Great doctor and office. Thanks for helping my hip feel better. The cortisone shot didn't even hurt.

This is a GREAT doctor. He diagnosed my "trigger finger." By the time I'd left his office, I was on the way to being pain free. Great personally-easy to talk to, very knowledgable and professional. Great staff and zero wait time. Yay!

Dr. Herman was great. He listened. Diagnosed my problem. Gave me a cortisone shot in my hip and I feel great. Highly recommended.

He made fun of my illness to the nurse that was assisting him. I was extremely unsettled knowing that he has that much disregard in his patients feelings. Especially when I'm putting my faith in a healthcare professional to take care of me AND PAYING HIM!

This must be a mistake. I have the utmost respect for my patients. My goal is to listen and assist each person that asks for my help.
