“Dr. Merriman injected my third Euflexxa injection in my left knee. He is so good at it that I might not have known he had done it if I hadn't been watching. All three of my injections were painless, and seeing Dr. Merriman is always an enjoyable experience.”

“Within 10 minutes of meeting Dr. Vellios, I knew he would be my shoulder surgeon. He is a wonderful surgeon, person, and fine man. I am four months into my recovery and could not be more pleased with the procedure. My PT at SCOI on Nobel is fantastic. I am on session #28 and am thrilled with the entire staff, from the check-in/scheduling personnel to my therapists, Rachel and Ashley. What a wonderful group of professionals.”
