Wait time awful

My husband had to wait over an hour after his appointment to be called in. Dr Merritt appeared very knowledgeable but he didn't seem ready to answer questions, he would just blow it off and continue talking about surgery. He then proceeded to go to his calendar and schedule it, we had not even decided to let him do the surgery. We were not impressed with him at all; however, his staff were very nice.

Four Stars

He was kind and listened to my concerns. I thought it was funny for a surgeon to be wearing camo and hunting boots, but it didn't concern me because he put me at ease. The only complaint I had was I was very badly bruised. Everyone was shocked when they seen me, we weren't expecting that.

The BEST!

Dr. Merritt will spend however long it takes to ensure that you understand fully what is going on. Very compassionate. All of his staff that we have dealt with have been wonderful as well. His upbeat and warm personality flows over into his office personnel.

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Daniel Merritt is an exceptional doctor. He has done 2 surgeries on me. One was an emergency umbilical hernia repair and the other was getting my gallbladder removed. Both surgeries went very well and I have very little scarring. I would recommend him to anyone.
