“Dr. Merritt examined my left Shoulder, had an X-Ray, gave me a Cortisone shot in that Shoulder to see what results this would provide. If that doesn't offer substantial relief, he will proceed with an MRI for a complete determination of the problem, therefore, rendering him the detailed information necessary for him to proceed with surgery. A proper scientific procedure.”

“Dr. Merritt he listened, he doubled checked my previous encounter with, now retired, Dr. Ward, and explained why he was going to administer a cortisone injection in a different location. Two days later, and I’ve experienced no pain at all in my right shoulder, it feels great. I can only hope that feeling lasts. Thanks!”

Patient rating: 5 stars
“Contacted Dr. Merritt about swelling in the right leg before hip surgery. Was advised to see him immediately. Right leg from knee to hip was severely infected. Was rushed to the operating room and right leg was flushed to remove a severe infection around bones in the knee. In my opinion, Dr. Merritt probably saved not only my leg but possibly much more. As we wait for hip replacement surgery, he has my full trust now and will for years to come.”
