My three children have been seen by Dr. Merrill for many years. I appreciate the friendly and relaxed atmosphere , Dr. Merrill has always been professional and accurate in his initial care and follow up, even to a point of contacting urgent cares that I visited to ensure proper follow up care. The staff remembers and makes my boys feel comfortable and the Dr. Merrill has a professional and care manner and able to adjust to vast age difference to make them understand (elementary level to high school level) and special needs.

By far the worst dr. He critized me for having a nose piercing and having a tatto on the back of my neck. He also lifted up 4 year old sons shirt numerous times after asked not to and said he is overweight. As a parent I thought that was a bit to much. Dr. Merill said you are not the one with a PHD are you in denial that your son is overweight. Then says his weight is average but height is the issue, if he was taller he would be skinner. Very unprofessional.

Place is a little out of date with all the equipment in the office. They tell you must be dressed in a certian way when you come to the office.Clean office though, it is in a scary part of town. Wait was over an hour, and with a toddler we all know that can be difficult. Dr was nice and introduced himself. He does to tend to talk a little more than you would like. He doesnt give you much time to talk or explain some things. He did keep on saying my child was overweight, and i explained that she doesnt eat any greasy foods, she eats healthy and said well if she did she wouldnt be having this problem. So i would recommend you have her stay off of juice, and from snacking so much. I thought it was rude.
