Dr. Scherz and Ms. Laura (RN) handled my son Michael my son with great care and attention. We made the decision to perform a procedure on the skin bridge/adhesion Michael had while in visit. The procedure was performed efficiently and based on how Michael is healing, the procedure was performed effectively as well. Thank you.
