How likely are you to recommend Dr. Merriman?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Merriman is fantastic. I have been working with his office to meet the criteria my insurance layed out. He is very clear and understanding when he talks about obesity. His plan is easy to follow. His office even gives you the option to purchase your nutritional needs, taking the guesswork out of the situation. Once my surgery was complete he and his team have been there for ongoing support. I could not be happier with my choice in doctors!
