Very down to earth and understanding. Instead of preaching, he works with the patient to get best results. Doesn't overlook any concerns, he explains everything in detail. He also stays after hours if a patient needs additional help. Nicest and greatest Dr I have and will ever meet!

Have been using Dr. Merker for over 25 years. He is very thorough, has a pleasant manner follows up and exudes confidence. Had several colonoscopies and endoscopies over the years. Entire staff is very professional. Would highly recommend.
