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)

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.

He is a horrible Dr. Never looked at my condition nor suggested what might be wrong, but just gave e scripts.
