Our 1 year old son had two surgeries performed by Dr. Scherz and he was incredible. I can’t say enough about Dr. Scherz and the staff at Marietta Urology!
We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Scherz! We were referred to him by our pediatrician. He was extremely knowledgeable. You can tell by speaking with him that he has lots of experience! He anticipated my questions before I even asked them. He gave great explanations to our family and was patient with our 2 year old. He listened to our concerns, identified the issues and formulated a plan to care for our son. From consultation, to surgery, to post-op Dr. Scherz was an excellent physician and we are grateful for him! We always felt that we were in good hands! I would highly recommend Dr. Scherz for any pediatric urological care!
We've had an issue with our 4 year old son for over a year. His pediatrician didn't know what the cause was. A ten minute visit with Dr. Scherz solved everything. He explained in detail what the issue was and how to solve it. We've been so worried for so long and now at ease because the cause is very easy to fix. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You took our worries and anxiety away.
