Dr. Merchant was kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable, caring and supportive during my husbands appointment. He spent a very long time with us and was extremely thorough. He assessed a wide variety of symptoms and explained possible causes and asked questions to rule things out. He explained everything clearly and made us feel very comfortable. He even offered advice on questions to ask other specialists at upcoming appointments. We were impressed! Thank you Dr. Merchant!
