Dr. Merrick and his staff are very easy to work with. He is very professional yet puts you at ease. He made a point to let me know he’d be available when needed. I felt well cared for.

If anyone is searching for a plastic surgeon, search no longer. You will not be disappointed in choosing Dr. Merrick and his amazing staff. Dr. Merrick operated on my daughter and myself and we are both so happy with the care and professionalism that was offered. We are also ecstatic with our results. On top of our results being way beyond our expectations, Dr. Merrick was also able to figure out another health issue of mine during the surgical process. I can't thank him enough.

I had both the carpal tunnel and elbow surgery done at the same time in Oct 2017 and I had my doubts about getting any relief from all the discomfort I was experiencing. Dr Merrick assured me that it might take up to a year to heal properly and to have better feeling in my hand. Its been 7 months and its not 100% but very close to it. I highly recommend him if you have any problems with your hands and arms.

I had an incident on a Sunday morning and by the looks of it I expected that it would just be cut off. Dr Merrick came into the ER to see me and scheduled surgery for the next day, and I am happy to say that I still have my finger. Great Skills.

Dr. Merrick and his staff were extremely professional and very nice to deal with. They went above and beyond to answer questions and made me feel very comfortable going into the procedure. Dr. Merrick made himself available post-surgery with any concerns and Took the time to call and check how I was doing. I could not be happier with choosing Merick plastic and hand surgery and highly recommend them if you are searching for the best !!

Dr. Merrick actually listens to his patients, he offers options for treatment and starts conservatively, which I appreciated. I felt very comfortable with him and trusted his opinion. I would recommend him to anyone that needed an excellent hand specialist or plastic surgeon, personally I feel he's the best in Eau Claire.

4 Louise in Eau Claire, WI – Apr 05, 2016


Dr. Merrick is very knowledgeable and suggests the best form of treatment for each patient. If he doesn't believe surgery is necessary, he suggests other forms of treatment. I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to him.

Dr. Merrick worked us in to his busy schedule the same day. He listened to what we had to say and was very clear in his explanation using an example we could relate to and understand. My son felt very comfortable talking to him. He provided excellent care and made himself available to us afterward for follow up.
