Will never return!

I've been battling daily Vertigo. I recently was seen by Dr. Merritt and while explaining my daily struggles and MANY office visits later to this office over my condition, he stopped me and told me to keep my emotions out of it. No bedside manner at all. He made me feel like everything I told him is in my head!! I will NEVER return to this clinic. They've ripped me off for hundreds of dollars and I've gotten NO answers, just the runaround.

Bad Doctor

My son came out of Dr. Merritt's visit feeling like it was an inconvenience for the Dr. to see him. Dr. inserted a camera scope into my son's nose down his throat with no concern how it bothered or hurt my son, Dr. just had a snotty attitude and remarked "what's wrong now". On my son's visit summary it states he has Gastro-esophageal reflux disease and Dysphagia, pharyngoesophageal phase but doctor in room gave him "clean bill of health" indicating It was in my son's head and doctor pointing to his head. The care is money driven because the doctor wanted to see my son back in a month, no way! I would never recommend anyone sending or going to see this Dr. Robert M Merritt.

One Star

I felt like there was no personalization, my care was money-driven. I take Xarelto, no cautierization used; Dr. was very loudly taking to a buddy on phone about football while I was waiting for procedure; room had two openings, no doors; no pain meds were offered; no written instructions as to wound care, emergency phone # was given; was made to feel like surgery was insignificant.
