Dr. Merritt is extremely thorough and caring with every intent on getting to the root cause of the situation. He is friendly and engaging, taking the time to get to know you and understand your health history. He doesn’t make surface “assessments” to rush you out; instead, he’s a good listener and takes as much time as necessary depending on your situation. I highly recommend him for any age or issue. The staff in the office are also very professional.

I am new to Florida and today was my first visit with Dr. Merritt. If first impressions count I was very impressed. The staff were kind, courteous, and very helpful. Dr. Merritt took his time so I probably waited a little longer to see him, but if he treated his other patients like he did me it was definitely worth the wait
