My 90 year old father scheduled for surgery for bladder cancer. He did his prep the night before, left house 5am, waited for hours only to be told Dr. Merrick not available & will call to reschedule. You do not do this to a 90 yo man.

Merrick has been very disappointing! My elderly father has been Mr Merrick's patient for approximately four months. Mr. Merricks inability to help my father with his urinary / enlarged prostate has been a disaster!! In the four months that we have started seeing Merrick my dad has been in either immediate care facility or an emergency room seven times. In these seven times three of them he had to be transported by ambulance. You never get to see Merrick. See you in 30 days is what you get!

Dr. Merrick is truly an expert in his field and is totally up-to-date with what is happening today in the world of urology..I have been a patient of his for over fifteen years and have never questioned how he has taken care of me!!! I truly appreciate that he is not an alarmist and has a very calming effect when he gives me a plan of treatment to follow. He came highly recommended by my personal physician, Dr. Paul Meyer, and the physician my wife worked with as a nurse, Dr. Caroline Wolfe.
