Dr Katherine Merra is fantastic lady and doctor. She was able to solve a long term issue that I've lived with for now for over 30 years and no doctor has been able to give me a straightforward answer. One she answered as soon as she greeted and introduced herself to me, she not only diagnosed my issue, but as well informed and educated me on the proper exercises and potential need that will help resolve my ongoing orthopedic issue. It was indeed a fantastic visit to South Shore Orthopedics and a delight to have Dr Katherine Merra as my doctor. Kind regards

After a bad experience with one of the other physicians in this office, I was reluctant to go back. Total difference in personalities and professionalism!!! I was very pleased!

My daughter has seen Dr. Merra several times for a variety of medical issues and she is ALWAYS thorough, professional, caring, compassionate and "dead on" with her diagnosis! Never like having a reason to go to the doctor, but we always enjoy seeing Dr. Merra. She is as good as it gets! I have referred many friends to her and South Shore Orthopedics and will continue to do so!

I live in Syracuse, NY. I was visiting my daughter in Hingham, when I needed to see a doctor there. I was so pleased with *Dr. Katherine Merra. She was caring, very informative, supportive and very helpful. I wish I could see her in Syracuse! My experience was very positive.
