What People Say About Dr. Raquel Mercado-Sepulveda, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Mercado for the past 5 years. I recently gave birth to my son with her help and guidance. She was absolutely amazing throughout my prenatal care and answered all my questions and was empathetic to my worries and was able to ease those worries. During delivery, she made me feel comfortable and confident labor was going to go well. She delivered my healthy baby boy and I couldn’t be more thankful for her professionalism and knowledge. Not only is she an amazing doctor, but she also has an amazing team who are always available and care for your needs and questions. Dr. Mercado puts her patients first and makes sure all of their medical needs are met and answers questions. I highly recommend Dr. Mercado!

I would give her 0 stars if I could. The customer service is terrible. I called multiple times within a month to fix a prescription, assured that they were going to fix it, just to have to call the following week. Once they finally realized what the problem was, they denied that I was a patient and said that I must come in if I wanted a prescription. Simply put, Dr. Mercado without harmony OBGYN is not the same.

La mejor ginecóloga. Excelente trato, muy profesional, respetuosa. Llegué a Tucson con 20 semanas de Embarazo y buscado un ginecólogo, acudí con ella porque tenía muy buenos reviews y desde la primera cita me encantó su trato y calidez. Te hace sentir muy a gusto en cada cita, ya sea por embarazo o cualquier otra consulta. Atendió mis partos y fue una muy buena experiencia, te da confianza, trato muy humano, te explica todo y te da mucha seguridad que todo va a salir bien. excelente persona

I had a different OB to begin with, but the night I miscarried Dr. Mercado was on call. She was outstanding at her job and genuinely cares about what she does and the patient she is caring for. She made the worst time in my life seem slightly better and reassured me. I scheduled my checkup with her instead of my original OB and I am glad I did! She is a fantastic doctor and I highly recommend her to any woman looking for a better doctor. She is one of the best in Tucson!

I went to see her for a condition after my pregnancy. She ignorant of natural breastfeeding, the AAP and WHO recommendations. She told me my 7 month old was only nursing "for comfort" when it is recommended to nurse to 2 years or longer, so long as it is mutually desired. She then proceeded to run tests on me that I did not approve, which makes me feel absolutely violated. And the kicker is I had to PAY her to have her make me feel Violated. Absurd! Never recommend her to anyone.

So friendly and helpful! The wait can be long sometimes, but I know she is delivering babies non stop so it never bothered me. She always took the time to answer my questions and make me feel comfortable.

This was my first pregnancy, I was nervous about everything, she came into the room rushing like the building was on fire, after I had waited for 40 minutes freezing with no bottoms on. She told me if I had any questions to refer to a handbook I would be given, spent 10 minutes with me, including the time she did my ultrasound. Only got to hear the heartbeat for 3 seconds, did not reassure me about anything. Wouldnt give me the time to ask any questions, or explain anything about future apts.

She is by far the BEST OBGYN I have encountered so far. She is very caring and such a sweet lady. Yesterday was my first time ever meeting her and she walked in the room greeting my husband and I with a hug no doctors really hug their patients but she made me feel so loved and welcomed. She definitely knows what she's doing and she has a passion for what she does and that's the best thing about her. I highly recommend her for anyone.
