Dr. Hershey was recommended to me by a friend. I need both knees replaced. I have severe osteoarthritis, plus my right leg has been very crooked since birth. (My rheumatologist said he didn't know how I was able to walk.) Dr. Hershey did my right knee June 5 and for the first time in my life I have two straight legs! He did a wonderful job and my knee felt steady from the start. Recovery and rehab were not bad at all. Dr. Hershey will do my other knee some time soon.He is GREAT!

I had full hip replacement on my right side. Anterior approach minimally invasive surgery. Walked down the hall very first day. Dr Hershey was great, explained everything. Went home after two days. Walked around house 1/4 mile each day for a week. Next week walked outside everyday for 1/2 mile. No more pain.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hershey's since 2014. I had knee replacement Aug. 2016. The thing I appreciate about him is his honesty in what you need to do as a patient to get the best results for yourself. Great pre-surgery classes were provided, however what amazed me were the people who had no intention of doing what they needed to do. So easy to blame the doctor for your own laziness. I had terrific results a long with an unexpected surgery on my left knee. Dr. Hershey is the BEST!!!

I just finished recuperating from my second hip replacement by Dr. Hershey in the last two years. I would highly recommend him. Both times I had the minimally invasive anterior approach. I was home in two days, no pain medication needed but extra strength tylenol. At four weeks absolutely no pain, very little stiffness.

Not sure If I would recommend Dr. Hershey to anyone . He was unable to clearly provide a diagnosis of my knee condition despite, having an MRI report handy. I am left with an unclear diagnosis and will have to go for a second opinion.

Dr. Hershey replaced my knee. He was kind, attentive, thourough and efficient. His surgical skill is obvious in that I was walking the following day...using the restroom, able to shower and could walk the halls on the day after surgery. He checked on me personally every day, including Saturday. I confidently and highly recommend Dr. Hershey!

Dr. Hershey repaired my bilateral wrist fractures after a traumatic motorcycle incident. I felt completely at ease and safe going into surgery, and after. At a time when I was scared of what my outcome would be he was there to remind me how well I was doing given the severity of my injuries. I could tell he was very invested in my progress and my recovery as a whole. He is reassuring, calm, attentive, and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking an orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Hershey did a knee replacement for me and I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Hershey also replaced both of my sister's hips and again could not be happier. He is kind and considerate and really makes you feel that he cares about your progress as a person. I would recommend Dr. Hershey to anyone that is having problems with any kind of orthopedic pain. Sincerely Sharon Stirling and Susan Blackwell.

Dr. Hershey was my surgeon for my distal radius fracture repair. He was very calm, confident, and reassuring. He was blatantly honest and willing to answer my multitude of questions. The day of surgery, I was terrified and he made me feel at ease. Recovery was very hard for me-not only was the pain excruciating, but it was a scary struggle...Dr. Hershey was ever-present, helping me to get the perfect physical therapist, and overseeing my ongoing struggle with range of motion and strength.
in Salinas, CA |
Dr. Hershey is a excellent surgeon, he takes his time to talk to you about what he is going to do in your surgery, what you can expect in your recovery, anything that could go wrong, what complications you could except or if any. Very easy to talk too. I would definitely use him again if I ever needed another surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hershey to my friends and family.

I was referred to this doctor for a 2nd opinion on my condition. So i drove 2 hours hoping for some helpful news or a solution of some sort, but instead he just tells me to work through the pain.
in Gustine, CA |
Dr. Hersey tells me to lose weight, and that will help my pain on both my Knees. Also that I have to live with my pain. And this idiot tells me that he does not want to give me pain medicine because he does not want me to get addicted. What kind of Doctor are you Mr. Hersey? I have beginning stages of Osteoarthritis due to traumatic injury.This doctor looked very clueless and did not bother trying to help me with my pain. Well maybe it's because I have Medical. I will be getting a second opinion
