Rude, condescending, impatient.
in Santa Barbara, CA |
Best ear doctor. Recommended by a friend for surfer's ear. Tried another doctor who wanted the right to do invasive surgery during the procedure, while I was out cold and asked me to sign a waiver. Merrin explained why this doctor wanted me to sign this right over to him....More $$$$$. Not only is he a great ear doctor but also has a high level of integrity and ethics.
