Dr. Merrick and his staff were extremely professional and very nice to deal with. They went above and beyond to answer questions and made me feel very comfortable going into the procedure.

Dr. Merrick actually listens to his patients, he offers options for treatment and starts conservatively, which I appreciated. I felt very comfortable with him and trusted his opinion. I would recommend him to anyone that needed an excellent hand specialist or plastic surgeon, personally I feel he's the best in Eau Claire.

Dr. Merrick is very knowledgeable and suggests the best form of treatment for each patient. If he doesn't believe surgery is necessary, he suggests other forms of treatment. I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to him.

Dr. Merrick worked us in to his busy schedule the same day. He listened to what we had to say and was very clear in his explanation using an example we could relate to and understand. My son felt very comfortable talking to him. He provided excellent care and made himself available to us afterward for follow up.
