I have been a patient of Dr. Merker for many years and I consider myself really lucky to have found such a wonderful and caring doctor, he and his staff are amazing kind and treat all his patients like family. Once I told my sister about him she became a patient and now travels all the way from the Bronx for her appointments, Now my sister myself and my wife are all patients of his and we could not be happier, It is not often you can find a doctor that takes the time to listen and make real decisions about our health without making you wait for hours in a crowded waiting room. We are all more blessed to have a doctor like him......

I have been Dr Merker’s patient for many years. I just celebrated my 89 th birthday. He supervised my treatment for many decades of various illnesses. He always gave me the time and careful concern and his breathe of knowledge is startling. I think It unusual in today’s medical environment. I can think of no primary physician I could recommend more highly.

I've been a patient of Dr. Merker for over 15 years. He's very thorough in his care, listens to the patient and works to find solutions. We have a good rapport and I trust him to guide me in my medical decisions. I highly recommend his Concierge practice as well.
