Patient Comments (2)

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...more

No longer accepts Medicare. Absolutely horrible about answering/returning phone calls.
