Have you seen Dr. Scott Mercer?

This doctor has no after hours answering service. Option number 5 on the phone tree just hangs up. You can not reach him when there is a critical call.
I reluctantly write this review
Posted on April 14th, 2016
I hesitate to write this review, because Dr. Mercer is outstanding, probably the best primary care physician I have ever had. It felt like he spent all the time needed to diagnose my problems and be sure that I was satisfied discussing any problem. Seriously, he's a great doctor - I just don't want to fight a throng getting an appointment, so I write this glowing recommendation with some trepidation.

Other than being an excellent doctor he's a good listener and never rushes to get to his next patient. His support staff easily rates a 10.
Man of the Month
Posted on November 20th, 2013
Have been going to Dr. Mercer for 15 plus years. Office staff changed a few years ago and most of the "office issues" ended at that point. It was a long time in coming and a sign that Dr. Mercer is a very understanding and compassionate person. He is a very good doctor and takes the time to address all the issues. As a foot note to those of you that make an appointment for an ingrown toe nail and then wait to tell the doctor âthe rest of the Storyâ, be honest up front and then them you are coming in for the hemorrhoids, STDâs or other personal issue. That is a slightly longer exam then the toe nail. As with any appointment, call ahead day of and confirm your appointment, and ask if they are on time.
Needs to be considerate of patients time!

Excellent doctor without "attitude"
Posted on October 20th, 2012
Dr. Mercer is an excellent doctor with a wonderful, down-to-earth attitude. This is an "old-fashioned" doctors office, all in a good way. He and his staff have a special way of showing, and earning, respect. After a few visits, you can see why they all work together so well and why the clinic has thrived for so many years.Dr. Mercer spends the time necessary to address concerns. He really shines on follow-up visits and compassionately helps patients navigate a sometimes troublesome health system.He doesn't pretend to know it all; he readily admits it if it is something he doesn't know, making his advice seem all the more reliable, and the doctor-patient relationship so much more enjoyable.All in all, he's one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He doesn't come on strong, he's even a bit reserved at first, but if you give him, and his staff, time to grow on you, you'll be glad you did.
Really like his nurse practitioner
Posted on August 7th, 2012
I have seen both Dr. Mercer and his nurse practitioner Lynn. I like them both, but I especially like the nurse practitioner. She was very thorough and seemed to genuinely care about me. I did have to wait a little bit but she was so good it was worth the wait! The front and back office staff are very good too. The office could use a little up-dating but overall very good
I LOVE DR MERCER AND HIS STAFF

i would recommend Dr mercer to anyone and everyone. I have been seeing him for years. There has been some change in staff members but it has all been for the better. Kelly and Lara are so nice and helpful. I feel that the Doc really cares.

Is he burned out?
Posted on July 2nd, 2011
Is he burned out? They just couldn't seem to get it together. Had been sick for 6-8 weeks and swollen glands to boot. He ordered blood tests. Two weeks later they still couldn't locate them. I finally DROVE to the lab and got copies and FAXED them to the office. They still couldn't get it together to call me back. I know he knows what he is doing but he is apparently too burned out to do any follow up! I will be changing doctors shortly! I called them on a Tuesday to address this and as of Friday no one had called me back!
Dr. Mercer is wonderful!!!
Posted on February 3rd, 2011
He and his staff are a joy! I would recommend him to anyone and have done so. He's informative, caring, and truly cares about his patients. Selina is a wonderful front desk assistant, and the nurses are caring and, all I can say is that, I feel better after leaving his office.
