I was a bit nervous coming in during the COVID pandemic but was greeted at the door by a nurse and she questioned my health regarding COVID protocols. This put me at ease knowing that patients that may be in the facility were all in good health. I was instructed to use my elbow to open the door via the push button. Great idea. Paying for my visit was quite untouchable! Another concern I didn't need to worry about either! Dr. Merra was prompt in meeting with me and was thoughtful about my state of mind under these trying times. She assured me that this is normal. My knee issues were discussed and I received treatment that I know will help. Dr. Merra gave me instructions on how to alleviate my symptoms to further my recovery from this ongoing problem. I questioned the ads seen on Facebook and if those could be answers to my problem. Dr. Merra gave me sound advice and I am forever grateful. 5 stars - 10 if that is a thing!
