      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Mertz's Care Philosophy

      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.
