We had some problems with the online appointment system but Dr. Merritt did a FaceTime phone call instead working around the complication of the system it was terrific. I like the fact that Dr Merritt is thorough he takes his time is very detail it’s one physician I don’t mind waiting because I know at the time he’s given to another patient while I’m waiting he’s going to give to me when it’s my turn.

I've been a patient of dr. Merritt for several years and he has always taken the time to answer my questions and treat me like I am a partner in getting myself healthy. He is extremely knowledgeable what about medications and how best to use them. Great bedside manner, very patient, and explains things in detail. I am a complicated patient and need my wife to help me remember my visit and what to do when we go home. He has been very accommodating with her and addresses her in the same manner as he does his patient. Probably the best doctor I have seen in my life. The staff is always helpful. Yolanda goes above and beyond and always finds the answer to my questions.

This was my first visit with Dr. Merritt. I will be going back. He patiently listened to my concerns and spent time with me rather than in & out. He ordered test to rule out things I am concerned with for my peace of mind. Great experience.
