I have been a long-time patient of Dr. Merchant, and I have followed her now to a few different offices. She is patient, thorough, and knowledgeable above and beyond what any patient could hope for. The care and attention that she gives is unmatched, making it a no-brainer to continue to follow her to new practices. The staff at the new office have also been extremely helpful, attentive, and caring, and I could not ask for anything more. I cannot say higher praise overall or recommend Dr. Merchant and her office enough.
