Patient Comments (2)
in Union, NJ |
Went to office for a consult. Paid normal specialist co-pay. 5 months later being told that they billed our insurance company as if this doctor's office visit in their shabby little split level building was an out patient hospital visit. Have spent two weeks now trying to contact their office. You either get a busy signal, immediate disconnect, or an answering service that assures you they will be back after lunch. Don't go here for any reason. They can't be trusted.

My daughter saw Dr Merkin for tremors and neirocognitive symptoms at the referral of her treating doctor. Dr. Merkin was rude, dismissive and failed to actually get to know they presenting complaints. As my daughter is often. In a cognitive fog and therefore obviously a poor informant on her medical history, I came to the appointment with her. Dr. Merkin very curtly told me to stop giving information and made her talk for herself. we had to start all over with a different doc!!
