I’ve had a great experience with Dr.Scherz and also his staff, everyone is very friendly and professional. All my questions and concerns were well answered and very informative. My son had to get surgery in October @6 months old and i was beyond nervous & scared for him. Dr.Scherz made sure i was updated frequently during his surgery and gave me a sense of reassurance! After surgery he gave me instructions on how to treat it & care for it so it would heal properly. Followed his instructions & my son healed up fast, Surgery went great! I highly recommend him for anybody looking or in need of a Pediatric urologist , he is the best !

My son and I visited Dr. Scherz for the first time recently. He was professional and friendly. I could tell that he had reviewed my son's chart thoroughly as he summarized our concerns, but he also listened to my account of everything as well. He reviewed the details of an upcoming surgical procedure and left us feeling informed.

We are so thankful for Dr Scherz!! He has been treating my child since he was born. We were so lost and overwhelmed at the beginning of our child’s diagnosis, but not only has Dr. helped us navigate through this but also performed all of my son’s flawless surgeries! Thank you for being awesome! We don’t know what we would have done without his guidance and support! Extra bonus: Laura and his staff are exceptional as well!

Concerned that I wasn’t given any feed back from my daughters urodynamic testing this morning. Will the dr or nurse contact me to schedule a follow up? I just feel left in the dark.
