Dr. Mericle is a wonderful surgeon with amazing bedside manner. He treated me during a very scary time following an aneurysm rupture and subarachnoid hemorrhage. He took the time to explain everything to my husband and me. The staff at his clinic are professional and made the day fun even though I was nervous about my angiogram. I would trust him with my brain any day!
