This man completely screwed up and botched a left ankle and leg surgery on me. Caused permanent nerve damage inserting screws directly into my perineal and superficial nerves. I had ripped myofascial tissue that had to be fixed and finally had to have a new dr remove the plates and screws. I was forced to drop a malpractice suit against him and to this day it infuriates me he never once checked to see how the situation was. Avoid at all costs, he is absolute trash.

Dr. Herscovici is the WORST. He is dismissive, rude, grumpy, and condescending. He refused to acknowledge my pain and ordered extraneous xrays (that I'll be charged for extensively I'm sure). I would not recommend this place.

Dr. Herscovici was very good and quickly diagnosed and corrected the foot pain I had been experiencing for over 6 months. During my visit it was especially busy and I had to wait over two hours to be seen for my appointment. This was the only problem I had with them and it could have been a one time issue but it is the only reason I did not score them higher. Once I was back with the Dr. and his team things went smoothly.
