What People Say About Dr. Douglas Hershey, MD
Reply
Appt confirmation call provided important info. Specifically told NO CHILDREN ALLOWED. Confused, I went on to confirm if this was policy throughout the entire pregnancy. I was told YES. Dr. Hershey does not allow children in the office. I could understand certain procedures but the entire pregnancy. He delivers babies and yet no kids allowed!?! My baby girl is 4 and I am a single mother with no family nearer than 100 miles. What are mother's like me supposed to do!?! Unacceptable!!! CancelNODOC!
