Dr. Dunlap has been our family doctor for the past 14 years. He also cared for my husband's mother, one of our daughters and her husband during those years. We have all genuinely enjoyed his care. We have also been impressed that other doctors, pharmacists and other medical personnel speak very highly of Dr. Dunlap.

He truly is involved in our well-being in all aspects of our health. He is a very caring doctor. We trust Dr Dunlap to give us the best advice on medications, tests, etc. He has been our family doctor for several years; we appreciate the fact that he… See more

Dr. Dunlap always takes the time with you to make sure that he thoroughly knows what is going on with you. He is more of a healer than a doctor and that's what the world needs today.

from RENEE in NV February 6, 2014 for Merritt W. Dunlap, MD

In our first visit with Dr. Dunlap under MDVIP my husband and I learned things about our health that we had never heard before. We got attention to issues we didn't know we had and we became motivated to lose weight in a healthy way. (Other doctors had never talked to us about it.) We've each lost five pounds so far, and are excited about the care we are finally receiving. Thanks… See more
