Some nurses aren’t very friendly.

Tummy Tuck

I have wanted to have a tummy tuck for over 20 years, but have put it off for fear & finances. I was very ashamed of my body image and had low self esteem, but with much support from my husband & being made to feel comfortable with the doctor & staff, I finally had it done. I feel amazing, like a new person! I regret waiting for so long to have it done. I am completely satisfied with my surgery and recovery. The doctor & staff checked on me after surgery and made me feel important to them as well. I am so happy! I am satisfied with all aspects of my procedure from the time I emailed for information until now.Everyone was very helpful to me & everything I have experienced until now has been professional & friendly. I will recommend anyone to visit this facility and I plan to have all of my future procedures here as well.


I have recommended dr merrimans practice to several people and even passed out her business card and hopes as that was the only one I had left. I know healing varies from person to person but due to an allergic reaction prescribed for healing I’m petrified that my eyes won’t turn out normal looking. The bags beneath my eyes are not as apparent but my dark circles remain clear as ever. My eye shape has changed tremendously and I’m still waiting for both outer eye corners to lift back up. My left eye appears to be notably smaller than my right eye. My rhinoplasty may still be healing as well. The overall shape of my nose is great. I do still have a visible scar on my columella which I was told should be calmer by the years end. The upper left side near the bridge of my nose has 2 apparent lines due to something internal . I did reccomend your practice to several people as I felt all of you to be knowledgeable about your various jobs. Those that were nurses and dr Merrimack are highly educated at their crafts. I want to believe that when I hit that magic 6 month or 1 year mark all of my concerns will dissipate.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I didn't have to wait to be taken back for my appt. The staff and nurses were polite and friendly. My questions were answered fully. Almost immediately after the nurse completed the necessary questions the doctor came in to start my procedure. Dr. Merriman answered my questions and quickly put me at ease. She was knowledgeable and professional. She completed the procedure quickly, effectively with very little pain. I was very pleased with the doctor, staff and over all atmosphere of the office. The results looked natural!

Breast Reduction

My breasts are normal size again!! . My breasts were way too large to suit me. They were always in my way. I was very uncomfortable with the way my clothes fit, always self concious. My breast now are normal for me. My blouses fit! I’m not self concious any more. I no longer feel like “the girl with the biggest boobs in the room”! The employees were very nice. I never felt uncomfortable. Everything was explained to me and they were always available for questions. I have already referred others to Dr. Merriman. I will use her in the future, if and when, the need arises. Thank you, Dr. Merriman!


Very friendly clean and super qualified
