The staff at Dr. Merrick's office are tremendous! They know me by name and always take the time to make me feel welcomed and safe. The time sitting in the waiting room is not long and the staff make sure to make me feel comfortable.
I sought out Dr. Merrick to fix the numbing in my hands. Within weeks of my first appointment, I was scheduled for surgery and the numbness is completely gone! Dr. Merrick truly listens when you explain where it hurts and has the drive to make it better.
Dr. Merrick has a truly gifted bedside manner. He listened when I tried to explain the source of my elbow pain – which had been hurting for years even after a previous surgery and physical therapy. He did not dismiss my pain, but, rather, offered ideas of where the pain may be and then proceeded to fix my elbow.
