Specialties

Dr. James Merrill has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

I love this doctor. I was with him for several years, then he retired. I miss him a lot, he always took time to let me talk to him. Always patient, always kind, always made me feel like I was important. He truly is missed.

Dr. Merrill is the best!!

My husband, son & I have been patients of Dr Merrill's since 1992. We love him!! The things I really appreciate are: we have seen him for almost everything (routine illness, well woman exams, spinal adjustments, premie check ups, childhood ADHD, etc.), I never feel rushed, he explains things to my satisfaction and answers all questions, he remembers me from visit to visit, he doesnt hesitate to do specialist referrals when needed, he tries to prescribe the most reasonably priced medication when possible, he accepts many different insurances, and he's always current when it comes to changes and new things in the field of medicine. He's also had the same nurses for a long time and they're great! The only complaint I have is when something comes up that needs to be seen that day or the next day it's usually not possible. That's the only thing I wish were different because it costs so much more out-of-pocket to go to a walk-in emergency clinic, along with the fact that you're there for hours.

He saved my life.

Dr. James "Mike" Merrill saved my life due to his quick and good decisions. His treatment and counsel gave me longevity and a quality of life that is desired by so many. I live so far but if I were in his area he would be the physician I would call on. Thank you Dr. Merrill for my life. You blessed me and my family.
