Provider Reviews

Dr. Herr listened to my symptoms, studied the referral notes and asked appropriate questions, did a thorough exam and ordered appropriate follow-up lab work and diagnostic imaging. I felt listened to and have profound respect for his professional abilities. I'm in good hands.

Review for Dr. Herr

Dr. Bales listened to me and took the time to discuss my options fully. He was pleasant and compassionate and he put me at ease regarding my medical condition. I highly recommended this doctor and the staff at OrthoIndy West!

Found Dr. Bales to be very personable and helpful. He answered all my questions fully. Would recommend him to anyone with knee problems. Also really like the fact he is a Notre Dame alumni.....
