My mom was diagnosed with Leukemia type all in June 2013. Meeting Dr.Merchant was one of the best things to happen to us. He is a great doctor and I'm glad he treated my mom. She was going to be 2 years cancer free on Jan 28 2016 but unfortunately she passed away from other health complications. Dr. Merchant along with Raquel Caldera and their nurse Ashley helped my mom a lot throughout years and my mom and I were very grateful to have them.
