"I first met Dr. Merola in 2006 during his orientation. he was not only professional, but also genuinely nice. He talked about the good the bad and the possiblities of ugly. He spoke about the possiblities bad and good. He also made everyone feel comfortable, especially when it was time for Q&A time. I also have to say alot about his support staff, especially his assistant Colleen. She has always been thoughtful, caring, and attentive; a very good reflection on Dr. Merola's office. Throughout the other one on one sessions that I have had with Dr. Merola, he has always been very down to earth, forthcoming when I've had any questions or concerns....I have nothing but all GREAT things to say about Dr. Merola. Wish me luck my surgery date is March 19, 2007."
