The whole staff was courteous and we were seen within about 5 mins of checking in. Dr Scherz was very thorough and explained everything well.
Dr. Scherz and his staff are top notch. He listened to all of our questions and answered in ways that we understood. He was always very professional. His staff was always very kind and professional as well. The surgical procedure and all office visits for our child went well. Our child was comfortable with Dr. Scherz. We were very happy with our decision to seek out a pediatric urologist, even though our travel time was over 2 hours one-way each visit.
We have been seeing Dr. Scherz since our son was born. He is six now. Dr. Scherz has been a good healthcare provider. He is knowledgeable, personable, and caring. He takes the time to make sure my son is comfortable. We will continue to see him without reservations. The only issue we have had is with the radiology scheduler who took weeks to call us back for an appt at Children's after we called and left two messages over two weeks.
