Dr. Mertzlufft is an excellent choice for your eye care. Personable, friendly and willing to take all the time it takes to explain your eye care. I have been seeing him for a few years now and would highly recommend him. The office staff as well do an excellent job before and during the pandemic to make your visit comfortable.

Very impressive exam. Dr. Mertzlufft explained everything in depth. I actually went to dr. Mertzlufft for a second opinion. Dr. Mertzlufft told me I could wait a couple years to fix my cataracts, whereas my former doctor told me it was imperative I have the corrective surgery asap. My husband was present and was impressed. He plans to switch as well

What a nice guy! He went beyond the call of duty and gave me some advice on one of the meds I am taking. Prior to my session with Dr. Mertzluft, I had Jared (?) do the routine tests. he did a good job, too.
