Can anyone tell me what happened to Dr. Mercer? We have called and called and it just keeps saying the phone is disconnected. No one seems to have any info. My daughter sees him every six months and it is time for her to see him. I don't know what to do? There was nothing in the newspaper (I called them) and nothing in the mail or no phone call saying he would no longer being seeing patients. He is an adult and child Neurologist. I am worried can anyone tell me anything? He is such a great doctor...we love him!! Just don't understand what happened or where to go now. My daughter has epilepsy. Thanks for any help.

I called his office Monday & there was a message stating the building owner had changed the locks on the building & they are not able to answer phone calls, retrieve messages or write prescriptions. He have a name & phone number to call & complain to... Something to do with the MRI pp that they shared their office with. Well now today the phone is disconnected. Not sure what is going on but hope he gets everything worked soon!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Mercer's for over twenty years.
Don't know what exactly happened to him, but I do know that it is fishy his doors got locked without him even knowing it.
Are there not laws restricting this type of activity when a Dr. and patients are involved? I would think there is some sort of standard procedure for contacting one's patients about practicing changes within a MD's office, but who knows?...
I have asked other physicians/neurologists around town, and nobody has a clue. Somebody did tell me Dr. Mercer had a heart attack about a year ago, but I doubt that has anything to do with this.
He's the coolest doctor I've ever had, albeit a little loopy. Medication is almost out, and I am running out of options.
On the flip side, I war referred to Dr. William Rogers MD. He does some of the same stuff as Mercer, but at this point its a last resort.
I have folks looking into the matter, and I find out anything new I will post here guys!

Thanks everyone!! If I hear anything I will let you guys know also. I pray he is well!! He has became more than just a doctor to my family...he is more like a compassionate friend. He seen my husband when we thought he had MS and was scared to death!! We left his office feeling better than we had in months. My daughter was seeing him for her childhood epilepsy now she is an adult and I still only trust Dr. Mercer with my families care!! Believe me we went to doctors before we found Dr. Mercer and no one is like him and cares like him!! He has also treated me and gave me my life back. Doctors like Dr. Mercer are not easy to come by. Hope we hear he is back soon!!

I checked with the State Board of Medical Examiners today and whatever the problem is it is NOT related to his medical license, etc. I'm an attorney. In landlord/tenant disputes the landlord almost always has the upper hand to "lockout" a tenant for various reasons. When this happens it is generally done at night so that the tenant doesn't have access to anything in the leased space, such as phones, computers, etc. Many times these issues are resolved and the doors are open again. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS BEING LOST OR DESTROYED OR KEPT BY THE LANDLORD. Hopefullyy this will be resolved soon. I like Dr. Mercer a lot. He genuinely cares about his patients. I drive from Dallas to see him.

UPDATE:

The leasing company called me yesterday afternoon and informed me that Dr Mercer and them had come to an agreement on said lease.

He has been given a key and is now permitted access to the office.

Dr Mercer should be up and running come monday morning, along with the phone, server etc,.

He has moved locations. His number is the same, he just had a problem with the agreement he had made with the people he sub-letted from. It was not his fault at all though.

I just got off the phone with their office making my next appointment. I love Dr. Mercer as well and was really worried about him when all that happened. I thought he was sick or something, but it was just a minor dispute.

Where is Dr. Mercer's new office located? I'm sure I got something in the mail, but can't find it
Don't want to lose track of him, good, caring physicians are hard to come by,a nd he's one of the best.
