      Dr. Mertens is very nice and personable. I didn't feel rushed as I do with most doctors and he seemed to genuinely care to be in the room. It is sad that this is extraordinary, but it is. He was super helpful and seems knowledgeable. Staff was polite and didn't waste time doing their job or seem in a bad mood as is often the case (in my experience) in healthcare. Definitely recommend.

      Dr Mertens has been our family doctor for 7 years and has treated me and my 5 children. He has proven to be a caring and competent family physician. He has always taken the time to explain conditions, ask and answer questions with patience and understanding.

      Mertens is all about the money and doesn't care about his patients

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
