    Dr. Merritt is an excellent physician; However, it it is not his unparallel skills that impressed me but his humility and genuine care for his patients. His presence and approach brings comfort to his patients. His ability to connect with his patients is uncanny. When he enters the exam room you get the feeling that everything will be fine. Dr. Merritt is an exceptional human being. We need more physicians like him.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Merritt for over 30 years. He has performed surgery on both of my hips and both knees. I live more than 60 miles from his office and wouldn't go to anyone else for my orthopedic surgeries. He takes the time to explain procedures and what is the best thing approach to take.

    I have been seeing Dr. Merritt for over 25 years. I had 2 hip replacements and 2 knee replacements performed by Dr. Merritt. Dr. is caring and patient. He is extremely knowledgeable and utilizes the latest techniques for his all of his surgeries. Dr. Merritt has taught other doctors and many medical students the best surgery techniques in the field. I see Dr. Merritt still though I live further away. I would not see another doctor for my knees and hips. I have recommended him to many peopl
