EXCELLENT ! Dr Merritt is a real nice doctor that knows a lot about treating chronic pain. She has seen me for the last three years. I have pain in low back and shoots down my right leg so it's been very helpful to get treated and get relief.

After initial visit with Dr. Merritt, she pushes you off on a new inexperienced nurse practitioner, Shannon Martin, who does not have your best interest at heart and has an inflated sense of self. Watch out.

Dr. Merritt presented herself as very knowledgeable and caring. I felt very comfortable with her skills and expertise. She took sufficient time with me to explain my problems and the procedures needed to help me. I would highly recommend her.
