I saw Dr. Merkel for him to look at my hammer toes for future surgery he then told me after he sees me for 9 months then we can talk surgery. (Obviously just wants the money). He removed calluses from my foot which he used acid to remove after me telling him specifically not to use acid, which he then told me it was Novocaine that he used. A couple days after my feet started to peel so I called the office to ask what he used on my foot and they told me acid. I do not like that he lied to me.
