I was given the gift of having been able to have Dr. Mercato make adjustments to my aging face. He has the eyes of an artist, being in tune to each curvature of you face and what movement his procedure will be produced by readjusting it in such a way that I was actually made to look like my much younger self using PRP and fat transfer. I am in awe of this man. I am, only a day after the procedure, and already look fabulous. Hardly any bruising a little swelling. You can choose any doctor, but you will not get the same results. The results come from the genius of the man. I will never trust my face again to any other Plastic Surgeon. He is one of a kind. We also did the DOT laser and it was a breeze no pain.
Dr. Carlos Mercardo – The best Doctor I have ever been to in my life.
I always said for a doctor I would rather have someone technically competent than nice. Dr. Mercado is both. He is what a true doctor should be, he really uses his God given talents to try to help.
Before the procedure I have trouble walking. I was in so much pain I could not focus on my work. I would work on my back for 12 hours a day with my computer on my chest. It was very sad.
I went to Dr. Mercado.
The effect is I feel like new person. My wife said it is like I have a new husband. Why did she say that?
I went from being overwhelmed with pain and barely sleeping, to being like I was 21 and surfing, literally.
For example and specifically how different I am, I am clearing the jungle (I live in FL) in my backyard and turning it into a beautiful garden. I am moving mountains and this has been years after the procedure. It worked and continues to do so.
My point is my experience is not a euphoric honeymoon effect, but rather tangible and consistent improvement over the long-term without any side effect. I take no medication and feel good.
I lived in Beacon Hill, Boston near Harvard Medical, and I lived in Europe, yet Dr. Mercado in my opinion exceeded those other fine doctors I went to in terms of professionalism, technical knowledge and sincere empathy.
Dr. Mercado really knows his stuff. He is a geek (in a positive way) about the medicine he practices, as he always is investigating the latest breakthroughs with passion and objectivity.
This is a real review, and I am a real person, so feel free to contact me if you have questions about my experience.
The Staff – Kind, professional, friendly always proactive and will to help. Many have been there years and that says something.
The Office – Clean, stylish, plenty of parking, easy to find.
Therefore, if you are browsing doctors, I would recommend Dr. Mercado. The reason I am writing this is simple: after I did it, it had such a positive profound impact on my life.
Dr. Mercado has magical hands… no pain!
I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer over 4 years ago and had a total thyroidectomy as a result. Before having my thyroid removed I had no real health issues and was on no medications other than the occasional Advil for headaches. After my thyroidectomy my overall health changed dramatically. Over the next 3-6 months I developed multiple issues I had never experienced before including a significant decrease in my energy level, inability to focus or concentrate, hot flashes & night sweats, weight gain, depression, mood swings, insomnia, anxiety, high blood pressure & an overall lack of desire to do anything outside of what I absolutely had to.
Over the next couple of years I ended up on multiple medications focused on treating my symptoms which over time started to have affects of their own. I was extremely frustrated over this loss of control in regards to my health and ultimately my life in general. Being an RN and working in the healthcare industry for over 25 years I couldn’t accept that this was just going to be the way I was going to feel the rest of my life, but couldn’t seem to find anyone willing to dig deeper and take the time to get to the root of my symptoms for an actual cause, that is until I finally mentioned my situation to Dr. Carlos Mercado at Eterna MD.
Dr. Mercado was sincerely concerned about my situation and passionate about determining the core problem. Over the next several weeks I completed lab work, comprehensive health questionnaires, obtained all my medical records and provided Dr. Mercado with every detail of my health I could think of since my thyroid cancer was first diagnosed. When I received the call that he was ready to see me to let me know his findings I was scared to death. I felt like after everything we had done if he hadn’t found a reason for my current health situation I was stuck feeling this way permanently.
There are truly no words to adequately describe the changes in my life after that appointment. Not only did Dr. Mercado confirm the clinical reason for every symptom I had, but immediately started me on a comprehensive treatment plan focused on eliminating them. My labs revealed a significant deficiency is several of my hormone levels which were causing 99% of my symptoms. Within days of starting hormone replacement therapy I started feeling the effects and less than 4 weeks later I can’t believe the change in my health, my mind and my body. I’m off 4 of my previous symptom specific medications, I’ve lost 6 pounds, lowered my blood pressure, regained a lot of my mental focus and seen significant improvement in my energy level, mood swings and depression just to name a few. I feel like myself again for the first time in over 4 years and he’s not done yet.
I’ve been shocked by how many women I’ve talked to in the last month who have noticed the change in me and have been suffering similar health situations in silence because they didn’t know they had any other choice. Dr. Mercado’s passion for medicine and his patients’ well being has not only affected me, but also my husband, children, family, friends and co-workers. Dr. Mercado is nothing short of amazing in his gift to truly look at each patient as an individual case and determine what will work for them. Dr. Mercado’s medical rejuvenation program has truly given me my life back!
I had sustained a major pectoralis tear in August of 2013, that required major surgery resulting in over 200 fiber wires to attach muscles and tendons and a metal button to anchor everything back to the bone. I am a competitive bodybuilder so an injury like this is usually the end of competitive bodybuilding. The surgeon who performed the procedure did a good job and tried to repair as much of it as was possible, however the prognosis was that I would not be able to train heavy or normal again.
This was something that I was not ready to accept. I started doing my own research into additional treatments or therapy’s that could help aide in the recovery of the muscles and tendons that could not be repaired. Additionally the area in which was torn had a very visible defect in the upper corner of the chest which was not astetically pleasing, especially to a bodybuilder.
I contacted several stem cell therapists around the country and the world, all with the same result ” sorry we cannot help you” As a last ditch effort I found another stem cell therapist in Orlando, FL and decided to contact one last Dr. to see if they would be willing to at least try to help me. This Dr. was Dr. Mercado. We conferenced and in addition he evaluated my case and discussed it also with the surgeon who performed the initial surgery. After careful research on the part of Dr. Mercado and of course meeting with him, he decided to do the procedure of injecting stem cells into my tendon and for filling the void left in my chest.
I had the procedure and I noticed week by week that the gap in my upper left portion of my chest started to fill and become full again, the pain from feeling inorganic material in my chest discontinued and I am back to training again and my confidence has been reignited and I owe it all to Dr. Mercado who was willing to help me when countless experts refused to. His staff was very accommodating and he checked on me every day after the surgery and was also very impressed with the physical appearance of my chest post stem cell therapy and I believe it has sparked new advances to how stem cell therapy can be utilized.
Thank you once again Dr. Mercado and the staff at Eterna MD
After my second child it was very difficult to get back into shape. As much as I worked out, I simply could not get rid of a pouch around my tummy area. After meeting Dr. Carlos Mercado in a personal one on one consultation I knew he would change my life forever. Dr. Mercado really took the time to listen to my concerns, and set goals for me. I never felt like a patient everytime I went to the office. He was available to me, and made me feel extremely comfortable. What sets Dr. Mercado aside from other doctors is that he doesn’t practice traditional methods. Instead of a tradtional liposuction he performed a liposculpture procedure on me. He defined my silhouette, and sculpted my curves. I was taken aback with how amazing my results turned out. He gave me an hour glass figure I thought I could never achieve.
Not only did Dr. Mercado make my body look unbelieveable, but the whole experience was virtually painless. The fact that he uses local, and not general anesthesia really made me feel safe. Believe it or not, I went shopping the very next day! I had an incredible experience with my Body Jet Liposuction, and my confidence has gone through the roof! From time to time, Dr. Mercado still calls me to check on me to see how I am doing… and that means the world to me. Dr. Mercado and his staff really made me feel like a part of their family, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for natural enhancement.
