A Wonderful Doctor

I was treated by Dr. Merlin in 2008 and received the best care I could have ever hoped for. He is a very kind and caring physician and was most knowledgeable about my type of cancer and the recommended treatment. Even though Dr. Merlin released me from his care in 2010, he has continued to stay in touch with me and recently contacted me after I was hospitalized for a possible late-occurring side effect from my treatment. He is a fantastic doctor who truly cares about his patients.

Dr Merlin is a caring and considerate physcian! I have been in his care almost 2 yrs - after treatment, and find him to be knowledgeable, interested and very human - when dealing with me and others who are handling their prostate cancer issues. I highly recommend him to any and all who have to face this illness.
