Dr H is very knowledgeable and skillful at what he does. Very educated and stays on top of everything. easy to talk with about health concerns and he resolves health issues beyond words that can describe. If I did not have to move to and have to find another doctor. Dr H will be very hard to replace. The UCSD system (phone) is sometimes difficult to navigate but once you see this doctor it is worth the aggravation

Dr Hergesheimer is such a remarkable and caring Doctor that I would hesitate to leave this area and be without his services. He has guided me through several unusual auto-immune diseases and always is mindful of my mental attitude . The office is staffed by competent people who reflect his attitude of caring ,quality service.

After i got very confusing results to lab work I had done, I was told to call the Dr for an explanation, I called in the morning and left a message, that evening I received a call from his assistant on blocked # that I did not answer. She left a message that did not answer my questions. I immediately called back I got the voicemail. Since my visit to Dr. Heresheimer I am very stressed as I cannot get answers to some very confusing lab work I had done. This Dr is making me sic

Dr H is the best Dr I have had. I am not a youngster anymore so this does matter- Thanks for the sound and honest advice and feedback!
in Vista, CA |
Great doctor very personable. However his office staff are careless. Indifferent, I had a seizure petit mal in the waiting room my husband told the blonde receptionist she offered no help. They botched our insurance. The doc I recommend the staff needs training.
