      I have seen Dr Mermelstein after seeing two others Pulmonologists who were also excellent, Dr Mermelstein reminds me of the way Doctors used to treat Patients, not starring at a computer and barely seeing you the patient. He was kind, very thorough, easy going, takes time to listen and answer your questions. I would highly recommend him. I can say I was very pleased and felt confident about the care I receive from him.
