I will just start out stating that Dr.Merta is a wonderful OBGYN Doctor. The first time I went to see him was when I just found out I was 9 weeks pregnant he allowed me to address all of my concerns and questions in regards to my pregnancy before he started making his recommendations. Dr.Merta was able to come in the hospital and delivered my baby boy. I did not have any tears or major lacerations. He is patient doctor who will go above and beyond to make sure his patient is safe.

Dr. Merta is amazing. I was referred to him by my own mom and have been with him since 2013. I have referred him to several women in my family and some friends as well. Definitely the right choice for a good doctor and trusted advisor.
