Additional Information

Immunizations have saved thousands upon thousands of lives, according to Dr. Nau, who also calls immunizations the greatest advancement in medicine. Dr. Nau says there is no evidence that immunizations cause autism. "There is nothing worse than losing a child ... We have a way to prevent it," he says.

Dr. Nau is a very compassionate doctor. He spends time with our daughter and genuinely cares about trying to help her (she is severely disabled and very complex)! He is thorough and listens to us as parents and our concerns. He is absolutely, hands down the best pediatrician we have ever had!

We've never had anything but the best experiences at Mercy!
September 03, 2018
I scheduled the Well Check/School Physicals for both of my children 12 months in advance. the appointment was changed 4 times by the clinic, the last time being less than 1 week before school started causing me to have to completely re-arrange my work schedule to get them in before school started. I was very frustrated to say the least and honestly was close to switching clinics.

Dr. Nau is thorough and shows great care for our daughter. We are extremely satisfied with his care.
