If anyone is searching for a plastic surgeon, search no longer. You will not be disappointed in choosing Dr. Merrick and his amazing staff. Dr. Merrick operated on my daughter and myself and we are both so happy with the care and professionalism that was offered. We are also ecstatic with our results. On top of our results being way beyond our expectations, Dr. Merrick was also able to figure out another health issue of mine during the surgical process. I can't thank him enough.

I had both the carpal tunnel and elbow surgery done at the same time in Oct 2017 and I had my doubts about getting any relief from all the discomfort I was experiencing. Dr Merrick assured me that it might take up to a year to heal properly and to have better feeling in my hand. Its been 7 months and its not 100% but very close to it. I highly recommend him if you have any problems with your hands and arms.

I had an incident on a Sunday morning and by the looks of it I expected that it would just be cut off. Dr Merrick came into the ER to see me and scheduled surgery for the next day, and I am happy to say that I still have my finger. Great Skills.
