Patient Comments (1)
in Saginaw |
My dad (86 yrs) saw him mid-February. TAVR was recommended & the perquisites for surgery. We were told his office would contact us to arrange appointments. Today is 3/9/17. My dad, his physical therapists, & I have tried to contact Dr. Mercado. No one returns our calls. As a last resort, we went to dad's primary care facility. Turns out Dr. Mercado does not use electronic health records. Terrific. So, we can't contact him, & he doesn't leave records for ensuing medical care.
