12/21/18 - My mom had an aneurysm surgery & AV procedure in 2015. The surgeon did an exceptional job; however, no one has bothered to follow-up with her since 2015 to my knowledge. It would be a good clinical practice to reach out to her since the surgery left her with loss of vision in her left eye. My mom just mentioned a few weeks ago that she has not heard from anyone from the neurosurgery. I would not recommend they follow-up with former patients. Patients have feelings too. Thank you. FS

The office workers are just as ineffective to get you answers as the doctors are to give you answers. They don’t make appointments in advance, they tell you to wait til closer to the time, and then it takes three weeks to get through the the office to finally make the appointment. Absolute worst experience. I’ve been waiting two days now to hear a report from a doctor about my broken neck!!! I do not recommend this office for anyone for any reason, other than to waste time!

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a devastating, debilitating condition. As a nurse, it was difficult to do my work and take enough medication to keep the pain under control. Eventually, the medication was useless. The horrific pain ruled my life, until I found Dr. Robert Mericle. In 2007, he performed MVD surgery for me. Usually, Trigeminal Neuralgia affects one side, It affected both sides of my face. I'm thankful to God & Dr. Mericle! Pain free, 11 years now!

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!
