Doctor refused to write a new prescription for lost test strips in the middle of this pandemic. She told me to go buy them. I very limited income and can not afford to purchase the strips. I have to wait 23 days for insurance coverage. It’s too soon to refill prescriptions.

Came to doctor for concerns about dark areas on my face. I expected an examination of my skin, but never received one. I don’t even think physical contact was ever made. Doctors shouldn’t rely on a patient narrative. Do the job—fully.

I was recommended to Dr Merlino because my generator was running out of juice.. He explained everything that I wanted and needed to know.. If I could give a rating of 100 stars, I'd give him 1,000.. The staff at the office took care of EVERY question I had..

Dr. Bhalla is amazing kind and caring. However his nurse Victoria is a nasty person. She makes me feel like I am stupid. She also hurt me very badly when drawing my blood. if you go there and need blood drawn ask for someone else because she is dangerous. Beware.
