Patient Reviews
Feb 26, 2022
Out of the 10 Doctors I have seen at UPMC and AHN, Dr. Mertz was the only doctor to figure out that I had an IgG deficiency. He reviewed all of my records from when I was a child, during and after chemotherapy, did a number of test to figure out what I had. I’d recommend him to my friends and family. 10/10.

About Me

Care Philosophy
  • My philosophy is to care for the whole person and treat patients as if they were family. I also have a PharmD. and practiced pharmacy for 10 years prior to becoming a physician. I practiced primary care for two years for the National Heath Service Corps in an under served community prior to my training to become an allergist. I personally have asthma, allergies and eczema. I have a child with food allergy. So, I feel that this gives me greater understanding of what my patients may experience.
