when arriving I was a mess. when leaving felt so much better as Dr made me feel confident about her diagnosis. No additional testing as she so knew what it was and I am seeing her tomorrow and am so much better.

Dr. Merra is careful, efficient, and thorough in her approach. I was impressed by the amount of time she spent with me and the way that she worked with me to come up with the most effective/tolerable treatment plan moving forward. I felt like a respected and cared for patient. I was also so pleased with the thoughtfulness in planning the long-term approach to monitoring my injury. Dr. Merra created a timeline (which was great for relieving the anxiety of the unknown).

I was given _______________ and was more than happy with just that . I'm following dr merra's lead and I'm healing gradually. I would have declined opiods if they had been offered but they weren't and I'm fine with that.
