An on-site surgery suite is available to offer the very highest quality of care and service as well as privacy, convenience, and cost savings to our patients. All cosmetic procedures are performed in our office outpatient surgery suite under local anesthesia or IV sedation. After a short recovery period, patients are able to return home.

Surgical Facility Certifications

Almost everyone has heard that they should look for “Board Certification” when seeking a qualified Plastic Surgeon. However, less emphasis has been placed on the certification of Ambulatory Surgical Centers. At her plastic surgery center in Valdosta, Dr. Merriman practices an unwavering commitment to provide the highest levels of quality of care to patients.

To provide that added security, ASC certification from Medicare, the State of Georgia and American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) has been obtained (State of Georgia ASCID 11-C0001229.) This accreditation allows the provision of that extra measure of confidence that our patients and the community deserves to have in its health care service providers.

Our Plan for Resuming In-Office Patient Care

We are pleased to annouce our very soft re-opening to patients this Monday, May 4th. We are not opening to full capacity as we are closely following the recommendations of the American Society of Plastic Surgery and our numerous professional affiliations and governing boards. We will be seeing a very limited number of patients per day. The following outlines our plan and what we are doing to keep you safe.


You will be called the day before your appointment and screened for any symptoms. Any symptoms will require rescheduling.

Upon your arrival your temperature will be taken and you will be asked to rescheduled if over 100.0.

You must wear a mask upon entering the building and will only remove if getting a procedure done on the face. We ask that you please bring a mask to your appointment. Due to limited availability we will provide a mask to you for a charge of $5.

No one can accompany you into the office unless there are significant mobility or communication issues you need help with and in that case only one person can come with you. You may not bring children to your appointment.

Our waiting room is closed. You may enter the building to check in and gather any paperwork you may require and return to your car. You will be called when your room is ready.

Office Safety and Sanitation

Employees will also complete a daily questionnaire and have their temperature taken and will be sent home if there are any symptoms. Employees will wear personal protective equipment throughout your entire visit.

Each room and all areas that patients and employees touch including office supplies or equipment will be sanitized thoroughly between patients according to CDC guidelines.

We have missed you and look forward to seeing you back in the office!
