Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Merritt did not rush me when he asked why I was there. He let me explain every symptom and acknowledged everything I had to say. He was patient. He was kind and his assistants were also. I felt heard, cared for and was very impressed with my visit with him. He began my treatment immediately with adequate testing and I am very glad he visits Rock Springs.
