I wasn't pleased with Dr Mercurio's visit. I have been seen by other Doctors in the past and I had the most pleasant experience except with this particular Doctor.

I often get treated differently and sometimes made to feel less then human because of my weight but Dr. Mercurio and her nurse were very nice and tried really hard to make a not so pleasant procedure a little easier to go through. I Thank them very much

I've never felt so comfortable and not judged by a female provider dealing with women issues ever until now! . We're already uncomfortable talking about what goes on down there but doctor made me feel comfortable enough to explain my issues and not embarrassed. Thank you so much!

Dr. Mercurio is always so personable. She takes the time to understand my problems and involves me in coming up with a treatment plan. I'm so happy to have her as my doctor!

Hi, my name is [PHI removed]. I just wanted to give feedback on when I left the doctor's office. I was leaving and I have my two grandkids. So I was kind of irritated by the time I got out of there, but I had asked the doctor to give me a doctor's note and I never received it. So I got all the way to my car and realized that I didn't receive the doctor's note for work. So, I went back up there inconveniently, asked the front desk and she said that she can't take care of that. She has to see if the girl hasn't left to lunch yet. So I told her well, can't you just email it to me? And she says, no, I can't. I have to ask a certain girl that gets that. And the certain girl wasn't there. So I took it upon myself to go to the back before she even came back and asked the ladies back there. And they all gave me attitude because I guess they were going to lunch. I don't know what the situation was, but it was hard just to get my doctor's excuse and it made me very upset because I didn't get it in the first place.

Excellent experience with the doctor yesterday. She's wonderful in all ways and has a ton of knowledge. I enjoyed my visit.

It is upsetting that I am no longer treated like a patient, like a person due to my vaccination status. I never said I was against the vaccine but that I needed to get to my 6months of pregnancy for my own state of mind. Her only recommendation was to get vaccinated and showed no regard for the anxiety, stress, and panic I feel. She basically compared the pregnant nurses that have to work under worse Covid exposure as if we are all the same. Different people handle things differently. My mental health is different from others and It is very disappointing to have my own doctor show no empathy and be so dismissive.

They calle me to vefify my insurance the wk prior to my appt, I gave them all my information. When I got there it was a mess, nobody knew what was going on with my insurance. They were telling me I wasn't active when I had the information in my phone. At the end they figured out it was a mistake on their part for not putting in my insurance information correctly but first they made me sign a waiver for their mistakes. Not first time this happens.

Dr. Mercurio was awesome! She made me feel comfortable and had a way of settling me as I was deepen concerned w/my medical condition. I appreciate her
November 04, 2021
Dr. Mercurio is extremely pleasant and very down to Earth; she makes me feel very comfortable and is very informative in everything she does. Thanks again Dr. Mercurio!

I have never felt so comfortable at a "women's check-up appointment." The doctor put me ease with her friendliness during the exam and really took the time to listen to my concerns and give me some valuable feedback. I really appreciated the time she spent with me. Thank you.
November 01, 2021
Very nice and friendly. Spent plenty of time with me and explained things well. Didn't feel rushed
November 01, 2021
Very kind provider. Spent time to get to know me and speak with me during our visit
October 19, 2021
The provider was excellent in listening and explaining. I used to have Kaiser which was for the most part, an unsatisfactory experience. So seeing this new provider was a relief to actually be listened to and not rushed off.

I appreciate that dr Mercurio didn't make feel bad since I was returning for my same complaint...issue.
October 14, 2021
Thank you for making me feel comfortable and heard.

I was very happy with their response. They made me an appointment right away that was taken care of right away, I didn't have to wait a long time, the receptionist, we're very courteous. The doctor was very, she was able to explain everything. So simple for me. It wasn't difficult to understand what you were saying, and she was very kind. I would I would recommend her or somebody else if I have to. Definitely. Bye.

Dr Mercurio is hands down the best doctor I've ever had. She takes the time to really listen to my questions and concerns and always responds thoughtfully and thoroughly. I am so thankful to have found her!
October 07, 2021
I felt like I was not heard throughout the appointment and felt like the doctor was trying to rush and didn't listen to what I said. She was being rude
October 05, 2021
Great experience altogether.
October 01, 2021
Dr. Mercurio was very professional. Very friendly. Very understanding. Confidential. Very... she seems very knowledgeable, and I was very happy with her. She even called me on a Sunday to give me my results. Imagine that she is the best. Thank you.
