Cariza Mercurio MD chose to go into medicine because it allows her to serve the community by empowering and supporting women in making decisions that affect their lives. Her specialty of OB/Gyn especially allows her to counsel women and accompany them through life’s joys, such as pregnancy and birth as well as setbacks. In her free time she loves to craft using her Cricut maker, cook and hike. Her patients would be surprised to learn that she married her high school sweetheart. They like to travel and spend time together with their dog.

I really like this physician. She's very knowledgeable about my condition and provides service that I feel is adequate for what's going on with me. She's sincere and she seems like she cares.

Dr Mercurio was super amazing! She was kind, professional, knowledgable and very pleasant. She had the best positive attitude. Heard and answered all my questions. She made me feel very comfortable and took her time. I did not feel rushed at all with her. She is the best!.

Yes, the response time for setting up appointments, they put you on hold for at least 30 minutes before you get someone to make an appointment. So that time should come down a 30 minute hold call just to make an appointment. It's just not acceptable.

The time that it took to be service was great. I would just recommend that the front desk staff here make eye contact as when I did check in they were not making any eye contact and it took awhile for us to connect. So I would just encourage the receptionist to look up my eye contact and welcome patient that they're walking in but everyone else was awesome. Once we once I was able to speak to receptionist and she was able to look at me and connect with me the experiences a lot better. She's very friendly. It was just that initial engagement everyone else like the back office staff the doctor. They were all very very great. I really enjoyed my experience.

Dr. Mercurio was very kind and knowledgeable. She answered all questions I had in detail and even gave me visual demonstrations of some of the things going on with my body. Which was nice because I am a visual person and learner. I would definitely recommend her to everyone I know.

I do not recommend Dr. Cariza Mercurio for prenatal care. She rushes through the appointment, particularly the ultrasound, and does not take time to explain what you are looking at on the screen. She lacks compassion, genuine attitude toward caring for a pregnant woman, and was dismissive when I had questions. This was the most inexperienced doctor I have ever met.

For some reason my insurance company changed my provider without my consent. I immediately changed back to PIH. PIH provides the best quality care for me and my family.
