Dr. Merin is excellent. His staff and him are very caring and thorough. He caught my diabetes when my primary doctor who I have been going to for years didn't. After years of frustration and feeling sick with all the classic (you have diabetes signs) I took upon myself to my the best diabetes doctor in the city of San Antonio and did. Thank you doctor Merin for saving my life!

Extremely intelligent and beyond compassionate. He comes off as a loud New Yorker but he is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He saved my life...need I say more? PS Anna and Audrey (his sweet wife) who work in the office are sooo sweet and always helpful.
