    I’m shocked that Dr. Eugene Merecki is not on the list of top doctors. In my opinion there is none better.

      Hi Robert, I am happy to say that Dr. Merecki is on the list; he is listed among the top primary care doctors for both cancer care and patient satisfaction. I am happy you are so happy with Dr. Merecki and felt compelled to share with us. All my best! -Dr. Bennett
