What People Say About Dr. Aziz Merchant, MD

He is an excellent Doctor and an excellent Surgeon. Before we met him around July, my mother had lost 30+ pounds of weight approx. in last few months. After we met him, he diagnosed it correctly and narrowed down the cause. He was able to do the correct diagnosis very fast and due to this he has to perform the procedure in a very short duration too, to prevent further loss of health and weight. The surgery was successful. It has helped my mother to start gaining health. In case of emergencies, Doctor Merchant has personally taken time out of his personal hours / off hours and returned our calls. He is awesome and a Nobel person. He and hist staff including nurses, office mgmt, are very professional and extremely courteous. They do not return any stone unturned, for the well being and care of the patient. I salute their sincerity and professionalism.

My experience with Dr. Merchant and UMDNJ staff was great. I had hernia surgery and a portion of my intestines removed for diverticulitis. Not only was the visits pre surgery reassuring, and informative but everything he told me about what to do in preparation for the surgery was on point. I would recommend Dr Merchant be given a top notch rating

Dr. Merchant fixed my hernias through minimally invasive robotic surgery. He is friendly, caring and professional. He explained well what would be done, followed through with it and my recuperation was very fast with no complications. Thank you Dr. Merchant and the wonderful staff from Rutgers Same Day Surgery department.

I was sick for months and when I went to Dr Merchant he knew exactly what my problem was. He sent me for a few tests just so he could see how he needed to proceed with my care. My surgery was preformed on July 11th of 2018 and as of today September 29th I have had no pain and am completely healed and have not had any problems, Dr Merchant and his entire staff and students were the best and I will recommend him to anyone who needed surgery as well as any I would need in the future. Thank You
