By far and away this was the best most thorough appointment with a doctor I have ever had.
I did not at all feel rushed. Both Dr. Merati and [...] were very kind, supportive, with clear communication
Dr Merati is the best doctor I have ever seen in a multitude of ways. He is caring, and his bedside manner is stellar. He is also extremely keen and knowledgeable on his field of study. I have gone to about fifteen other doctors regarding this same issue in the past decade and have not had a better experience than this one.
Dr. Merati, his MD fellow and [...] the SLP were the most kind, thorough, and compassionate providers I have ever encountered.

I have always received the best care from Dr Merati. I am a [...] survivor of oral Cancer and I trust Dr Merati in decisions on treatments for my continuing side effects of survivorship.
My experience with Dr. Merati was incredibly good. I felt like he listened to me, understood what I was saying, explained things in ways that were easy to follow and understand, and treated my issue with a level of urgency and care that I had yet to experience In my efforts to find a solution for my Issue. He went above and beyond, finding a time to see me on a day when all of his colleagues were out of the office at graduation and following up with me by phone on a Saturday. I'm so grateful for all of this, and to feel for the first time in months that I'm not the only one taking this condition seriously. I would recommend Dr. Merati to anyone in need of speciality vocal care.
