Specialties

Dr. Sarah A Merritt has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Wonderful pain doc

So I’ve been to a handful of pain docs. I had a back surgery in 2006 that didn’t go well. Anyway, my fusion has caused me some grief. The last couple pain docs were jokers that just wanted to inject me and some of the meds weee terrible. I first went to see Dr Merritt in 2014. She was friendly and concerned about my situation. She let me tell her my whole deal. She set up a plan for me. She adjusted my meds. I’m not pain free but now I can sleep most nights. I’m back to work on light duty. I can get on with my life and I’m not pain free but compared to before. I was depressed and real low. Now I’m doing better. Not fixed, but I can live again and that means a lot to me.

Great doc

Doctor Merritt has been a big help for me the last couple years. I have degenerative disc disease. My pain was really bad, most every day. Now it's more manageable. I don't like taking pain pills. Doctor Merritt has helped me with injections and other options. She is thoughtful and a big help.

Excellent pain doc

I've been going to Dr Merritt for about three years. She diagnosed me and laid out some options for my treatment plan. She has done some blocks and switched up my pain meds. She got me in with a good PT. My pain is way down from what it was before starting treatment with Dr Merritt. So far, so good!

Good experience

Dr Sarah Merritt is a kind, caring doctor. I like that she explains options to me and treats me with respect. I have had chronic pain for about 12 years now and it's my constant companion. Dr Merritt has helped me sort out my meds and she referred me to PT for my back pain which has helped more than other PT in the past. Her staff is good and courteous to me. Wait times are average. I would recommend Dr Merritt if you have chronic pain.
