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.

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'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.

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!
