Excellent. Both Dr Mersberger and his nurse (I can't remember her name) were fantastic considering the nature of my appointment. They identified that a abnormal pre-surgery EKG performed at another facility was incorrect by redoing the ekg which came back normal. The original abnormal ekg would have prevented/delayed my surgery and caused me extra unnecessary tests and medical costs. I feel confident having them as my primary care providers. I work in the healthcare field so I know low-quality clinics and clinicians exist. This is NOT the case at this facility. Solid clinic.
May 14, 2020
Absolutely love Dr. Mersberger and all staff. They are all very caring. My wife and I will definitely recommend to others in need of a great medical facility! Thank you!

Mar 15, 2020
I have just met Dr. Mersberger. I realized after I left that there were things I didn't bring up like the hormones I'm taking and that they are not covered by my insurance and how to work with that. I liked the doctor. He was friendly, not rushed and I didn't have a "problem" to address.

Feb 20, 2020
Dr Merseberger is compassionate, understanding and truly cares about his patients. he listened to every concern I had. Most doctors DON'T Do this now. He Taylor's your treatment plan to your body and not everyone else's. Medicines and treatments that work for others generally do not work for everyone. He gets it! Great doctor!
