A Mom Fan!

Dr. Stephen Merriam is AMAZING. I have 2 children that see him regularly. My daughter (4) just loves going there and is excited every time. My son (2.5) is generally terrible at doctor visits. Dr. Merriam is just so good with him that he always leaves giggling! He is the only Dr that my son will let look at him without screaming. Not only does he comfort my son, but I am comforted with how great he explains things to me, the worried mom! The first time I came in the office I was worried about my child and left feeling very positive and comfortable. I highly recommend both Dr Stephen and his father, Dr Walter Merriam.
