Dr. Arnold tried to pull a fast one on a Retired, Disabled Nurse Not at all impressed by a Doctor who insists on procedures that are contraindicated for certain patients and told me not to believe the surgeon who saved my life and told me no more colonoscopies.This Physician is a typical GI Doc.

I have been seeing Dr. Merin for years. He is the only GI doctor that has ever taken the time to talk to me. Other GI's just keep setting up tests and I only got to speak to their assistants. Most of his staff are nice and Jean the scheduler is terrific. Be on time - He is never behind.

DR. Merin dumped me as a patient for no reason.

Dr. Merin has been my doctor for 3 years. I am very thankful to have him taking care of me! Dr. Merin is very kind and caring. He listens to me closely and then together we decide on what would be the best course of treatment. I am currently feeling the best I have felt in 10 years. Dr. Merin has personally called me with test results or because I simply left a message asking a question. His staff are friendly and efficient. I feel he is an outstanding doctor.
