Our experiences with Dr. Scherz and his staff have been nothing short of fabulous. The staff is personable, professional, and efficient. Laura, Dr. Scherz's nurse, was great as well. Both she and Dr. Scherz provided age appropriate care and education for my son. As a nurse, I'm pretty critical, but they exceeded my expectations!

Other than having to wait a little long in the waiting area the overall experience was very positive. The staff at the front were very helpful and the nurse and doctor who saw my son were very professional.

Dr. Scherz, his nurse (Laura?) and the receptionist were incredible. They were friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, and prepared. The nurse and doctor both demonstrated age appropriate care with my son and were fabulous in teaching. There is no doubt that we will refer anyone who needs pediatric urology to see this group!

Dr. Sherz, Is awesome. He knew that I just met all my out of pocket expenses for the year and made sure that the procedure would be covered under our insurance without any out of pocket cost. That’s a physician who cares.

Overall we had a great experience. Dr. Scherz performed a circumcision procedure for my 7 month old and all went well. He healed beautifully and follow up was easy. They went over after surgery care and let me know to call if I have any more questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend this practice. Thank you, for taking such good care of my little one.

I had a telemed appointment so for any questions asking about in-office visits I answered neutral.
