Of note, Dr. Markely called me at home to let me know the results of my sinus scan and we discussed a treatment plan. I so appreciated his personal phone call and timely results. I have already recommended him to friends and family if they are in need of

At the end of my visit with Dr Merkely, he said he would order a scan of my sinuses, and that if I had the time, a walk In scan service was available In the next building. This was extremely helpful as I was able to get this imaging done on the spot.

It's not that Dr. Merkley doesn't care. It's that he doesn't remember--maybe too many patients? . Overall I'm feeling frustrated, but that's not really due to this specific visit, aside from him commenting that I ask a lot of questions.

They were very informative and kind.

Dr. Merkley is the model for patient-centered care.

Dr. Merkley was great. The purpose of the visit was to get a second opinion on a problem I've been having with my hearing. he did a great job reviewing my treatment to date, and identified an additional possible diagnosis that hadn't been previously noted

Dr Merkley's knowledge, thoroughness, and kindness was appreciated. Great doctor

His manner was excellent. The potential explantations made sense. The only negative is I'm not sure what the path forward is or next step is after the current one. I'll get in touch with them.

I thought he was really professional and I had got my days mixed up and I was supposed to go the day before and he made time for me anyway and I thought that's really impressive to me that a doctor will fit you in anyway. I’m really impressed with him.
