Dr. Mehrle , I strongly recommend that if you need hip replacement surgery you look no further than his office. Dr Mehrle is excellent at his profession and compassionate with his patients. He has done surgery on my hips and I am very thankful for his help.
in Philadelphia, MS |
I was thoroughly pleased with the treatment, procedure, follow up and overall care provided by Dr. Mehrle and his staff. No problems with therapy and I saw some people that were struggling because of the physician that did their surgery. Great experience and I would highly recommend his services.
in Pearl, MS |
This man has done more work me. Two hips and a knee.. Ive had a fused hip for 38 years. Every doctor ive ever saw said nothing could be done. I came and seen Dr. Merhrle for a knee replacement and he asked why i had never had my fused hip replaced? I said because ive always been told it could be fixed. He laughed and said i think i can make your life a little better. And he did . even after going in a finding a major tendon gone and he made one from a cadaver tentendon. Dr. mehrle is my hero...
Paul, we're fans of yours. Thank you so much.
in Byram MS |
I went through a pretty traumatic experience and from day one he made me feel as if this was nothing and if it were not for his kindness and knowledge I don't know how I would have made it. He instilled confidence in me with the choices I made.
We are so very pleased to hear that you made it. Our goal every day is to help our patients return to normal activity safely and fully.
