What People Say About Dr. Andrew Merget, DPT

I can't say enough good things about Andrew. Right after my daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 11, he was a life-line. For such an uncertain condition he made us feel empowered and confident with her diagnosis and treatment. We have been doing Scroth Therapy with him for over a year and are seeing great results so far. No changes in her curves despite growing 2 inches, and we've also seen a decrease in rotation. My daughter's favorite thing about him is his smile. He has an easy way about him, explains things well and is very patient with worried momma's who ask the same questions over and over. We are so thankful for the opportunity to work with and learn from him.

Words cannot express the professionalism and wealth of knowledge Andrew Merget shares with his patients. My daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis, and he immediately changed the course of our journey. With his help and recommendations, a world renowned team began to share in the care of my daughter. Andrew took a great deal of time in educating our family in the process of dealing with and overcoming her condition. I will always look to Andrew to help us in the future as decisions are made regarding my daughter’s health. He truly is committed to solving every concern of each of his patients.

Dr Merget is a life saver. After countless doctor appointments, MRI’s and even physical therapy through another provider, my daughter had no answers about or relief from her back pain. Dr Merget spent quality time with her asking questions and evaluating her condition. Two weeks of therapy and she had 80% less pain. He is kind, caring and knowledgeable.

Working with Andrew was the best experience I've had in the healthcare field. He was extremely communicative about how he was diagnosing my hip pain and what conclusions he came to. Throughout my three weeks of appointments he and his staff we extremely professional, optimistic, and helpful. They also communicated realistic expectations for measurable progress. After being unable to play sports for 2 months+ I was back on the field within two weeks and pain free in three weeks. Highly recommend!

My experience with Dr. Merget and his staff was more than I could've asked for! I tried almost every therapy out there for a persistent back problem including a chiropractor, another PT, massage therapy, yoga, and several other specialized activity programs to alleviate pain, and nothing worked. I came to Dr. Merget's office skeptical that I would ever get better, but through their unique, personalized approach I am now pain free! I cannot thank him and his staff enough for the great experience!

Absolute pleasure working with Dr. Merget! First saw him, a year ago, with a knee injury and now seeing him for 2 new injuries. He immediately diagnosed my knee, impelemented a plan and had me in less pain the same day. Each visit made progress and eventually left me pain free. When I do get any pain, I've been educated well enough to treat it on my own. His methodology and practical treatment is phenomenal. It's a results based approach that proves itself each and every visit and at home!

I cannot say enough. When I first started with Andrew, I was skeptical as I have had PT before and was not pleased. He first won my confidence when he took his time and explained in detail what we were going to do and how he planned to remedy my problem. He's made a tremendous difference in my life and I can't imagine what my life would be like today if Andrew had not provided me with amazing physical therapy! I would not only recommend him but will personally sing his praises. I feel great
