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."
