Faisal Merchant, MD

Merchant REVISED“Having been raised in Dunedin, FL, since the age of two, there was no question of where I would be practicing medicine once I completed my education and training. I love practicing Otolaryngology for every aspect that the specialty provides. Also, I enjoy being able to treat patients of all age ranges, both adult and pediatric, so I truly can say that I am at the service of my entire community.

After completing my residency training, I began my career serving as the Chief of Ear, Nose, and Throat at the Bay Pines VA Medical Center in Pinellas County. Being the only full-time physician of my specialty serving our nation’s veterans in southwest Florida from Tarpon Springs to Naples was a huge responsibility but an even greater privilege. In my five years there, my patients taught me not only to become a more compassionate physician and surgeon, but also to be a more responsible citizen.

I am honored to be a part of a group of physicians and staff that puts the changing needs of an ever-growing community first and foremost in every aspect of patient care.”
