Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Herrera "The care mandate remains inviolate- as a formally trained Primary Care Specialist my patients directly benefit from advanced training in Geratrics and Gerontolgy, Sleep Wake Disorders, Adult and Geriatric Psychiatry. To accomplish this I have simply negotiated a reimbursement structure that reduces risk and augments direct care."

Doctor is respectful and professional but straight-to-the-point-you-only-have-5-minutes-with-him kind of doctor. He does check all vitals and seems very professional but if you are looking for a doctor that will listen to your feelings, this is not him.
