South Carolina |
If I had known then, what I know now, I'd never have allowed my loved one to go to Merritt. He withheld information that, in my opinion, made the difference between life and death, and having lost that loved one (for which I hold him fully accountable), now, I know better. Never again. I'd never go...more

Excellent bedside manner! He listened to my concerns. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He is experienced and professional yet very humble. The entire staff is excellent! All the nurses are caring and always available. I feel I am in the best hands; receiving the best care.
