This visit was to help figure some stuff going on with my son. Dr Mersch was very helpful. He took his time with us and made me feel like we were doing the right thing.

I brag about our children's Doctor Rick to everyone:) He's simply the best we have experienced anywhere we have been. His knowledge, his genuine care for his patients, his obvious love and passion for helping kids and their families, relatability, even calling us personally to follow up.

[When] our primary pediatrician wasn't available and they offered Dr. Mersch, I jumped on it. [They] are both rock stars and Rick did an awesome job with my son.

Since the nurse was gone, I asked Dr. Mersch when he came in if my son was due for his second HPV shot. He said the nurse would have taken care of it if it was due. He didn't look to verify it while we were in the room. We got to check out and I was a little frustrated and didn't want to leave the appointment without confirmation that we weren't missing a shot. I asked the person at check out to verify it for me, and my son was in fact due for his shot. We went back in the exam room and he received the shot.

So grateful to have Dr Mersch as our primary! He always takes his time with us and never acts like he needs to rush out to the next patient. He's so good with our kids and extremely knowledgeable!

Dr. Mersch is the best doctor in the office. We have 100% confidence in him and have since choosing him since my two children were born.
