Marty M. Mertens, MD

  • Dr. Marty Mertens is a rheumatologist, from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, who works one day a week at the Stillwater Specialty Center.  He also works out of the HealthPartners Specialty clinic in St. Paul.  He is interested in diagnosing and managing all types of rheumatologic conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, and other autoimmune diseases.  He is an active member of the American College of Rheumatology.  He has a particular interest in the development of ultrasound technology for the rheumatology clinic. A fun fact about Dr. Merten's is that even though he lives in Minnesota, he still keeps in Wisconsin roots and is a big Packers fan. In his spare time he enjoys running with his black lab, and also enjoys tennis, golf and rock-climbing.

    Rheumatology is a broad field and as a rheumatologist, my goal is to accurately diagnose and provide the best care possible for patients who may develop a rheumatologic condition. This comes from not only being up-to-date with the latest science and evidence-based medicine in this field, but also by developing a strong, trusting relationship with my patients to manage rheumatologic conditions the best way possible for their personal lifestyle. I am involved in medical education of residents and fellows and have an interest in developing the use of ultrasound technology for the rheumatology clinic.
