She knows what she's doing. Very nice and will take the time out to explain everything to you. Not super talkative. I would recommend her.
Hollidaysburg, PA |
My appointment with Dr Merbs went very well. After having reconstructive surgery for a malignant tumor, I was able to see Dr Merbs. Her demeanor was reassuring and calm. She concisely explained what she could do and discussed potential risks. My wife and I both knew that she was everything and more that Hopkins surgeon could be. The surgery went very well and although I had to drive almost 200 miles to see Dr Merbs, I would travel 20,000 miles to have her expertise again.
