Fabulous job on my upper eyelid surgery. Dr. Merritt came highly recommended to me by another surgeon. And he didn’t disappoint. He did exactly as I asked and I’m very happy with the results. I had 2 follow up appts, first one to remove the stitches and the second one to check how they were healing. Told him I’m happy with the results and he said to call him if I ever needed anything. I’ve recommended him to family members. A+
