Patient Comments (3)
Streamwood, IL |
Extremely knowledgable and dedicated orthopedic surgeon. Identified the best course of action for my broken clavicle injury - in my case without need for surgery. I feel completely confident with Dr. Merk. In addition, the associated hospital, medical facility, and orthopedic department are top notch and among the best in the state.

I entered the ER with a tibial plateau fracture and within 24 hours was operated on my Dr. Merk. His professionalism is demonstrated through his high quality work as well as the time he takes to discuss concerns with patients. I have the utmost confidence in his judgement and capabilities.
in Chicago, IL |
I went to see Dr. Merk for an MRI of my knee- Instead, he unnecessarily removed a cast from my foot that was being treated by another doctor, refused to properly examine my knee and left me in excruciating pain for weeks with a cast that was determined to be in the incorrect position by multiple doctors and therapists. During that time, his team ignored all of my calls. By the time the hospital finally responded willing to help, my cast had already been removed by another doctor.
