He is a jerk. He decided what I wanted before asking. I explained to him if I pass away I believe in the Lord God and he dismissed me.

Arrogant does not come close to explain this man. He is a doctor but thinks he is a God. Other hospital personnel said he has no bedside manners. He did not even come in to explain operation results and threatened me if I did not follow his precise orders. He personally attacked my wife's views. The hospital or his staff did not give her updates through the procedure. He may be good, at least he thinks he is, but there is more to being a doctor. I definitely recommend finding someone else!

Dr Herwig successfully ablated two extra circuits in my heart in April ‘18 . My first episode of AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia occurred at age 13 and I endured years of lengthy episodes of tachycardia. At age 68 my heart is now in normal sinus rhythm with no occurrences of rapid heart rate. ( ten months to date ) I can’t thank Dr Herwig enough, he changed my life and I recommend him highly to anyone who suffers with Heart arrhythmia.

Dr. Herweg is arrogant. I want a confident doctor to go into my heart and zap it back into rhythm -- but not an arrogant jerk with a God complex. He does not spend time with patients, is impatient and dismissive. Well, Dude, you are going into my heart! Don't you think you owe me some information? For what you are paid, you should treat patients with respect and make sure they understand what is going on? You act like I am ignorant, but I have an advanced degree, too. Go elsewhere.

Dr. Herweg consistently serves as a model of what to expect from an exceptional clinician. He is focused and attentive; remembers nuances about medical history; takes the time to explain options and ensure that the patient really understands. And his surgical work has exceeded my expectations.

Not impressed at all. Not helpful, didn't respond to my questions or concerns. Will definitely be looking for another doctor. Made it seem like I was going to die tomorrow if I didn't have surgery, then in the same breath said it would be 2-3 months before he could do anything... WTH??

Dr Herweg is the definition of excellence. He's so knowledeablge and meticulous when it comes to the care of his patients. If you're ever lucky enough to have him as your doctor, he's not the typical "sit down and sugar coat things" guy. He is very short and to the point. It isn't for lack or caring or bedside manner, it is because he's the "I KNOW what is wrong and am fixing it for you ." guy. My partner was seen by every doctor in our area with no answers. Dr. Herweg knew them right away. A++

It took a couple of visits before I realized that he is very knowledgeable, caring and concerned. I wasn't sure if I wanted to allow him to treat me due to long waits in waiting room. He gave me his personal cellphone number and asked that I call him with any question or concerns. I did and decided to allow him to do a 4 chamber ablation and then a pacemaker. He has been flawless with all accounts of my heart and I will continue to see him every 4-6 months. I highly recommend!
