I have been seeing Dr HERSEL for quite a while now. And every visit is as nice as it can be. Never any hassle. Especially now when visits are virtual. Dr Hersel and his staff are always very kind and very professional. I can't recommend them highly enough.

In my experience there is no other doctor like Dr. Hersel. Yes, he is truly compassionate and caring, but most of all he has a great doctor. He will stop at nothing to try to relieve your pain. I have been a patient on and off for 10 years and would never see another doctor. He is truly my angel on earth.

I always recommend Dr. Hersel!!! He has helped the pain in my back, legs and especially in my ankles. He does not give up on what's causing the pain. There is another option IF the pain returns. So many other physicians provide one diagnosis and plan. If or when that no longer provides relief the patient is on their own! I am so happy to have Dr. Hersel caring for my family.

After sustaining a chronic neck injury in a car accident I had visited many different pain management specialists, trying to get relief but nothing worked until I found Dr. Hersel. He really listened to my challenges, and soon put together a course of treatment and interventions that worked really well at relieving my pain. I found him to be a compassionate and kind doctor, who listened deeply to ensure he understood every aspect of my condition. Highly recommended.

Dr. Hersel has helped relieve my severe neck and lower back pain when no one else could. Dr. Hersel is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, he is also compassionate and truly cares about helping his patients. The outpatient surgery center has state of the art equipment and his medical team are top notch. I always feel I’m in the best hands. I suffer from a number of issues, including arthritis and from time to time I need to see a Pain Management doctor. It took me years and I went through four (4) Pain Management doctors before I was lucky enough to be referred to Dr. Hersel. I have a good commute, but it’s worth the drive. By the time I was finally referred, I was in a surgeon’s office and could barely walk or turn my head from side to side. Can’t recommend him highly enough. Don’t know where I’d be without Dr. Hersel and his team.

After being terrified about having an epidural procedure, I finally decided to do it. The nurse, office staff and medical staff were unbelievably professional, kind and hospitable. After having experienced lumbar pain for decades and having total numbness in my right toe, I experienced 100% relief lasting the first week. I continue to maintain 70% improvement after the first month and all numbness is gone. I remember thinking, why didn't I do this earlier? I was completely amazed by Dr. Hersel
