Amazing Doctor

Dr. Mermelstein is a very thorough doctor and he took the time to listen to me. Nowadays the way things are for a doctor to take so much time with me to answer all of my questions and explain everything to me means a lot. His bed side manner is excellent and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Baby

Dr. Mermelstein is an outstandingly excellent Dr. He treated me for a C1 fracture that could have left me paralyzed or dead. I was beyond lucky he was the on-call surgeon at the hospital I was taken to. He saved my life & returned me to full functionality. I practiced dance & physical training & am able to do so again after I healed. He is kind, responsive, truthful, empathic. Can't say enough great things about him. Wholeheartedly recommend him. Some front desk staff were hard to deal with- somewhat rude & not too helpful but it's worth it to see this great Dr.
