At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Very easy to talk to and explains everything thoroughly. Checks to see if I have any questions and encourages me to contact him if I have any questions. Was patient and relax and made me feel like I was in experieced hands and confident of the whole Northwestern Team
This was my first meeting with De. Merkow. Dr. Merkow was well prepared, providing lucid and throughout information about my condition. He listened carefully and answered my questions thoughtfully. He was very professional and courteous.
Dr. Merkow is a total professional. He has the ability to make complex issues simple. If you combine that with a gentle bedside manner and total command of his area of medicine there is not a lot more to ask.
Dr. Merkow has a remarkable ability to relate to his patient, though we have never met in person. He has a warmth and empathy that inspires confidence and an ability to explain medical diagnoses with clarity and reassurance. Though my test results were fortunately good, I imagine that if he had to explain more serious outcomes, I would still feel comforted by his manner.
I love my Dr. Merkow, and all professionals that care for all patients here. Their knowledge, kindness, understanding, and professionalism. From the doctors to house cleaning. The whole institution cares and it shows.
His ability to communicate what is known about my condition and what steps should be taken was assuring. I feel benefited tremendously from Dr Merkow's advice. I also benefitedand his allowing me to bring a family member into this discussion In a three way call.
Doctor Merkow was comprehensive in explaining every thing from soup to nuts. He was emphatic, and kind while not sugar coating the situation. He made me feel like I was a human being and not a Porsche payment. I feel he would give me an honest evaluation on how to proceed.
