His staff was great, but Dr. Merrell was quick and unconcerned. He treated me like a diagnosis not a person with an injury. He didn't give me a second thought and barely gave me a first thought. In four visits I maybe spent 10 minutes with him total. And, yes, I am still in pain. Seeking treatment elsewhere.

I have had two surgeries on both thumbs! Dr. Merrell performed both. I would recommend him for any hand issue. Very thorough in telling you what to expect and gives you options! Long recovery but great results.

Extensive hand surgery (basilar joint, hyper extended thumb, carpal tunnel) with no complications, fast healing, and regaining of strength The surgical experience utilized a shoulder block and made recovery easier. The accompanying occupational therapy helped immensely. Online access to appointment history is helpful

From scheduling through carpal tunnel surgery and post surgery appointments, had a great experience with Dr. Merrell and his staff. I can't think of one thing to complain about.

I had a truly terrible experience with Dr. Merrell. It took a month to get a appointment even after contacting them and expressing my urgency due to pain and overall instability of my dominate arm. I waited a hour to see him and his first words were "i have a huge stack of papers I haven't had time to read and I don't have your MRIs". He took no time to explain anything about my condition. Then says I see you again in six weeks. I wouldn't wish this kind of treatment on a enemy! Terrible.

Doctors and staff were great and very helpful. The wait was long but not terrible (around 50 mins). Ability to perform radiographs so quickly was wonderful.
