We just wanted to give our Dr. Merritt Dunlap here in beautiful Carson City, NV a BIG thank you for all of the time and work that he and the entire staff do thank you. What a GREAT team! Dr. Dunlap is amazing as he takes the time to greet me, ask questions and listens with concern.

Dr. Dunlap is extremely kind & caring. He never rushes through my visits & always listens to what is bothering me. He's gone the extra always in regards to my many prescription issues with the carrier! I lost my husband this year rather suddenly & has been there to advise & encourage me along during this awful time. He is also helping me with my disability issues. HE is… See more

from Mary in NV March 9, 2016 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

I was a patient of Dr. Dunlap prior to his joining MDVIP. I don't have many medical issues. Considering my age, that's pretty darn good. What I appreciate about his change to MDVIP is the improvement in the amount of time he can spend with me. He takes time to explain things to me and to be sure I understand. The office is never crowded and I have not had to wait to be seen. When I… See more

from Charles in NV March 8, 2016 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

Thank you for being there, day and night, to answer my questions and address my concerns. MDVIP has made the doctor/patient relationship a far better experience than conventional methods.

from Juanita in NV February 17, 2015 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

During the onset of dementia with my partner, Dr Dunlap was genuinely concerned on how the situation was going. He is always willing to listen to even the smallest problem, when I had a recent knee replacement even though he was not the original surgeon. If I have a gripe about drugs, service etc. from outside his office, he is always ready for a laugh.

from Deborah in NV February 14, 2015 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

Dr. Dunlap, I just took the survey, and although I haven't been to see you for the wellness exam yet, I just wanted to tell you how happy I am to be starting this whole process and coming back as your patient in this great program.

from Ken in NV February 13, 2015 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

Merritt Dunlap is the best doctor I have ever encountered. You are not just a number, but are treated as a human being. He is more than a great doctor; he is a friend who will do what it takes to provide the best medical care to me.

from ALICE in NV February 9, 2015 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

THANKS DOC FOR BEING AVAILABLE WHERE EVER WE ARE TO WHERE EVER YOU ARE -

from Diane in NV February 9, 2015 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

I feel he is truly interested in my health and well being. He is an exceptional doctor and I am blessed to be his patient. I have told may people about him and what excellent care he gives, also that is always available.
