Procedures & Treatments

Please be advised that Dr. Ira Merkel will be retiring as of August 2023.

Over the past 30 years, Dr. Merkel has been an integral part of our practice, prioritizing patient-centered care with his patients. Without your trust and confidence, Dr. Merkel would not have been able to pursue his passion for gastroenterology. 

Our care team at Digestive Disease Center of NJ comprised of Alexander Rapisarda, MD, Scott Aronson, MD, William Ferges, MD, and Anna Platovsky, MD will continue to provide compassionate, high-quality, and comprehensive care.
