Hear from patients just like you
Gena had a condition called trigeminal neuralgia which caused her to have unexplained chronic facial pain for seven years. A friend gave her a recommendation to see Dr. Mericle. “I could tell he was down to earth and he’d sit down and talk to me about anything or any questions I had,” Gena says. After the surgery Gena reports that she feels a lot better. “I smile a lot more!” she says, “I feel like doing more things. I would recommend Dr. Mericle for anything that he does.”
For about seven years, David suffered from chronic low-grade lower back pain. An active athletic person, David was concerned when his pain began to prevent him from staying mobile. David needed lumbar fusion surgery. He never had surgery before so the prospect made him nervous. On his first visit, Dave met the staff and Dr. Ulm, who greatly put his mind at ease. “There was no pressure to make a decision on surgery,” he says. “It was amazing just being able to stand up without pain.” In a year Dave was back to playing golf and running marathons.
