Two Stars

The office is nice and the staff wonderful, the doctor not so much. I found him quite arrogant. When I started to tell him my problem he said he "didn't have all day". He had little advice, and "no further plans". I called with a question, but am still waiting for someone to call.

Upper GI Exam

Dr. Meriano is a very down to earth, cool headed doctor with extremely good bedside manners. When I had stomach pains back in October, he accurately diagnosed a H Pylori infection. Once off the treatment he was flexible and listend to my symptoms and agreed with an Upper GI endoscopy as the next steps. He then diagnosed me with gastritis and hiatal hernia with reflux. He called me personally to explain the details of the endoscopy and assure me that the results although not good news, we had a plan to treat it and contain it moving forward. his bedside manners are impeccable!
