Dr. Lee Merritt

Dr. Lee Merritt began her medical career at the age of four, carrying her father’s “black bag” on housecalls, along the back roads of Iowa. In 1980 she graduated from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York, where she was elected to life membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Merritt completed an Orthopaedic Surgery Residency in the United States Navy and served 0ver 10 years as a Navy physician and surgeon. In 1989 she was the only woman to be appointed as the Louis A. Goldstein Fellow of Spinal Surgery at the University of Rochester, Strong Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Merritt has been in the private practice of Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery 1992-2021, has served on the Board of the Arizona Medical Association, and is past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

As a lifelong advocate of free market, patient-centered medicine Dr. Merritt had the opportunity to appear on the John Stossel show to speak against Obamacare. She became a "Medical Rebel" after realizing that the honorable practice of medicine has been perverted to serve a technocracy whose goal is not wellness, but enslavement. She is one of Americas Frontline Doctors, and her speech on the "Myth of Masks" was widely viewed, leading to her investigation by the Iowa Board of Medicine, and truncation of her Orthopaedic career.

She is married and the proud mother of two wonderful young men. As a 4th Generation Iowan, in her spare time, Dr. Merritt raises North American Dirt Parrots *, does electro-gardening, and enjoys a rural lifestyle. She has had a long interest in wellness and fitness, and was Fellowship Certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. At age 63 she won a female bodybuilding championship in Physique Class—with a lot of help from her friends and patience of her family. *Chickens are illegal in her small town, in spite of the fact that her state is the Chicken Capitol of America and her town used to be a thriving place which held annual Chicken Day celebrations. But, of course Dr. Merritt would never violate any city ordinance.
