Dr Merkler has cared for my daughter since her birth in 2010. Always caring, attentive, and patient.
As the parent who has children that are patients of Dr. Merkler I'm always satisfied with the service he provides for them
Beyond competent care provided consistently, and very thorough. I am extremely satisfied with the care and attention provided to my children. I highly recommend Dr. Merkler.
Dr. Merkler is kind and patient; his office is safe (only 1 kid/parent allowed in the waiting room at this time), and there are no unexpected charges. We are very happy. Thank you Dr. Merkler!
