Dr. Merkulov's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Merkulov "I am the Section Head for Women's Imaging and Associate Professor of Diagnostic Radiology at UCONN Health"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Merkulov "To me, the definition of professional competence is the habitual and judicious use of communication, knowledge, technical skills, clinical reasoning, emotions, values, and reflection for the benefit of each patient and the community which I serve. I apply these principles to every patient interaction. In addition, I constantly try to build on my prior performance and exceed it as I "practice" medicine. The overarching goal is to deliver quality care and improved patient outcomes. My efforts in this regard have gained notice and earned the respect of my colleagues and peers. As a result, in 2012 and again in 2014, I have been honored with the UConn Health Center Annual Medical Staff Award of Excellence. "
