Dr. Carlos A Mercado has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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.

One Star

Beware, he sends in a Nurse to evaluate you and then he shows up for 1 min and is out the door. I paid to see a Doctor, not a nurse. He is a very good doctor if you actually get to see him. He should be reported for charging a doctors visit when the nurse does all the work and he only talks to you for one minute. If you want a better doctor see one of the other two in that office.
