Patient Comments (4)
in Dallas, TX |
Dr. Merritt repaired the torn ligament in my eye, and adjusted the other eye. I am so happy with the outcome of the surgery! I first met Dr. Merritt when my mother need plastic surgery to repair an eyelid after she had had multiple surgeries for glaucoma. I would give Dr. James Merritt III as many stars as I could for his excellent oculoplastic surgery skills and his kindness to his patients.

18 months later, the scars are impossible to camouflage. Dr Merritt was aloof and uncaring leaving me with visible ugly scarring

Even though he appears a little gruff, he is an outstanding surgeon. He did my bilateral ptosis surgery which had outstanding results with no pain attended to the procedure.
in Springtown TX |
Dr. Merritt is incredibly talented and knowledgeable. He takes what ever time is necessary to explain things to the patient so they can understand. He has always answered all of my questions and he makes me feel very comfortable with recommendations he makes. He is one of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. Truly a great doctor.
