Dr. David Mehl is an excellent doctor

I had to have two surgeries on my knee and Dr. Mehl was great he was able to calm me down
I am scared of surgery. He talked me through the procedure, he explained it very well. His bedside manners are excellent he’s the kind of doctor that actually cares about his patients. My father and mother have had him with their surgeries as wel my dads had 10 surgeries with Dr. Mehl. We love him and would definitely tell our friends and family members to go to him.
