I was hospitalized following complications to removing my gallbladder, I had to a bile duct tear. Dr Herrington was consulted by my surgeon to do an ERCP to place a stent. He was so pleasant and super knowledgeable. He took his time explaining what was going on and why a previous ERCP procedure wasn't successful. He answered each and every question we had!

Dr Christopher Herrington has been my physician for about six months. I'm writing to say that I think the world of him. He is very professional, friendly, courteous & attentive. I also like the way Dr Herrington is the one who phones me personally with test results and not his staff. That means the world to me.

I am a current patient of Dr. Herrington. Very pleasant doctor to talk to. Has a way of putting patient at ease and shows concern for patient. He does not rush through a visit. Always takes time to make sure all questions are answered completely. Based on my experience with other gastro doctors I highly recommend Dr. Herrington.
