Review for Dr. Haracic

Dr Merlo is one of the best oral surgeon. He removed my wisdom teeth a few years ago and just recently did my dental implant. Dental implant was nicely done and had no problem, no pain afterwards, only some soreness.

Skarlett Jun 28 2022

Review for Dr. Merlo

With a torn tendon in my arm and the possibility of surgery, Dr. Miller suggested foregoing surgery because of my age (77) and activities, clearly explaining the tradeoffs and the likely outcomes of the options. I greatly appreciated his conservatism and clarity.
