One of the absolute best doctors I've ever had. He listens attentively, spends as much time as necessary to answer any and all questions. So I've seen Dr. Mercier about 25 times, for two major problems. The 1st was a pulmonary embolism (blood clot), Dr. Mercier's prompt attention literally saved my life. The second incident was acute myocarditis (inflammation of the heart). He showed up at the hospital with my file from 7 years earlier. Collegeville office is much better than Einstein office
