Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Merrill "When something goes wrong with your foot, it can affect the way you walk, and even prevent you from enjoying your everyday activities. Dr. Merrill will then take time to diagnose your foot condition, and create a treatment plan that keeps you in mind. The plan will be focused on conservative treatments first that will heal you quickly, followed by more aggressive treatments and procedures second should the conservative options fail. He also believes in help the patients through the recovery process to ensure complete healing is achieved."

Dr. Merrill has treated my nast toe fungus and has won. He is a great guy to work with and his staff is excellent. Highly recommend him. Harlan Barry

I find that Dr. Evan Merrill and his staff are cheerful and dedicated to their profession. Upon an initial exam, he outlined my prognosis and choices for treatment. And now, a couple months later, I enjoy relief from a chronic foot pain that began three years ago. Long walks are, again, available for my daily enjoyment. I should note that Dr. Merrill wasn't my first Podiatrist, but, if permitting, he is now my only choice.

Dr. Merrill listens to you and makes you feel that no question is too dumb to ask. He shows compassion and concern.

I saw Dr. Merrill for a big toe fusion. It was a big deal to me as I am a runner and I have been concerned about post surgery pain and losing my ability to exercise. Dr. Merril and his staff were Amazing and attentive. Dr. Merrill listened to all of my concerns, left the final decision to me whether to wait or move ahead with surgery. Post surgery I couldn't have felt better. My foot is pain free for the first time in years and recovery has been pain free and quicker than i expected.

Went for a problem on my big toe; pain, ingrown nail, possible infection. Waited over 30min; when I went in, he was in a hurry. Refused to look at painful side of the toe ; He trimmed off the end of toenail; found fungal infection; started to use the "sander" tool to thin nail. Whizzed around quickly and nicked my skin. It bled; he never finished; put on ointment & bandaid. The fungal infection spread into the cut, hit me head to toe on skin. Still have toe pain. NEVER go there again.

I had broken a toe that needed surgery. Dr Merrill was able to get me into his office the next day, while another surgeon was a week out. My experience with Dr Merrill and his staff was excellent! I highly recommend the Southern Oregon Foor and Ankle to all who have foot or ankle issues!
