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

    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.

    We switched providers to Dr. Merkley because I feel like he talks to me on my level, is patient with questions, and is fantastic with my sons.

    He is AMAZING! I have called him in the middle of the night. He is the best and I trust him SO much!

    He was a great doctor, he wasn’t awkward, he was very informative.

    In a prior visit,Dr. Merkley was doing a well child check and asked my older kids if I leave them alone in the bathtub and if I had his car seat facing the correct way. And I think it just came across as he was like asking,I don't know I just thought it was inappropriate to ask my other kids those questions. I would prefer that he just ask me if we're sitting with him when he's in the tub or if his car seat was facing correctly or how we had him in the car seat. it just came off a little off putting so that's my biggest feedback.

    Yes I really appreciated the time he spent and that he listened to what my concerns were, he engaged my child that's always nice, and I just appreciated the time he spent. My regular provider was out and so I always get nervous seeing a different 1 and so I really I won't have any concerns about seeing him again if my provider is not available. Thank you so much for all your help.

    Dr. Merkley is one of the best pediatricians and we've seen several at Utah Pediatrics, from Kid's Care and different things and he is just fantastic. He takes time and he answers questions. He always knows what's going on with your kids and remembers them. I would just highly recommend him to anyone.
