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
