Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mertz "My philosophy is to care for the whole person and treat patients as if they were family. I also have a PharmD. and practiced pharmacy for 10 years prior to becoming a physician. I practiced primary care for two years for the National Heath Service Corps in an under served community prior to my training to become an allergist. I personally have asthma, allergies and eczema. I have a child with food allergy. So, I feel that this gives me greater understanding of what my patients may experience."
