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.
