I love Dr Park. She listens and lets you know she cares. She doesn’t wait to take action when needed and refers when she knows she needs another expert to help. I trust Dr. Park with all my HEART! (no pun intended)So glad I was referred to her. I’m in great hands now!!

Dr. Mercer is smart, experienced, and honest. She listens to what I have to say and then asks relevant questions. She respects what I have to say and honors my opinions.

Review for Dr. Mercer

As an established patient with a UTI, I was told that I could make an appointment later in the week. Obviously these people have never had a UTI.I was told the doctor needed to 'see me.' Sure, whatever.
