I had a follow up appointment with Dr Mercado after leaving the ER for a kidney stone. He was very attentive and took the time to answer all my questions even though I was his last appointment of the day. I was very impressed and happy with my visit. Will definitely use him as my urologist in the future.

Dr. Mercado is always very professional. He is appropriately personal in getting to know his patients and help to find what best works in their treatment plan. Also, he considers patient costs in terms of working within their respective insurance constraints and/or working on a cash basis for prescriptions.

This was a first visit, new patient, second opinion appointment. Dr. Mercado and his team were AMAZING. I had seen 3 other doctors, including another urologist, been to an ER and no one could help me and couldn't relieve my symptoms and basically told me they didn't know what to do. I actually walked out of the ER and the other offices feeling the same as I walked in. Dr. Mercado listened to my concerns and I explained all of my symptoms and he immediately came up with options and told me exactly what was going on. I left the office feeling awesome and happy to have options for my condition. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone.

Beautiful new facility. Somebody is making a lot of money. Looks like expensive hotel.Dr Mercado is new for me. My previous doctor there was probably excellent doctor and had 3 biopsies over the years. I switched because he was always in a hurry. I felt like handcuffs were need to keep him in room.Mercado is different. Yes he’s busy but you don’t get sense he could leave any moment. Truthfully I’ve seen Mercado only 3 times but I sense he’s smart, educated well and young enough to be up on latest techniques,etc.Plus I like him from little time spent with him.

Had prostrate cancer surgery. Original schedule date was canceled because Dr. Mercado was told that robot monitor had a line in it with some distortion by the surgeon that used it in the morning so he said we should reschedule. Two weeks later all went as planned and I no longer have a cancerous prostrate. He explained just about to the tee what was going to occur. His surgery skills have to be really good because I didn't have any pain or too much discomfort. Dr. Mercado is the best.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Mercado for two years now. After a horrible experience with kidney stones and bladder pains, Dr. Mercado has helped me manage my pain and listen to me. He doesn’t just throw around perscriptions and move along. He listens and tries to pinpoint the problem and give the best option to fix it. He’s really personable and I consider him not only my doctor, but friend. I 100% recommend him!
