How likely are you to recommend Dr. Merola?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Merola can be somewhat difficult to get an appt with (and the wait is rather long once booked), but this clearly is not of his own personal doing (or his “fault” by any means). If anything, I believe it simply speaks to just how “in demand” he is (and what a great doctor he is). He has always been quite thorough in his appts. (not something to be taken for granted), has patiently answered all my (sometimes annoyingly numerous) questions, and has followed up with my other doctors in his dept (/related depts, ie immunology etc). I’m very grateful to have found Dr. Merola and to count him as one of my doctors. Unfortunately, I’ve found it to be all too uncommon these days to find a doctor that genuinely appears to have your best interests at heart and in whom you can trust (especially/“even” in the context of some not-so-insignificant health issues). I count Dr. Merola among the few doctors I have that DOES exude these qualities, however, and for that I am infinitely grateful!
