Taylors, SC |
I have a rare disease and am on a lot of medicine and some of the meds have an effect on my bones. She took the time to explain my bone density showed, how my meds were affecting my body and even called some of my other physicians to see how we could tweak things in the best interest in me. She's really straight forward and has no problem referring you to another doctor if she can't help and that was comforting. Most of the staff are very friendly, there's one nurse whos never happy.

After waiting for months to see Dr. Merchant she dx me with a debilitating autoimmune disorder. I paid thousands of dollars for my initial appointment and numerous labs. After that, she refused to fill out my FMLA form even though it's never been a issue in the past with previous Drs. (Which referred me to her) Not only was her staff rude, but she was too. I never had a returned phone call the entire time I was seen at this office. I would not recommend this Dr because of her ethics and staff.

After seeing Dr. Merchant for six years for Fibromyalgia, she refused to fill out SHORT- TERM disability paperwork. I was not looking for SSDI from the government. I was only needing to use my short-term disability which I paid for through my employer, and she refused. Well, I eventually had to quit my job because of my pain. Needless to say, she was useless. Also, don't let her prescribe antidepressants to you.Dosage was 1/4 what was needed. I have had much better success with my family doctor.
