Dr. Avraham D Merav has the following 3 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
  • Surgery
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

If one tried to create one's idea of the ideal doctor by combining the traits of skill, compassion, conscientiousness, good humor, modesty, and commitment to excellence in one human being, it would seem an impossibility in today's world. Yet he exists in the very tangible presence of Dr. Avraham Merav. It became apparent to me in a very short time that I was in the hands of an exceptional surgeon. It is one thing for a doctor to have a vast wall of degrees and accolades with a very sucessful practice, but for that doctor to also have incredible people skills and emit an aura of warmth and caring is quite another. I feel fortunate to have had just this man perform my thoracoscopy, the brilliant and beneficient Dr. Merav.

Doctor's Response

Clearly written by an angry, unhappy person who got the wrong impression of me from a very limited contact. My files are bulging with letters and cards from patients , men and women, who praise my kindness, humanity and compassion, not to mention my professional skills and dedication. If I offended this one person, I am sorry and appologize. I have been a Doctor for almost fifty years and would not be working as hard as I do if it were not for the appreciation and gratitude of my patients.

Dr. Merav did lung cancer surgery (completely successful) on me. He's simply the best surgeon, doctor, and person. I suspect that if our relationship were social, we would find that our worldview, values, and sense of humor have much in common.
