Patient Reviews

“I had a delightful experience at this office. The staff was pleasant and courteous. The wait times were not that long. The doctor was very friendly and always kept me informed on what was going on, my progress and the overall outcome of what was going to happen with my knee. I would and have recommended him to friends and family. Excellent place to get taken care of.”

“Dr. Merritt saw me in February for terrible hip pain and said I needed a new hip, but because my house had just been sold, I couldn't have it until resettling in North Carolina. He gave me pain med to cover the time until the move. Dr. Leak, Dr. Massey, and Dr. Bauerle all helped me and my late husband, from time to time. I miss your exceptional care and have settled near family in the NC mountains with hopes of finding equally competent care in the Asheville. Thank you for an excellent association!”

“Dr. Merritt had replaced both of my son's hips, and he was back in the gym in 10 days and doing great. Both of Michael's legs were the same exact length after each surgery. I would not consider seeing anyone for my knee problems but Dr. Merritt. He is professional, compassionate and treats his patients with the care and dedication that you do not find anymore. His knowledge and expertise cannot be found anywhere else. He is a people person and has a real sense of making his patients his primary focus.”

“I read in the Health Finders schedule that Dr. Brothers was speaking on knee surgery and the alternatives. I was having knee pain and problems walking, and I was already in therapy, so I decided to attend. I was impressed with what I heard and stayed to listen to the questions of other attendees. I got an appointment with Dr. Brothers, and we set a time for surgery. I had my surgery, and I am without pain in my right leg (new knee).”
