We fondly call Dr. H our miracle worker. Know of several of his patients giving him accolades for changing their very lives, including my hubby. As for me, he is helping me to get better and I appreciate him. FYI--He may not come across as warm, but he is--He is super focused and wants to do the best for his patients. He cares a great deal. My favorite Doc ever.

I owe so much to Dr. Hershkowitz, for he literally put my life back together because of an accident that caused me to incur an internal decapitation this past May. I was -so blessed- to have been referred to him for this very serious problem. Dr. Hershkowitz was very direct (which my wife and I totally appreciated) about what was going on. Dr. H. had a plan.... and we knew that we had the right surgeon. I will be -forever- indebted to this man! Forever! .... and, to his wonderful staff !!

For this appointment he doesn't show much concern on anything. He went very quick. It seemed like he was in some kind of rush. Yes, he has lot patients, but he needs to spend more time with each patient. Also, show more concern to the patient, & the family.

Was very knowledgeable about multiple shunts since I needed to have 3 all together put in over a 5 year time span. Kept me up on my progress and any new advances there were in the field concerning shunts.
