What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Merkel, MD
Reply
Dr Merkel was my primary provider for many years when I lived in Fort Collins. It's not always easy to find a good doctor, especially in this age of "volume medicine." Dr Merkel is great though. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great doctor.
