Patient Comments (1)
in South Hadley, MA |
My name is Cathy Rigali. I live in South Hadley, Mass. Dr. Merton cared my dear friend Holly Bresnehan. He provided a compassionate end of life experience for Holly and her team of friends and family. Dr. Merton is not only a knowledgeable physician, but possesses a kindness and genuine honesty to deal with the hardest of issues: Death and Dying. We need more physicians in the field of oncology who are not afraid to let go when the time is right. With Deep Gratitude, Cathy
