Dr. Heringer is quite skills as a plastic surgeon. He performed a "Brow Lift" for me because my eyesight was being impaired. Even though it involved a 10 inch incision, I healed well, with no infections, or untoward problems. I can now see beautifully, and look a lot better, with no visible scars!. His staff is fantastic too, very supportive and available to answer questions, pre and post operatively.

During spring/summer of 2016 I had a ptosis repair done to my left eyelid with Dr. Heringer. He did a wonderful job; I was so excited to see my left eyelid stay up like my right eyelid!! He took time to answer all my questions which were many!! It took 2 procedures to correct my eyelid but I'm so thrilled with the results. Staff was great as well. He was so knowledgeable, calm, attentive & great sense of humor. Any further ocular issues I would go to him. He was a wonderful "find" for me!
