I have been a patient of Dr Merrill for years, and I can honestly say he is the best! He always takes the time to listen to my concerns and makes sure that I get the treatment I need. I feel that he truly respects and cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him.

One thing that Dr. Merrill does that set shim apart is is his willingness to listen. One reason I decided to adopt Dr. Merrill as my doc is that he allows me to share information about my condition that i think is important to share. He doesn't cut me off as did my previous doc. That practice gives me the sense that I'm working with him to improve my care.

He misdiagnosed me; added an extra diagnostic term which has never been a part of my electronic health record. I had asked him to remove the term, but he said since I am taking a certain drug, the term he used was justified. He isn’t a mental health physician and I certainly don’t have any mental health issues. I have stopped taking the listed drug. When I asked him about another term regarding my weight and cholesterol, he insisted on using it in my medical record. I mentioned it to him and asked him why he insisted on using the terms, he said I “sounded tense”. I did not used profanity or exclamation marks, etc. He mentioned that he no longer feels the need to continue to have a doctor/patient relationship with me and basically denied me care by him. Being a nurse, I have excellent knowledge of medical terminology and I review my records with a fine tooth comb. I am writing a letter to my insurance company and the medical board because the diagnosis and charges are incorrect.

Dr. Merrill is personable and very good at explaining and resolving problems. My most recent visit was for a simple but effective ear irrigation for clogged ears. The appointment desk was able to get me a same-day appointment. Wait time was about 30 mins in the back. I visit every year for a wellness check which is comprehensive, plus includes a good conversation about preventive practices to maintain good health.

Dr. Merrill is one of the most detailed by compassionate doctors I have seen .in my 59 years. He will spend the necessary time to access and treat each condition you bring up. You may not have the fastest overall appointment every visit but you will have a complete healthcare experience with a doctor that cares very deeply for each patients well being, health and quality of life.

The only reason I would not recommend anyone is because every time I go I am there for 2 hours. That is way to long in my opinion. If my appointment is at 9 am, I should be out by 10 am. I believe they schedule at least 3 people or more for the same time. I know I am with the Dr approximately 10 to 15 minutes , so overbooking is the only reason I can come up with for having to wait that long.

Dr. Merrill is not a hurry in/hurry out doctor. He takes time to listen to his patients concerns and explains things in ways that patients can understand. He also has a good sense of humor and is pleasant to talk with.

Dr. Merrill is the most thorough doctor I’ve ever gone to. On each visit he reviews my history and makes sure he knows what has happened recently and how I am currently. Dr. Merrill reviews my current medications and suggest changes as needed. He takes the necessary time to hear and understand my questions and then to explain things to me in terms I understand.

Dr. Merrill certainly is a pleasure to see. He is a ""no-nonsense" physician who is a good listener and is conservative in his approach. He is upbeat and interested in my well-being. Dr. Merrill readily answers all of my questions explaining both pro and con of treatments in terms the layman can understand. Sometimes the wait time is a little longer than may be normal, but that is, no doubt, because he does not rush through the encounter. He is worth the wait.
