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. He was caring and kind and spent a lot of time getting to the bottom of it over repeated visits. I am doing well now thanks to Dr. Merok's diligence.

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.
