From the moment I walked into his office I felt at ease. After a series of questions, tests and reviewing films , Dr Merola took time with my wife and I explaining the source of pain I have been experiencing for more than 4 years. Because of Dr. Merola I am now able to play with my kids and I have my life back....Thank You Dr

Dr Merola did spine surgery on me 4 years ago. Prior to his coming into my exam room for my inital consultation, i heard him tell amother patient that surgery wasn't necessary. That raised my comfort level immediately, knowing that he wasn't one of the surgeons who wants to put every patient under the knife. Throughout the process, he took the time to explain everything, and patiently answered all of my many questions. My surgery was a complete success and my recovery was surprisingly quick.
