mercedes is also exceptioal with my children. Also pleasant and makes my baby feel ao comfortable. also, the medical assistant we saw this visit was amazing. She was the best medical assistant we have ever had in office. I do believe her name was felicia.
She was so nice and helpful
Mercedes was amazing. She was very attentive, and took our concerns seriously. She spoke to me that day with bloodwork results, it was amazing to see a provider that on top of everything. She is the best! I am very grateful my son got to see her!

The doctor was fantastic with our first newborn appointment and answered all of our questions as first time parents.

waa very busy with sick kids
this was a newborn appointment. the provider was kind, easy going and wonderfully spirited. she was helpful in understanding my concerns.
We almost missed walk in hours but the providers took my daughter back right away to check her heart rate.
Mercedes has become both of my daughters preferred physician when needing checkup appointments. She is patient and listens to my teenage daughters questions and any concerns.
overall a good office visit for just walking in. it took approximately one hour total.
she was wonderful! very caring and very thorough.
Mercedes is Wonderful! I could not ask for a better provider.
She was fantastic!!
I love that I can walk in after work if my child is sick without an appointment. I am very appreciative of Mercedes and the time she takes with him. even being in the medical field myself, she thinks of things I didn't and even calls after hours with results so I'm not worried all night. She is great!
provider was beyond wonderful
Both of children love Mercedes! She always goes above and beyond to make them feel comfortable and feel heard.
Great experience, great care
Very polite and respectful
amazing! Mercedes was born to work with children and she was very knowledgeable and helpful!

She really listened to my questions and concerns.
she was very friendly and gentle with my daughter.she also engaged with my other children as well .
This was our first visit to this provider; however each person there went above and beyond my expectations in the best way possible, and I am thrilled that they seem to be excellent and caring and respectful of us.
Overall good experience.
she was patient and kind. my son loved hee and so did i. when she came in to reassess him after his breathing treatment she let him finish watching his video because she didnt want to upset him. he also had never had a treatment before so she put pbs kids on the computer for him.
Mercedes was so patient with us! She took her time and so thorough and so sweet!
Everyone was quick, courteous, efficient, professional.
The whole experience was amazing and I'm glad we're going here.
We asked to see Mercedes Uhl because she is a female and my child had concerns that she did not want the male physician (who we also really like and respect) to check. She feels very comfortable with Mercedes because she is down to earth, kind, and relatable and also because as a female, and for this visit in particular, my female child was more comfortable seeing her a sensitive matter. Mercedes is an excellent care-provider and we will continue to see her in future visits.
We usually see Dr Tate for wellness appts. This was a walk in and we saw Mercedes and Dr Tate also came in for further instruction. Mercedes is wonderful and very helpful with everything. She listens to all we have to say and helps with everything.
Great visit. Took care of concerns and answered questions.
Mercedes was very nice and took the time to listen to my son and I.
We loved the provider we saw last visit. My son is so scared going to the doctors and she was so wonderful with him. She was patient, talked to him to calm him down, and made him feel comfortable.
She made my daughter feel comfortable and relaxed with her bubbly personality and welcoming attitude. My daughter wants to see her for all future appts!
Mercedes is extremely nice and more than helpful. You can genuinely tell she cares so much for what she does.
She is able to relate to my kid by asking simple questions they can understand.
Aside from the strep throat diagnosis, we had a very good experience. Uhl creates a comfortable, inviting atmosphere for the children. She explains things in a way that the children can really relate to, and puts them at ease. I was very pleased with the experience.
I was very happy with the provider. She spent time with us and did not hurry out the door.
My daughter was treated with respect and our questions were answered promptly. Kindness from all was what we carried with us home.
It was a rough night and my child and I were exhausted from not sleeping, But the receptionist and Doctor were quick and courteous
Both my son and I were very pleased with Mercedes Uhl providing my son's annual well-visit. She was very easy to talk with and seemed very knowledgable.
Mercedes is an excellent medical provider. we have seen her a few times and she is excellent.
Mercedes is very caring and always wants to make sure that my son or daughter is well taken care of and gets all the treatment that is needed. She is excellent.
Dr. Uhl seen all 4 of my children & was absolutely phenomenal with each of them. She spoke to each one of them & took her time with them. She answered all of my questions & listened to my concerns & is currently treating them.
Mercedes is one of my favorites to schedule visits with. She wants to help in every way and not just rush you along.
Mercedes is ALWAYS a great listener and isn't afraid to ask other providers for their advice and to consult on annalways tricky diagnosis for my daughter. she is kind, gentle, compassionate, understanding, and even a great sense of humor
