My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

With over 30 years of experience in the practice of medicine, my passion has always been patient advocacy along with providing the highest level of clinical skills and knowledge in a compassionate and friendly setting. In the ever-changing environment of healthcare, my MDVIP-affiliated practice will continue to ensure that my patients receive the personalized and careful attention to detail required for their unique medical needs. I invite you and your family to experience the advantage of experience.

I am board certified in both Internal Medicine and Nephrology. In addition to the practice of general internal medicine, I have expertise in all aspects of kidney disease and hypertension and special interests in cardiovascular and preventive medicine. As a professor of medicine in renowned universities for most of my career, I acquired the knowledge and skill to teach medicine; specifically kidney diseases and hypertension, which I presently use to provide the most comprehensive care possible for my patients.

I have been practicing medicine in Southwest Florida for many years and have excellent relationships with knowledgeable specialists, in all aspects of healthcare.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Gadallah

from George in FL January 24, 2024 for Merit F. Gadallah, MD

In November 2021 I was diagnosed with a severe compression of the spinal cord due to stenosis, L3-4, L4-5, that had reached the point where I had real difficulty walking. Following lumbar neurosurgery my condition progressively worsened. The surgical team thought this was due to lower extremity neuropathy and was ready to refer me to a neurologist for treatment, physical therapy. I took all my… See more

from Thomas in FL January 19, 2024 for Merit F. Gadallah, MD

When's the last time you heard of a doctor spending this kind of time with a patient? Faced with a decision about how to best treat a serious medical condition that was diagnosed by a specialist doctor, I called the office and said I would like to speak with Doctor G, as he is affectionately called by the staff, to get his opinion. I was surprised when the office manager asked if it… See more

from Tom in FL September 7, 2023 for Merit F. Gadallah, MD

I've been an MDVIP patient for several years and became a patient of Dr Gaddalah (Dr G as he is affectionately called) four years ago when my wife and I relocated to Naples. I've been very satisfied with my relationship with Dr G. He and his team are very responsive and live up to the high standards set by MDVIP for patient care and responsiveness. Most recently I needed to speak with Dr G… See more

I have been a patient of Dr Gadallah for over 15 years, for my blood pressure, before his affiliation of MDVIP. He has always taken the time to talk with me and show a real concern for my well being and good health. I joined MDVIP so I could have him as my personal physician. When I did the MDVIP physical exam I was very impressed with how detailed and complete my examination was. Again Dr… See more

from Andrew in FL February 26, 2018 for Merit F. Gadallah, MD

Dr. Gadallah is bar none the Dr. most attentive to details and the patients true well being. Always feel that he is doing what is in my best interest and never moving quickly to get to the next patient to get through the day. Spends as much time as necessary to work through any questions and concerns and explains everything clearly.

from Merwin March 30, 2017 for Merit F. Gadallah, MD

My MDVIP doctor retired and Dr Gadallah took over his practice. I was distressed because I hated to start over with a new physician. After two visits with Dr Gadallah, I couldn't be happier. He takes an extraordinary time with his patients and is very kind and understanding. I am impressed with his education and experience. I feel fortunate to be one of his patients.
