Patient Comments (4)
in Goshen, IN |
I have been going to Dr. Mertz for as long as he has been in practice in Goshen. He is a very compassionate, considerate, and thorough doctor. There are three generations of my family currently using him. as their family doctor. I wouldn't ever want to go to another. He is more than a primary care physician, I consider him my friend. A solid Christian man that I respect.
Goshen, In |
Not thorough. Quick to overly medicate problems and won't refer complicated issues out for second opinion. Poor bedside manner, will never look you in the eyes. Very nice staff overall though.
in Goshen, IN |
Absolutely trust this doctor and his nurse practitioner in the treatment they provide their patients. I have been a patient at this practice for many years. Dr. Mertz is kind and compassionate and a very good doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.
