Dr Courson took excellent care of me while I was pregnant. I had some pretty bad anxiety and PTSD during this pregnancy due to my experience with a previous pregnancy which ended in stillbirth. Dr Courson helped me get through and kept me calm. She is a great person and a competent doctor.

Dr. Merriman’s staff is wonderful. I have visited her practice several times for facial treatments including microneedling and hydrofacials. It is always a pleasant atmosphere and staff is very knowledgeable about the procedures and products. I would highly recommend using her practice.
