    I wish Dr. Herd could be my everything dr! He was friendly and explained everything in a way I could understand. He joked around with my husband but also took his job very seriously. When something bothered him he checked it immediately and he spent several hours making phone calls to find me a surgeon when I had a problem he was not specialized in. I unfortunately no longer live near Fort Worth, but I am still tempted to make the drive. When I had my daughter he went above and beyond! The best!
