Dr. Herms and the OHC Staff have handled my Lung Cancer diagnoses (2) incredibly well. I've always been treated like a "person," and not just a "patient" on all of my Office Visits. When coming in to the OHC Office for follow-ups, Dr. Herms has always explained my results clear and concise, yet also in a way that is easily understood in "laymen's" terms. Highly recommended ... = )

Getting details about your illness and treatment is like pulling teeth. He is not an informative doctor at all! He projects an icy, rude demeanor. He seems to not realize how a poor bedside manner affects a patient’s emotional disposition and heightens their anxiety. The only time I seen a smile on this man's face was in his profile picture online and even that appears to be a strained effort.

Referred to him for blood condition diagnosis. Saw Dr. one time & asst. twice. Put on Xarelto, no information given on life threatening condition or how to live with it, & then was told my PCP could manage from now on. Guess they wouldn’t make as much $$$ on me as a cancer patient. Dr. needs a course on bedside manner & listening, not personable at all. I was very disappointed.
