Zachary C. Merz, PhD, is a clinical neuropsychologist. His professional interests include neurodegenerative illness, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries and sports-related concussions.
Using a holistic and collegial approach to care, he strives to build rapport with patients and collaborates with them to understand all factors that can influence their cognitive abilities. He maintains a healthy balance between being a clinician while authoring scientific publications.
Outside of work, he and his wife love hiking and spending time with their two dogs. They love baseball and hope to visit every Major League Baseball stadium in the U.S. and Canada.
“In my view, clinical practice and research form a circular relationship where both are necessary to be the best clinician you can be.” – Zachary C. Merz, PhD
