I had an MRI in the morning and the doctor called that afternoon with the results. I have NEVER had a doctor call so quickly with results and I really appreciated it.

Dr. Merra is compassionate and relatable. This was my fourth visit with Dr. Merra, and she is a thoughtful practitioner, beginning conservatively and moving progressively through my treatment plan.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Merra. This is my second time seeing her, and she is among the very best doctors I have ever seen. Although I have to stop running (I'm 61 and have significant arthriitis in my knee.), Dr. Merra can totally relate to my issue and understands how difficult it is to stop running - she is a runner too. I can't say enough good things about her and the practice.
