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.

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).
