    Dr. Merkley is the best! We are so lucky to have him as our doctor. He talks with my kids and makes them feel comfortable. He asks them questions directly which I really appreciate. He is very knowledgeable and caring. I work as a pediatric nurse and I have worked with many physicians. Dr Merkley is the best, I wouldn't take my kids anywhere else.

    I really like Dr Merkley. He is friendly, and relatable, he doesn't seem "high and mighty" but like he's along side you in the trenches. I really like his personality and he seems smart, but laid back, realistic, but knowledgeable.

    Dr. Merkley listened and administered a test that he hadn't done before, but i felt like it could be helpful so he was willing to try it. He always listens very carefully to my concerns and talks them out with me. I appreciate that my visits never feel rushed. I always feel like he genuinely wants to help my daughter with her health.

    Dr. Merkley is great! I had to take a call to ensure my other child had pick up accommodations (appointment was the same time as school dismissal) and Dr. Merkley was very understanding of this. He interacted with my child who was being seen and made me feel like it was okay for mom to attend to my mom duties over the phone.
