Dr. Merritt is an extremely caring and competent breast care surgeon. From my first office visit for a suspicious mammogram, to biopsies, to excision surgery, then ultimately a bilateral mastectomy Dr. Merritt and her staff were caring and supportive. They were always just a phone call away ready to answer any questions throughout my various procedures. Every procedure was timely, and handled professionally. I had quick healing with all procedures. I highly recommend this breast care surgeon.

I had a core needle breast biopsy on 11/15/2016. I was very scared after reading horror stories online. It was for me, painless. The needle for numbing I hardly felt at all, and there was no burning from the numbing agent. Dr. Merritt walked me thru every step of the procedure as she was taking the biopsy. I just wanted to take the time to thank Dr. Merritt, she was FANTASTIC. She is a very compassionate person and very skilled at what she does. Her staff was AMAZING as well. Thank you Dr. M.

I had a lump in my breast last fall and was referred to Dr Merritt. She was wonderful. I was so anxious when I saw her it was terrible. She put me at ease with her positive caring manner. She did a breast biopsy and it was a cyst. There is no visible scar and I thank her for her professionalism and caring attitude.
