Patient Testimonials for The Family Medicine Center

ABSOLUTELY adore Julie Castro! So glad she joined your staff!

FACEBOOK Post - August, 2013 by Betty B.

"The doctors see several patients each day, so I was impressed that the doctor who saw my daughter remembered her, even though it had been a year since her last appointment."
Claire V.

"I love you guys! My family has been seeing Dr. Mergy for the last 15 years. He is a great doctor and is our doctor for life!"
Steve S.

"I like their availability. The doctors here are great. I've had three good doctors; they take the time to really listen to what your saying to them. And they take the time to run tests to make sure everything is going fine. They send you letter or call you to let you know what your test results were. My overall experience with this provider is excellent." Lorelies G.

"My doctor there listens very well. She is always looking into new things for me because of my diabetes."
