    We have loved going to Red Rock Pediatrics. All the workers there are kind and friendly. Dr. Merkley is very professional to work with. He doesn't make you feel like he's in a hurry. He listens and answer every question and concerns you may have without rushing like he really cares.

    Because of visitor restrictions, I [...] was not able to be in this appointment so my husband called and had me on speaker phone. Dr. Merkley was amazing and addressed all of my questions and concerns and didn't make me feel rushed or silly for any of my questions. I was very pleased with him as the doctor caring for my son and I am so so grateful we chose him as our pediatrician and that he was accepting new patients at this time.
