I like this dr.

For me she has only done routine testing for my conditions. Never felt like it was overdone. Usually very prompt. I have a friend that waits usually 1-1/2 hours for her dr.

Dr. Merlo is a very knowledgable doctor and intelligent person. I trust her with my health issues. She at all times has treated me with respect and compassion. She takes her time her at each visit and never seems to be too busy to listen to me or to explain what is going on in my health situation.The Dr.'s nurses, seemingly taking their cue from her, are professional, friendly and caring.I am a most fortunate person to have Dr, Patricia Merlo as my Doctor.
