Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Herbstein "After practicing Neurology for more years than I can count, I still find going to my office and interacting with my patients an exhilarating and fascinating experience.  There is nothing like seeing patients again that are now friends that I have followed for 10 or 20 years and new ones that become challenging and complicated diagnostic dilemmas.  The practice of Neurology is a mixture of science, art, intuition and personal experience and that is the source of great personal satisfaction."

Patient Comments (3)
Honolulu, HI |
I was having leg and foot pain. He took time to figure out what was wrong and then worked to adjust my medication so I could be as comfortable as possible and still be able to drive and work. He was able to diagnose me a year before the EEG was able to confirm.
in New York |
I arrived 30mins early,was made to wait 1hr 15mins before being seen. There was only 1patient ahead of me. I was referred Herbstein but he did nothing but refer me to yet another doctor & ordered 2 scans totaling nearly $1000. When I finally got in his office he took a phone call that lasted 10mins. He examined me for 5mins and then left for lunch. I waited nearly 30mins before leaving in frustration. I now look at a $500 bill for having waited TWO HOURS with no resolution to my nerve issue.
in New York, NY |
He is a horrible Dr. Never looked at my condition nor suggested what might be wrong, but just gave e scripts. After going twice wit 2 meds. which didn't work, found another neurologist, whom I like a lot and she is sending me to an oncologist as I may have cancer. He never even thought about that possibility. Too lazy I guess.
