For more than 30 years, Dr. Mertz has dedicated himself to providing his patients with the highest quality personalized care in the uniquely specialized and evolving field of urology. Dr. Mertz’s philosophy is that quality health care is a hallmark of a quality community, but that the cornerstone upon which it is built begins with quality care – and the results – delivered to each individual patient.
As a member of the Grosse Pointe Urology, now a division of Comprehensive Medical Center PLLC, Dr. Mertz has been a champion of emerging technology. Endourology, ultrasound, lithotripsy, laser surgery and laparoscopy with robotics have all been incorporated into his sophisticated community based practice.
