West Chester, OH |
Sadly despite this physician being likeable his practice & his office are less than. My 80 year old mother has a severe blockage and was to have surgery to clear it. 3 times this surgery was canceled due to "unexpected emergency with other patients." Even made it to pre op and prepped and ready to go to be canceled and sent home. Given date for 2 days later and a day before canceled too. We quit and went somewhere else. Office staff rude and uncaring as well. Looking into complaint medical board

I would totally recommend Dr. Merle. He made me feel at ease before surgery but was very open about what to expect. I did great and have been very active for a little over 3 years. He has a way of encouraging you to keep active after surgery.
