    it was a great visit

    Overall, the provider did a great job. He was knowledgeable, polite, and clear.

    Experienced on Jun 27, 2019

    Scheduling visits with this office/department is difficult. The wait times for an appointment are very high. I was pleased with the service once I received it though.

    Experienced on Jun 16, 2019

    Dr. Merrill listens and cares. Treats you with respect.

    Experienced on Jun 16, 2019

    Excellent - only difficult item is getting in due to the fact his clinic days are when I work and he doesn't have late appts.

    Experienced on Jun 06, 2019

    He is extremely knowledgeable about my entire health history - not merely my GI issues.

    Experienced on Jun 06, 2019

    I could not have had a better experience. Each person I dealt with was kind, empathetic & knowledgeable.

    Experienced on May 26, 2019

    Experienced on May 26, 2019

    we're grateful to have an intelligent and down to earth doctor

    Experienced on May 12, 2019

    dr. Merrill was very personable, and listen to me and discussed My Healthcare to come to solution that works best for me, not just what he wanted to impose on me. I appreciated his approach and felt very comfortable with him

    Experienced on May 06, 2019

    Always ensures I feel informed & comfortable. Incredible bedside manner.

    Experienced on May 06, 2019

    Dr. Merrill was fantastic. He gave me options & explained things really well. He respected me & my concerns & was kind & willing to help me.

    Experienced on May 06, 2019

    I need him to be my primary care doc - darn. He's great!

    Experienced on Apr 30, 2019

    The wait was EXTRA long this - it was frustrating.

    Experienced on Apr 30, 2019

    Is concerned/listened to me. I trust him.

    Experienced on Apr 23, 2019

    I would like to know my lab results. Dr. Merrill likely delegated this to someone but it didn't get done.

    Experienced on Mar 07, 2019

    Went for a major problem, but because the doctor never even reviewed my records until we were in the room with him. Very disappointing we didn't live in the valley! Acted like he was in a hurry to move us through as fast as he could. Didn't really take the time to listen or hear what I had to say.

    Experienced on Mar 04, 2019

    When I finally got in to see the doctor I was very happy with them - He was very professional, kind, and interested and was VERY knowledgeable. He is busy & hard to get an appointment.

    Experienced on Feb 12, 2019

    Very business like, tried to offer a smile but not REALLY concerned.

    Experienced on Feb 02, 2019

    I had an endoscopy & biopsy in Oct. [...]. I had to contact them 6 weeks later to find out the results of the biopsy. Therefore I didn't get a follow up appt. until this visit in January. I wish they had contacted me soon as they got the results. It was worrisome to me. I really like the doctor & the staff though.
