Specialties

Dr. Jeffrey Merkle has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

A one on one type doctor, very thorough and knowledge way beyond just a generalist. Very highly recommended for both personality and skill. Follows up more than any other doctor I've ever had.

Well worth the wait

The first time I went to see Dr.Merkle I was quite annoyed by the wait time to just get into a room and the almost the same amount of time in the room. However, once he came in I completely understood why. He truely takes the time to know his patients. Not only does he care for u as a patient but as a person as well. I have been to his office 5 times in the last year and every time I felt as if I was the only person that was important to him at that time. Never did I feel rushed. He should be the model for all primary care physicians. I almost hate to write this review bc I would hate for him to get so many patients that things would change. But he well deserves a great review. (I have never written a review of anything or anyone online.)

Thankful to have been recommended to this doctor. He is fantastic, very caring, listens carefully, spends time with you. This is definitely not a McDoc (in and out like a fast food restaurant).
