He completed his Urologic Surgery Residency at Jefferson University and joined Midlantic Urology immediately thereafter. A talented surgeon, Dr. Merriam chose Urologic Surgery as his specialty as it allows him to utilize his surgical skills and build ongoing relationships with his patients. His goal has always been to help improve the health of his patients and his community. He focuses on providing and expanding, the options for less invasive treatment modalities for diseases of the prostate and kidney. He believes in a collaborative approach to solving problems and in making sure patients understand, and participate in, the decisions surrounding their health.
