Dr Merkatz saved my life. I suffered from a rare life threatening condition that went undiagnosed for 7 yrs by 6 different cardiologists. Dr Merkatz reviewed my history in detail & proceeded to diagnose my disease. I had the life saving surgery I required. The medical profession needs more physicians with the integrity intelligence & empathy of Dr. Merkatz. I speak not only from the perspective of a patient, but also as an RN with many years of experience in critical care.

I would NOT recommend him, because (1) he didn't answer my question that I brought to him: why was breathing harder walking uphill -- was it the asthma or the heart; (2) he didn't explain the tests he ordered, why he was doing the tests that he was doing, nor what the tests told him; and (3) he strung out the appointments over several visits (I specifically heard staff say to schedule another visit that insurance would pay more) when he could have done it in two visits.
