Dr. Ayub A Merchant has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

bed side manner?

It took the good doctor a full day to tell me the results of the tests when he knew them immediately. He did not talk to me, the patient til the next day. His bedside manner is lacking. The procedure went well. The next day I was to be released and it was 3:30 before it happened so I was charged another day in the hospital.My insurance company really likes that.

Dr. Ayub Merchant

I have IBS and reflux disease. Dr. Merchant is my Physician of choice. He is thorough, knowledgeable, kind, gentle and answers all my questions. He takes the time to explain things to you in a manner you will understand. His nurse Taylor is so kind and understanding. When I had a problem, she called the next day to see how I was doing. The staff is great also. If you choose Dr. Merchant you will not be disappointed.
