I was in and out within 15 minutes for a mole exam & biopsy, and Dr. Merok was friendly and knowledgeable.
As usual, this appointment was great! All of my concerns were addressed, made me feel comfortable, even when discussing uncomfortable situations. Highly recommend, I've been coming to him for about a year and am very pleased with the way he takes care of me. Far better than any other doctor (primary care).
Joshua is hands down the best doctor I've ever seen. I'm not someone that's too concerned about bedside manner (I'd much rather have a good doctor than a friendly one), so his outstanding bedside manner is a huge bonus! Where he really shines is in his troubleshooting and communication skills. I get frustrated that most doctors rely on memorization and use a "look up table" method of troubleshooting. Joshua has ACTUAL troubleshooting skills. He also has incredible communication skills, often bringing out a tablet to help educate you and ensuring that you understand what's going on with your health. I hope he's always available to be my GP!
Dr. Merok is awesome. I was worried about finding a primary care doctor that I wouldn't feel comfortable having conversations with about more sensitive medical topics. It is not a problem with him!
Dr Merok has been my primary care physician for a couple of years now. He is always on time to see me, has a great bedside manner, and always willing to take the time to answer every and all questions. The entire staff here is phenomenal, and I would highly recommend him to anybody.
I've been going to Dr. Merok for over a year and I absolutely love the attention and care I'm given. My wait time has never been more than 10 minutes, even when I was running late. I highly recommend Dr. Merok to anyone looking for a primary care doctor.
Great, super impressed!
I always have a great experience going to Dr. Merok's office. He is very friendly and so are the rest of the people working there. He went above and beyond by printing out information for me about in home exercises that will help prevent lower back pain which I occasionally have.
Dr. Merok is my favorite doctor I have ever seen. He cares about his patients and it's easy to see. He will be my doctor as long as I'm in Chicago!
Always prompt. Great Doc.
Dr. Merok was friendly, knoledgable, and generous with his time. His insights were reasonable and pragmatic - precisely what I was looking for in my health professional.
WOW - great doc! Very pleased with the care I was provided. I will be returning to see him. I would Highly recommend him!!
Great primary care provider. Addressed the issue that I came in for immediately, walked me through what was going to be done to reach a diagnosis, and closed out the appointment by making sure there weren't other issues to address. Solid visit, solid dude.
Dr. Merok is very personable and thinks comprehensively about patient care. He is a great doctor that I truly trust with my health.
Always the most professional and caring doctor is see! It's like see a friend or a family member, but he is my doctor. He is the best!
I've been going to Dr. Merok for three years now and he's the best. Incredibly personable, very willing to discuss any questions at length.
Great as always. Fast, concise, caring. Can't complain! A+
Dr Merok is very personable and friendly when interacting with patients. Very attentive to the patients needs.
Dr. Merok is great! He's my favorite primary care provider I've ever had. He is always very friendly, professional and makes sure you understand everything he is telling you. He always asks if you have any questions and really takes the time to make sure all your concerns are addressed.
Fantastic experience with Doctor Merok. Kind, helpful and informative.
The entire experience of my visit was easily the best of any doctor's appointment I've ever had. I was seen 15 min prior to my scheduled appointment. The staff was extraordinarily well coordinated, and my time with Dr. Merok (Josh, as he introduced himself) was efficient and thorough. I would recommend this practice to anyone, anytime.
Josh was excellent. I saw him for an annual physical today and he was thorough and efficient at the same time. He is very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable bringing up concerns. He is very knowledgable and up to date on the latest medical literature and studies. I left feeling at ease and that I am in great hands moving forward with him as my new primary care provider. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. I arrived early for my appointment and was taken back about 15 minutes early.
First time patient and was quickly and efficiently examined and sent on my way. Both the nurse staff and Doctor Josh were friendly, attentive and informative. Totally made the experience simple.
Dr. Merok is my absolute favorite! I've seen several doctors at Michigan Ave Primary Care and always recommend it as a convenient location with great doctors. Dr. Merok takes the time to answer all of my questions in full detail (with a master's degree in health communication you can bet I have a LOT of them). He takes the time to review your health history with you and makes recommendations based on what will work for you. Very personable and caring. Couldn't ask for a better doctor!
Dr. Merok is by far the best physician I have ever seen. He's patient and treats me like an actual human being unlike many other doctors. I never have a bad experience at Michigan Ave. Primary Care. It's truly an excellent practice
Wonderful bedside manner.
This was my 3rd visit will Dr. Merok, and every experience has been nothing short of exceptional. He is knowledgeable, professional and makes you feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him as a primary care doctor.
Great first visit! Very thoughtful, polite, down to earth, and provided valuable insight and attention to issues I had.
He is a fantastic Doctor, helpful, medically insightful, and cares about his patients. I really appreciate Dr Merok.
Great experience. Was very easy to schedule an appointment online and I was able to complete the patient forms prior to my visit. Waited less than 10 minutes before being seen by the nurse and then by Dr. Merok who was extremely nice and patient and made sure I was able to ask any and all questions I had. Very happy with my experience and finally have found a doctor in the city!
it was excellent
It was excellent, he always listens and always try to provide the best treatment possible.
I love Dr. Merok, he's super professional and very timely. He always takes my situation into account and asks detailed questions before prescribing something.
Overall good facility and staff. Doctor was courteous and professional. However, the payment was a little higher than I expected. I was in network and I still have EOB coming my way for a routine checkup.
Overall great experience as always. The only complaint I had was that the information I provided on Zoc Doc did not seem to make its way to my patient file. It wasn't a big deal since most of the info they collected last year still applied - I made a few changes to their record.
As usual, it was pleasant. Got in and out quickly.
Dr. Merok is an excellent doctor and I always have a great experience. I highly recommend him to anyone.
I scheduled an 8am appointment because I was hoping it would lead to a short wait time...and I was right. I was taken into the exam room at 7:50am and the doctor was in the room at 8am. Everything else went smoothly as well, but I only went for an annual checkup.
Great doctor, spent a good amount of time with me and was very understanding and sympathetic.
He's friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to answers any questions. Excellent!
I love my new Dr. Over the years I've had a few GP's and Dr. Merok is pleasant and takes the time to talk you. His staff is great too.
Dr. Merok is the most attentive and empathetic physician I've ever come across. He listens to his patients, works with his patients to come up with a plan of care and respects his patients' opinions and time. I recently moved to the east coast and fly back to Chicago just so that I can continue to work with Dr. Merok.
Great bedside manner; easy to talk to and share issues with. Proactive thinker. Happy to adopt him as my new Primary Care Physician!
I can't recommend him enough. His bedside manner is fantastic and really asks a lot of questions and wants to make sure you're comfortable.
Great! minimal wait time.addressed my issue and was very informative.
Doctor with best bedside manners.
Dr. Merok is an excellent clinician with a great bedside manner.
Dr. Morek is the best doctor I have seen. He is very understanding and knows a lot about the body. I would highly recommend him and his staff.
Very good.. Great doctor, great person.
I always have a great visit with Dr. Merok. He is personable and friendly, and I always leave his office with peace of mind about whatever it is that I am dealing with. I appreciate the prompt attention once I am at the office for my appointments, and the excellent service.
Dr. Merok is smart, engaging and personable. I trust him implicitly.
Best Dr. Ever!
He's so nice and easy going. I felt comfortable with him and definitely would keep him as my primary.
Best doctor I've ever had. Listens to my issues, isn't quick to diminish my worries/concerns. My appointment was at 11:00 and someone brought my back at 11:00 to take my bp and weight. The doctor was in the office almost as soon as she was done. Dr. Merok is fast and efficient without the feeling that you are being rushed.
After not having seen a doctor in several years I wasn't sure what to expect. Going to Merok for about three years now, I consistently find that he is always patient, willing to listen and is extremely professional. I would definitely recommend him as a GP.
Dr. Merok was great! He was really patient and didn't seem rushed to go to his next patient. Made me feel very comfortable. Highly recommend!
Very nice staff and educated about what I was asking about. There was no wait time (8:30 AM meeting).
Dr. Merok is excellent!
Incredibly thorough and attentive doctor and staff. First visit, but highly recommend!
Got me in early to my appointment. Great interaction and explanation of everything. Would recommend to anyone.
Excellent physician. Caring, knowledgeable, and a great listener. High recommend.
He's absolutely wonderful. Best doctor ever. Super kind, and willing to admit when something isn't quite working for you. Fantastic doctor and a really good guy.
Always feel better and less anxious after seeing him. He's the best!
Doctors are buried in their tablets when they see patients today (not all their fault). Dr. Merok barely looked at his, only to reference a number that I asked about. He cared about how I was feeling and concerns I had, not about making sure the computer gets the data input it needs. (I'm sure he does this after I leave). Highly recommend him!
The wait time was less than 5 minutes. The staff is friendly. I came for vaccination and was taken care of right away.
WOW! Dr. Merok and his team were excellent! This was my first visit and was welcomed to the practice with opened arms. Dr. Merok listened to my concerns and addressed them fully. I am confidant that is an outstanding physician and will look forward to returning soon.
He is simply the best doctor that has ever treated me.
Very highly recommended. Very responsive to concerns. Staff is usually superb and friendly.
As always, he makes each visit pleasant. He is the best primary care doctor I ever had....and I've had quite a few. Caring, thorough and professional.
Came in early and still was seen within half an hour! You can't go wrong seeing Dr. Merok.
Dr. Merok is an excellent physician. He is very thorough and takes time to discuss any and all issues/concerns. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Merok is the best primary care doc I've ever had. He listens, remembers and never makes me feel rushed. I always leave feeling less anxious and well taken care of.
I hadn't been to the general practitioner in several years due to moving around and putting off going. I am SO glad that I have found Dr. Merok! He is friendly, personable, and I feel that he has my best interests at heart, without being forceful, pushy, or scary. The technician that assisted with my blood work was also wonderful - I'm usually a big baby when it comes to needles, and he made the process smooth and quick. Thanks to all for a great visit!
Dr. Merok spends time with you and provides alternative, non invasive approaches that patient can manage with some discipline. Their overall office team is efficient & effective so everything from Blood drawing to other tests goes smoothly. Easy to book appointments online through ZocDoc
Professional and attentive, recommended him to a friend who also thought he was great. Big fan.
Fantastic experience, he was not rushed. Very genuine. Definitely recommend to anyone.
Dr. Merok is a careful listener, and a committed physician. He really listens to your needs and offers thoughtful advice.
dr merok is great.
Dr. Merok was very kind, patient and helpful.
Dr. Merock is the best! He has a great bedside manner, and takes the time to both listen to you as the patient and explain what is happening in terms that are understandable and relateable.
Great and on time!
Dr. Merok is a great physician. I have always disliked my Dr's for a number of different reasons and I finally found one that I really like. He is really nice, easy to talk to, and knows his stuff. I would recommend him to anyone.
My visit was excellent! I don't really like doctor visits and this one was especially arduous because I had to have several tests and immunizations to complete. Everyone was very patient and helpful, although I did wait a while in between procedures. If I wasn't moving, I would probably have made Dr. Merok my primary physician.
I felt that he really listened and his team offered the greatest level of professionalism. I have been searching for physician since I moved here to Chicago. I am pleased that I found a great team.
It was like no doctor visit I've ever had (in a good way). Dr. Merok and the rest of the staff were patient, courteous, knowledgeable, and didn't judge me for not seeing a doctor for 5+ years. Maybe I should wait for the bill before writing this review, but I would be fine paying a high premium for the experience I had today.
He's a true gentleman and scholar. Dr. Lewis
Very pleasant visit. Will definitely remember Dr. Merok for referrals.
Joshua and his team were very personable and made me feel very comfortable.
As always, Great Dr, Great Staff.
Dr. Merok is phenomenal. He has a great, friendly bedside manner and seems to genuinely care for the health and well-being of his patients. He's also very knowledgeable and asks great questions in order to best diagnose / assist in the care of his patients. As a bonus - I recently booked a quick check-up appointment, and afterwards a work meeting immediately following the appt was scheduled that I was unable to move. I outlined the situation mentioned upon arrival for my checkup, and Dr. Merok and his staff helped expedite the check-up so I was able to make my meeting. It's refreshing to see a doctor and his office make efforts to help patients in this way. I would highly recommend!
Dr.Merok is very knowledgeable, friendly, and great to talk to. He takes the time to explain everything and always has answers to follow up questions.
Dr. Merok has a wonderful demeanor and cares for his patients.
Wonderful, as always!!!
This was my first visit with Dr. Merok and it was really enjoyable. He asked great questions and listened well to my concerns. The entire visit was smooth and efficient and I left very pleased. I will continue to see him as my general physician.
Cannot recommend enough, personable, knowledgeable and professional. Literally no wait time.
He made me feel so comfortable for my first visit, and truly concerned about any issues I was dealing with. Looking forward to having him as my primary Doctor.
He took plenty of time to discuss any concerns I had and even suggested ways to save money on medication not covered by my insurance. Excellent bedside manner. Highly recommended.
So nice! So empathetic! I went in because of a bike/car accident and the team helped me navigate the insurance process. AND they have their documents online that you can access, save, and/or print.
I appreciate every time I visit that I never have to wait and I am seen right away. Dr. Merok cares about his patients and gives you the time of day to explain what's wrong. The office is always extremely clean. Going to the doctor does not have to be a terrible experience.
Great doctor, knowledgeable and relatable.
Dr. Joshua Merok is very knowledgeable and personable. He answered all the questions that I had and explained everything we did during my visit to his office very clearly. He takes the time to talk to the patient. I highly recommend Dr. Joshua Merok as a primary care doctor.
Been seeing Dr. Merok for at least 3 years---wonderful staff and great doctor.
He was very prompt and quick to identify the issue and treatment.
Once again another winner for Doc Zoc! Dr Merok was very thorough and took time to ask questions, answer questions and explain what the next steps would be. He came up with an appropriate treatment plan.
He is an Awesome Doctor. Always attentive and listens.
I recently moved to Chicago and needed to find a General Physician in the area. At the recommendation of a friend he pointed me towards Dr. Merok. He's turned out to be great. Making appointments online are easy and on time. They're always calling me to the back just as I'm finishing the generic/procedural appointment forms and once back in the consultation room, I don't think I've ever waited more than 2min before Dr. Merok has come into see me after his PA has taken my preliminaries (and he always apologizes for the wait...what wait? come on, 2min?). Josh has always been very friendly and personable, not only concerned with my physical health but also directing conversation towards gaining insight into my mental/emotional well-being. He definitely stakes a personal claim into his patients' care. I've never felt like just another name checked off the list for the day. Thankfully, I'm pretty healthy so my check ups have rarely lasted more than 5-10min and I'm in and out pretty quickly. His entire staff is also really great. All the PAs and staff members there have always been very friendly and personable as well. Anyone looking for a really great, seamless and convenient General Physician, Dr. Josh Merok and his team is where I'd point them.
I really like Dr Merok a lot He has great to deal with pleasant informative and helpful His staff has been nothing but professional and pleasant.
Dr. Merok was compassionate and knowledgeable when talking about your health is not always a comfortable issue.
Great appointment once again. Dr. Merok is always a pleasure to see!
Speedy, professional, courteous...all around great visit. Gave off a very friendly open book type of vibe
Great with the Kids - wonderful bedside manner!
good Dr. easy to talk too
It had been a long time since I have seen a primary care physician. He was excellent about letting me share any concerns I had as well as making recommendations based on my needs. I won't be hesitant to visit the doctor anymore.
I think he is an amazing Dr who listens to his patients and helps them understand what's going on with them. I definitely recommend him to anyone who wants a doctor who helps his patients and truly cares for their health.
The doctor is always very open to discussing your treatment options and is very open about his concerns.
Listened and genuinely concerned
Great visit as always from Dr. Merok.
I would say that he is the best PC physician I've ever been to. Wonderful bedside manner, listens, provides excellent patient centered care, always seems genuinely concerned and is always incredibly pleasant and nearly always exactly on time. He makes sure that patients needs are met and is readily available/accessible if a patient ends up continuing to have issues or needs to try a different method of treatment. He gets an A+++++.
It was great! Excellent physician, great bed side manner
Great doctor. Explained everything thoroughly and made sure I understood. Very nice guy and would highly recommend to my friends.
Always a quick visit with Dr. Merok. Highly recommend!
Good ambiance, kind staff and a polite doctor !
Dr. Merok is an excellent doctor. He was very insightful and gave me some great recommendations. His bedside manner is extremely nurturing and makes your feel so comfortable. I'd highly highly recommend him for a local physician.
Dr. Merok is hands-down the most caring and gentle doctor I've ever been to. He's intelligent and seems like he genuinely cares about my well being rather than being treated like I'm just a number.
Dr. Merok is very talented at explaining situations to his patients and letting them be a part of their health plan. I feel comfortable with him, which is especially important for someone who feels anxious going to see the doctor. While I would prefer to have an office that I can drive to and park by, I will happily drop off my car and take the train in to see him. Very satisfied!
Dr. Merok is a great example of good bedside manner paired with great clinical acumen. He doesn't make you feel rushed and talks through information in a thorough, digestible way.
Dr. Merok and staff were very friendly and made my entire experience pleasant.
Dr Merok is always very professional and kind. He treats you like a person instead of an assembly line. I highly suggest going to him. I was with my last doctor for 17 years and loved her but I moved to the city and needed a closer doctor. I'm very happy that I found Dr. Merok!
Great individual. Really listens to you and your problem.
Excellent bedside manor, barely any wait, overall great experience.
Very good doctor. Spoke with me on an even level, not talking down or obfuscating detail. I would definitely recommend him!
Just a good guy
He's great. Anytime someone in my office is looking for a doctor, I refer them to him. He listens and takes what you are saying into account, and never makes it feel like he's rushing to another patient.
I always enjoy seeing Dr Merok. He's very friendly, conversational, and empathic.
I got in quickly and Dr. Merok showed up right away as well. Great guy, explained everything up front and answered all my questions.
It had been at least 10 years since I visited a PCP, and medical settings tend to make me anxious in general. Dr. Merok's warm, patient centered manner immediately put me at ease. He was knowledgeable and confident in his recommendations. All of the staff members who assisted me throughout my visit were both friendly and professional. I'll definitely be back.
Dr Merok is an Awesome Doctor. I highly recommend him. Very attentive, knowledgeable and encouraging.
Extremely professional and courteous staff. I didn't have to wait for anything. Doctor Merok is fantastic. Highly recommend.
Dr. Merok is thorough and easy to talk to; he really cares about his patients, and I appreciate his responsiveness when I communicate with him by email. Very efficient!
Professional, knowledable and Efficient. Complete Physical in a hour. Fantastic!
He listens to you carefully and makes it feel like he really cares for you. Chatting is more of a discussion than he telling me what to do. Excellent doctor
I am very happy to have chosen Dr. Merok as my PCP. He is very patient, thorough, caring, and obviously very capable of his job. The facility is also bright and squeaky clean, filled with efficient and friendly staff. If only I didn't get my blood drawn the visit was as pleasant as a walk in the park.
This guy is just the best!
Great doctor. Very open minded and easy to talk to.
My visit was exactly what I was hoping for! I wanted to find a new general physician and I have definitely found him! Fabulous bedside manner and really caring.
Very happy with Dr. Merok and Michigan Avenue Primary Care. Efficient, friendly office that uses technology to make things easier. Dr. Merok is knowledgeable, patient and friendly, listens carefully, and then explains his medical advice.
Great experience, helped with all my medical issues, great listener. Highly recommend to anyone.
Dr. Merok was extremely professional, kind, and helpful. He made the experience very comfortable and gave me some great suggestions. This was the most positive medical experience I have ever had. I highly recommend Dr. Merok.
Dr. Merok was fabulous. He took the time to explain to me in layman's terms what was wrong, why the treatment he was prescribing would work, and what to do in the future to prevent the same illness again. My favorite part was that he explained the why and how, and treated me as an intelligent person capable of understanding medical concepts. He's funny, down to earth, completely non-judgmental, and an overall cool dude while still maintaining professionalism. Five stars all around!
I arrived early and was taken to a room immediately. Dr. Merok was extremely friendly, at ease, and interested in helping as much as he could. It was a great doctor's office experience!
Dr. Merok is a wonderful doctor that actually listens to what you have to say. He is very attentive and does not try to rush the appointment. I feel very comfortable discussing my various health concerns with him due to his great bedside manner. I'm confident in his knowledge as a physician and I trust him completely with my healthcare needs.
He's handsdown the best doctor I've ever seen. He takes the time to talk through things and I could tell he cares.
Favorite Doctor Ever!!!!!
Dr. Merok is a phenomenal doctor. He's very personable and has a great bedside manner, and very knowledgeable. He understands what questions to ask in order to properly identify the best course of action with all things related to personal health. I would highly recommend!
I have been visiting Dr. Merok for 3 years now and feel extremely comfortable discussing topics with him and trust his recommendations. I would highly recommend him.
I arrived 30 minutes early and I was taken back right away. I had plenty of time for extra concerns and questions about medications. Dr. Merok is by far one of the best doctors I have ever seen. This was my first appointment with him and I was treated as though he had been seeing me for years. He treated me as a friend, not like just another body. He made me feel comfortable right away. He is my primary physician as of today.
I didn't even get to write my name on my forms before they called me into the exam room. Friendly staff, good bedside manner, and understanding of issues. Recommended additional treatment and prescription written within 40 minutes.
This is by far the best Physician and Physician's office I've ever had to deal with. I am always left feeling comfortable and heard. The staff is very polite and tentative.
Dr. Merok listened and analyzed my case in a very professional manner. I am highly recommending on him and his staff member.
Dr. Merok was awesome. Decided to make him my regular doctor immediately after meeting him
He got straight to the point of the problem. He thoroughly explained to me what was going on and what to do to help me out. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed.
Dr. Merok always does an outstanding job of taking a caring and patient centered approach when meeting with me. I have been visiting his practice for 4 years now and would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a new primary care physician. His bedside manner is excellent and the support staff in the office is also very professional and personable. I have never had to wait long at his office and the office is well taken care of. One of my favorite parts are some of the extra goodies that his practice provides - like fresh fruit in the waiting room and other healthy snacks. Dr. Merok will take as much time with you as you need, explain positive and potential negatives to treatment options for your individual health care and is not afraid to tell you his honest medical opinion (in a respectful and caring manner). I highly recommend him and his practice to anyone!
Dr Merok is just amazing. He's compassionate but professional. I went in dreading the appointment but after leaving I felt better about my anxiety issue. Sign up with him. He's a gem!
Very approachable; patient and listened to me; provided details about my questions and conditions. Excellent professional mannerism
Great experience once again
Dr. Joshua Merok is a very personable, attentive, caring, and knowledgeable doctor who takes time to talk to his patients. My experience with him has been great so far, with no complaints of any kind to report. I feel at ease and very relaxed in his office, which is not something I can say about other doctors I have seen in the past. I highly recommend Dr. Joshua Merok as a primary care physician.
Dr. Merok is the best. He listens, he tests before diagnosing, and he actually seems to enjoy talking with his patients and figuring out what's wrong. While doing a good, thorough job, he's also kind and funny. I wish every doctor enjoyed his job as much as Dr. Merok does.
Amazing, I was in and out in an hour AND I got 2 visits worth of things done all in one. The office is clean and the staff are so nice!
Dr. Merok is a great primary physician. Helpful, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, very professional and a good guy. I'm a young professional in the city, new to Chicago, and am glad I was able to find Dr. Merok as a doctor.
Very professional, all he and his staff are very nice.
The doctor is very friendly and polite. The waiting area had a lot of magazines, snack bars and water . Clinic seemed very welcoming. I was checked in real quick and the doctor was really polite and addressed the issues patiently. I highly recommend this clinic and Dr.Joshua Merok.
Dr Merok is the best doctor I've ever seen. He's always on time, really listens to you, walks you through your options and has amazing beside manner! I highly recommend him.
Excellent, as always. Also, very responsive to messages and prescription requests outside of scheduled appointments.
Simply the finest physician I have ever had the pleasure of treating me...not only as a patient but practically a nephew
A very genuine doctor. I can't wait to continue with this office as an ongoing patient.
He is the best Doctor I have ever had!
Great experience. I was seen right away, and Dr. Merok was great. Took time to walk through the reasons for my visit, asked if there was anything else, and spent time understanding my history. Very knowledgeable about everything we discussed and he took the time to discuss various treatment options. Looks like I found my new PCP!
This was only my second time visiting Dr. Merok, but it was just as great as my first experience. He does a great job of being personal and listening to your issues while offering great advice and insight.
Dr. Merok took time to understand my concerns and was thoughtful in laying out an approach to address them. I was very impressed by the whole team.
Dr. Merok was incredibly helpful and happy to explain my results in depth. He's also great at communicating with other practitioners working with me. Much appreciated!
Awesome, caring, genuinely nice dude
Dr. Merok is a wonderful physician. Always on time and shows a great deal of interest in what YOU need. Very attentive and great listener.
Dr. Merok is extremely nice and attentive. He took the time to really listen to my concerns and consult with me on next steps.
Dr. Merok really listens to you, the patient, and is open-minded about working with alternative options outside of medications to achieve your health goals. He'd be your great partner in maintaining your health well being.
Great doctor, very engaged in making sure you get the best care possible. Just moved to Chicago and I'm definitely going to use Dr. Merok as my primary care physician.
Did not even get a chance to sit in the waiting room before I was called in. Dr Merok took his time to make sure all of my questions were answered. He takes personal interest in each one of his patients. Highly recommended.
I have been a patient of Dr. Merok's for almost four years and he is great. I would definitely recommend him.
As always, Dr. Merok was friendly, helpful, and quick!
I couldn't understand how there were so many great reviews; now I totally get it! I am so happy to have found Dr Merok. I went since we are in a new HMO plan but would love to stay with him even if we switch plans or insurance if I can!
Dr Merok is very professional and he explained me, in the best possible way, which is my problem and which is the medication the I have to use to solve my leg pain.
I would highly recommend Dr Merok! He is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable.
As always, Dr. Merok was amazing and helpful. I'm very, very lucky to have him as my physician.
I would recommend Dr. Merok to all my friends and family. He always handles all dealings with me with the highest levels of integrity! Thank you!
Very personable and knowledgeable. Normally I dread going to the doctor but I really enjoyed the visit.
Dr. Merok was and is the last of a dying breed of caring, patient, and kind doctors. He listens, plans WITH you, not FOR you, and makes it a point to ensure that you feel secure in the information and diagnosis provided. I recommend him to anyone desiring a pragmatic (see: doesn't just throw pills at the problem) and kind physician who is vested in the well-being of his patients.
Very impressed with the speed of my appointment. I am a new patient so i was prepared to stay a while registering etc. I was in and out within 40 minutes. I didnt feel rushed the Dr. was straight to the point. I would recommend this office to anyone.
First time visit, as we have just moved to the area. Very pleasant demeanor; I never felt the least bit rushed, and I was able to get complete answers to all my questions. I've already recommended him strongly to my wife.
Dr. Merok really listened to my concerns and provided me with helpful info and recommendations to address my symptoms/issues. He was also very thorough and even checked in with me before I left to make sure he addressed all my concerns. I would definitely recommend him to family/friends.
One of the best I have ever been to, he takes the time to make sure you are heard and is great at keeping it simple. I reccommend him to all my friends.
Great, I will be going back to see Dr. Merok. Very friendly and helpful.
Awesome experience. Very friendly and professional staff. Dr. Merok was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions/concerns that i had. I have finally found a Primary Care Physician that I will continue to see.
Dr. Merok was excellent all around. His bedside manner and his ability to listen–sadly a "big deal" these days in medicine–really made my visit not only pleasant, but enjoyable. He cared about the issues I was experiencing and didn't dismiss me as though I were merely a fly with an expensive insurance plan. I have been looking for a new Primary Care Physician and I've found him. But, I will say that no good doctor can do well without a team of well-trained professionals behind him and that's precisely what he has. From the front desk, to the nurse and technicians, everyone was friendly, professional, and highly competent. It was truly a great experience and I highly recommend this office.
He is extremely personable, and made me feel comfortable during the visit. Highly recommended.
Dr. Merok was great. Will definitely be back the next time I need to see a doctor.
Dr. Merok is thoughtful, analytical, and informed on all of the latest research. I'm very satisfied with the Michigan Avenue Primary Care team and recommend them to friends and colleagues.
Great experience. First pleasant doctor's office in quite some time.
Dr. Merok is very personable, and also incredibly knowledgeable. I highly recommend his services.
Dr. Merok is a fabulous listener, but my favorite thing is that he teaches people about medications and why he recommends some specifically for you. He is a great doctor - hope to stick with him for years to come!
Dr. Merok is excellent. He takes the time to explain things, learn about your medical and family history, and makes treatment or the condition of your health easily understandable on all levels, I left my first appointment with the impression that he is genuinely concerned for the health and well-being of his patients. He is extremely thorough, detailed oriented, and efficient. I am grateful to have found him and look forward to having him as my doctor for years to come.
He is an excellent doctor who know how to make his patients feel comfortable and secure
Doctor Merok was very professional and attended to all of my needs as a patient. He went out of his way to make sure all of my issues were addressed in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and I'm glad I found such an exceptional doctor.
Incredible, as usual! In my book, Dr. Merok and MAPC set the bar for quality, efficiency, and compassion!
Very good visit- did not feel rushed and he took the time to answer my questions.
My visits are always the same - punctual, friendly, caring, interesting. Dr. Merok is excellent and always helps me get to the bottom on my ailments, answers questions and the office follows up on my progress. A+++
Dr Merok is always friendly and helpful. Him and his staff treat you like a person and actually care. Highly recommended!
Dr. Merok is so professional and caring. He has truly excellent bedside manner. The staff was prompt, friendly, and my appointment was hassle-free. in and out!
I will make this very simple. He is the only doctor I would consider besides my gynecologist for any ailment. Dr. Merok is great!
It was great!
I usually don't submit reviews, but I truly cannot speak highly enough of Michigan Avenue Primary Care and Dr. Merok. I'm always in and out of the office on time (sometimes early), and Dr. Merok is one of the kindest, most personable doctors I've ever worked with.
Nothing else to say other than top marks! Will visit again and highly recommend.
My visit went great, not only was the Dr. Merok so pleasant to deal with but so were the rest of the staff. I can confidently say this is the most comfortable I've ever felt with a primary physician and plan to keep him as my doctor as long as I am in chicago regardless of insurance changes. Highly recommend! (I've already gotten my husband to sign up for an appointment)
Extraordinarily doctor -- particularly gifted bedside manner. Will be my primary care doctor for as long as I am in Chicago. I didn't expect to find the best in an immediate care facility, but I got lucky, and this is an example of what immediate care can be.
Dr. Merok was extremely friendly and helpful. He came in right away, explained everything very clearly, and made me feel completely at ease. Very happy with this experience!
Stellar! He's one of the best docs I've ever been to.
Dr. Merok has such an amazing bedside manner and really made me feel like I could be completely honest with him about everything with my current health and health history. Highly recommend!
A very comfortable and welcoming experience! Had no issues whatsoever. I admired the doctor's manors and knowledge of my condition. Would highly recommend.
Great experience!! Very professional and friendly.
I'm diabetic and have seen many doctors over the last years, and Dr. Merok has been one of the best physicians I've ever visited. He's kind, very personable, and is willing to sit and explain everything to you. Great!
Quick to get in, appointment didn't take long, and he was very helpful and knowledgeable. Overall, one of the best doctors visits I've ever had
Can't recommend Dr. Merok enough. He is extremely intelligent , thorough and compassionate.
The only downside with my appointment was that it was scheduled on ZocDoc for 2:00 pm and when I got to the office they told me that it was for 2:15. I rechecked the ZocDoc confirmation and I was correct, but still had to wait.
Probably the best doctor I've been to. Very knowledgeable and patient, with a great bedside manner. The staff was also very helpful and efficient. I was in and out (including blood work) in less than 45 minutes.
GREAT PERSONALITY. I wish I knew him four years ago i would have gone for my check up sooner . thank you Dr Merok.
The office visit was simple and quick. Dr. Merok made me feel very comfortable, even with a history of chronic "white coat anxiety." I believe he has just become my primary GP!
Finest Physician in Chicago
Great visit to the doc. They were calm and organized. I didn't feel pressured at all, as I have in other offices and they even helped me double check my insurance to make sure everything good to go.
Very good doctor -- great balance of professionalism and light-heartedness. Made me feel very at east --
Dr. Merok and the entire staff are wonderful. I've never been to a doctors office where literally everyone is so happy and nice. Dr. Merok takes the time to explain everything in a way that is very easy to understand. He has a wondeful bedside manner that is both professional and collegial. I am very thankful I made an appointment with him and will continue to see him from now on.
He was great, very friendly, apologetic for making me wait (although I waited less than I ever have at any other doctor's office.
My visit was great. I'll see him again next year.
Very, very nice - made sure to address any and all concerns I came in there with. His assistant was very nice as well. I am happy to have found a doctor who seems like he genuinely cares and I feel comfortable talking to.
Everything was excellent. He took the time to explain everything and answered all my questions. I felt comfortable with him as a physician and his professional demeanor was right on. This was my first visit and we will see how he follows up on the tests etc.
He is awesome. Made me feel very comfortable despite lots of difficult topics. Friendly and balanced doctor. Very helpful nurses and assistants. And the office is clean and well lit.
Great staff, kind hearted MD. Highly recommended!!!
I cannot say enough good things about this office and Dr Merok. After having anywhere from awful to just mediocre experiences with clinics and doctors in Chicago, I feel like I finally found the right fit here. Zero billing issues (and my insurance is notoriously difficult) the nurses and staff are very friendly and helpful and Dr Merok is truly a gem!!! If you are looking for a warm and upbeat Dr that really takes the time to listen to your concerns, I highly recommend you schedule a visit!!!
One of the nicest doctor's I've ever had. Very open to treatment options and has great availability. Good at explaining medication and medical terminology. All in all an excellent experience.
Josh was one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He was prompt (saw me 5 minutes early!), considerate, and thorough. He asked a lot of questions, listened to all my questions and concerns, and provided honest, relevant feedback. The nurses and other staff were all extremely professional and friendly as well - highly recommended!
Dr. Merok is great. He gives you the time needed to get all of your questions answered and has an unbelievable amount of patience. I highly reccomend him. Also a plus is the offices are very nice, bright and clean.
Fantastic!! I felt at ease as soon as I spoke to him. He is patient and explained everything. Left his office feeling reassured knowing I found a great doctor. Thanks!
Every experience I've had at Dr. Merok's office has been truly exceptional. I've never had to wait more than 2 minutes to see the doctor, which is particularly amazing given that I never feel at all rushed when we're together. His bedside manner is excellent, and he always listens and asks good questions before diagnosing or discussing treatment options. Very highly recommended!
Fantastic practice! Great customer service - everyone is incredibly friendly and professional - I love coming here! Dr. Merok is a superb physician - personable, knowledgeable, and caring.
As always, very professional and offered great, realistic advice.
Best doctor I've ever seen! Made me feel comfortable and was very personable. Also very helpful.
Dr. Merok was very approachable, understanding, knowledgeable and helpful. Enjoyed getting to know him and looking forward to him as my primary care physician.
Josh was a pleasure to see, made the experience much better than most other medical professionals I've seen, explains complex material in an easy-to-understand manner, and all-in-all was a joy to work with. Would definitely be revisiting.
Extremely friendly and genuine.
Dr Merok is a great doctor.
I think everything went well. Time between seeing the office doctors/nurses/specialists was a bit long but tolerable with a smart phone.
Excellent , easy to talk to and very receptive. Painless
One of the best doctor experiences I have had. Took time to review medical history and thoroughly answered all of my questions. Overall a great experience! Highly recommended!
Dr. Merok is by far one of the best doctors I've ever seen. He patiently listens to symptoms, and throughout the appointment explains everything that he is doing and how best to heal whatever ailment I've had. I always know I'm in good hands with Dr. Merok!
As always my visit was pleasant and painless.
Great doctor. Very knowledgeable and consultative, I'd definitely recommend him to friends or colleagues in need of a physician.
Very compassionate physician. He gave me as much time as I needed to ask him all of the questions I had. Excellent.
Dr. Merok has been my primary care physician for a couple of years now and he's been great!
Very professional and knowledgeable!
Pros: Great location right in the loop. A fresh, new office. Dr. Merok is very sincere and knowledgeable. He even brought a tablet into the exam room to show me pictures and help explain the issue I was having. The office was very flexible in rescheduling my appointment. Cons: NONE.
Couldn't be happier with my experience with Dr. Merok. Every appointment I have with him is a breeze and he makes you feel so comfortable w/ any and all situations.
Dr. Merok was empathetic, knowledgable, and able to give me realistic options and set me up with a viable treatment plan. He was able to fulfill all my expectations from the appointment in a professional and kind manner.
Dr. Merok provides me high quality care that is both astute and practical.
Excellent experience. Always listens and makes you feel as if your concerns are valid!
Dr. Merok is fantastic. What can I say, go see him and this group, they've really mastered treating a patient like a person and not a number.
Dr. Merok has excellent bedside manner and was thoughtful and thorough. The office saw me right away and let me complete the paperwork throughout the appointment rather than upfront, making it even faster than usual for an initial physical.
Dr. Merok and the entire staff were fantastic. I saw several staff members, one took blood, one gave me a booster shot, one took my vitals and Dr. Merok did his thing as well. Every one of them were extremely efficient and friendly. I haven't been to the doctor in a long time and was relieved to find Dr. Merok had excellent bedside manner. He answered all my questions and had some great suggestions for my day to day living. I highly recommend his office to everyone.
I've just seen him twice, and I can already tell he's the friendliest, most-accommodating, and best-listening doctor I've ever had. I'm very happy he's my primary care doctor now.
He was professional and easy to talk to. He was well informed on the issue and I felt at total ease throughout the whole appointment.
Dr. Merok is very thorough and demonstrates he cares about his patients by not rushing through a visit to get to the next appointment.
Absolutely the best doctor I've ever had.
Fantastic! Very personable, informative and friendly.
Great Doctor. Great Office.
