Dr Merola is a nice guy and a superb physician. He immediately knew what my diagnosis was and carefully explained it in a way that i could understand. It was very reassuring for me to listen to him. He did a superb job on a delicate biopsy for me. I didn't feel any pain at all. I completely trust this doctor!
