Bureaucracy stands between many patients and the compassionate care of Bryan Merrick, M.D. Merrick, his family, and his patients need your help to help him restore his privileges with Medicare.
Carroll County is a medically underserved area and has a high percentage of its population using Medicare as its primary source of health insurance.
The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Only if Dr. Merrick is able to reverse the ruling can he restore privileges with Medicare. It is your turn to show your support of Dr. Merrick. Here is how:
