Dr.Merianos is a great doctor! Our 15 year old daughter recently had a Bascom cleft lift surgery and had some bleeding complications in the recovery room. Despite her having to go back to the Operating room, we were so grateful that Dr. Merianos was able to alleviate the bleeding and lessen the pain considerably. Thankfully, she is recovering and healing well. He is smart, approachable and responsive. He is one of a kind. His staff were also very helpful and professional. We would highly recommend him! Thank you Dr. Merianos?? Sincerely, The Pawlowicz Family

Since my son was born prematurely with a heart condition, I knew both times he had to undergo surgery with Dr. Merianos that he was in potentially life threatening situations. I wouldn’t have trusted another doctor to operate on my son. Dr. Merianos treated my four month old son with the most amazing care, and I am forever grateful.

The thought of surgery on my 4-year-old daughter terrified me, until I met Dr. Merianos. He's extremely knowledgeable, experienced and quickly became my daughter's (and my) favorite doctor. He explained the types of hernias she had and his course of action to fix them, which he did successfully. He was easy to communicate with, even when my questions were laughable & never spoke above me in complicated medical terms. Most importantly, he was great with my daughter. She never feared her surgery.

So happy we found Dr. Merianos to perform our son’s circumcision! We were nervous about the procedure but working with him really put us at ease. We had an hour-long consultation where Dr. Merianos took the time to explain the procedure and answer all of our questions. He was so knowledgeable and kind; we were very confident in his skills. The procedure was quick and performed perfectly. My son’s penis is healing perfectly, and it looks great. During our follow-up visit he provided amazing care

Dr. Merianos recently operated on our infant son's hernia. At all points of contact, he was kind and answered our questions thoroughly and patiently. He responds to his own email and does so quickly. Overall, we could not have been more assured or had better experience.

Dr. Merianos was excellent during the whole process from the initial consult through my son's surgery and all the way up to the post operative follow up exam. He explained everything in detail and helped my and my husband to be as calm as possible. He was readily available at all times to answer questions we had. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Merianos is a wonderful pediatric surgeon. Aside from being an expert in his field, his bedside manner is excellent. He spent whatever time was necessary to thoroughly explain what medical issue was going on regarding my daughter's condition. He was very patient in answering questions and explained his answers in a clear manner. I felt like our daughter was in great hands during her surgery and I had tremendous confidence in Dr. Merianos' skill and judgement as a surgeon.

My one year old daughter was admitted to Weill Cornell pediatrics 08/29 two days after her first birthday. From Doctor Merianos bedside manner to his calm demeanor I cant explain how eased I felt. First time in the hospital for my daughter and he was very detailed and gave me so much information on what would happen and what’s going on. I wasnt Left out of the loop! I was Included in every decision that was made and that made me feel so comfortable. He’s a great doctor!!

Can't say enough great things about Dr. Merianos. He performed surgery on my son at 7 months old and everything went smoothly. He has a bedside manner like no other surgeon! Within minutes of our initial visit with him, I knew my son was in very good hands. He is thorough, compassionate, spends a great deal of time with you and ensures all questions and concerns are addressed. You can tell he really cares about his patients and families. Highly recommended by parents and his colleagues!

Dr. Merianos is so thoughtful--he really considers the whole family's needs, from easing a parent's anxiety about a child's surgery to comforting and making the child feel at ease. He is also very thorough while talking through surgery--from prep to post-op, I really appreciated the amount of time he spent with us, answering all of our questions and making himself available at any time.

Dr. Merianos recently operated on our daughter for an inguinal hernia. From the second we stepped into his office for the initial check-up, we felt like we were in good hands.

Dr. Merianos was the surgeon for my 14 year old son and performed an appendectomy. He was highly professional, thorough in his explanation of what was wrong and exactly how the surgery was going to go from start to finish to recovery. He was extremely warm with me and my husband and especially with our son. His team was the same. We felt we were in the best of hands at all times and feel so grateful to him.

Dr. Merianos is awesome. He had performed a laparoscopic surgery on our 1 month old son regarding a pyloric stenosis. He was truly professional, explained us the diagnosis conscientiously and what would be the process to fix it. He is very attentive, goes into details and make sure that you have all your questions answered. The surgery went very well and our son has made a full recovery pretty quick. Good skills and great communication, I would blind trust him again anytime!
