This was our second visit here and our experience has been phenomenal both times. My son was born with some extra fluid in his kidney- hydronephrosis. We came here for an evaluation and today a follow up. This is a wonderful practice. We were in and out in 30-45 mins both times. Dr. Hal Scherz is great! He shows compassion and was comforting easying a mothers anxiety by explaining everything thoroughly. He was great with my son, keeping him calm and entertained during the ultrasound. The rest of staff were also very friendly and made us feel welcomed and comfortable. I highly recommend GA Urology in Marietta and Dr. Scherz!

Dr. Scherz took amazing care of my son as he had to undergo a hydrocele repair. He took his time to speak with us before and after surgery, helping us to feel at ease throughout the entire process. The surgery went very smoothly and recovery was a breeze.

Doctor Scherz was a gift! When a baby needs a procedure, no matter how routine, it’s a challenging time for the parents. Dr. Scherz made it as comfortable as possible for us. His bedside manner comforted both our baby and his anxious parents. We can’t recommend him enough!

Dr. Scherz was amazing. He not only has wonderful bedside manner, but also is an excellent, seasoned surgeon. Our son was well cared for and we couldn’t be happier with our experience. My husband is a surgeon so we really got picky about who we wanted to operate on our son. He did not disappoint. You are in great hands with Dr. Scherz.
