Patient Comments (5)
in Mount Juliet, TN |
He was our family doctor for more than 10 years. While he was initially OK, over the years he has become solely about the money and not his patients. When he prescribed tests for me he and his office refused to tell me why they were recommended or give me an estimate of the cost. When my wife recently tried to make an appointment for out 10 year old daughter his office told us she hadn't been there for too long and thus had to be treated as a new patient and she couldn't get an appointment.

The worse doctor I ever had. He doesn't spend a lot of time with you. He doesn't listen to you. I told him the flu shot have always made me sick. He insisted that I take it, because it wasn't a live virus. Three days later I was back in his office very sick. All he cares about is MONEY.

Dr Mertin's is very caring and takes his time and listens to you. He has saved my life before. He makes sure that I only have the test run that I need. His staff are still caring also. Thank you for caring.
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.
