...one human hair can support 3.5 ounces?

W. Robin Mers, M.D.

Dr. Mers


"As a pediatrician, getting to know children and their families is especially exciting. Helping kids stay healthy and happy is a great reward. Just as adults are beginning to take more personal responsibility in their health care, I try to empower children in this role-as it becomes age appropriate. I also enjoy 'playing' with my patients because I want them to feel safe and secure when they need healthcare."

"There is no exact way to raise and nurture children, but I believe a primary role is to gently guide and offer support to families. I am available as my young patients' advocate in their adventures of growing up. To be a participant in this process for so many is both meaningful and rewarding."
