    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 was great to listen to my concerns and help me in understanding what was going on. He was great to help me in telling me what to watch for in my other family members.

    Dr. Merkley is a favorite at our house. He really connects with my children and is attentive to me as well. We appreciate his care and concern and all the help he has given us.

    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.

    Dr. Merkley, the front desk, and MA were great. It was a smooth and timely experience. Thank you Dr. Merkley!

    He listened very well to my concerns and even tested for influenza when I hadn't even thought about that; it definitely helped put my mind at ease.

    I have been very pleased with the drs. & nurses & this clinic.

    Experienced on Jan 31, 2019

    The nurse was competent, but didn't seem great with my child (7), who the appointment was for. Dr. Merkley was competent, but didn't show much respect for me or my child, didn't seem very patient.

    overall great experience. Our needs were met in a quick efficient manner which helped in a quick healing process.
