Took my brother to see Dr Herndon because he just moved here and as a diabetic needed a primary care doctor. Dr Herndon was very thorough and attentive. Seemed very concerned about my brother and getting him all the care he needs. His staff was amazing , Chantelle his PA was awesome as well. So thankful I found this office and was able to get my brother in quickly. A+

He has been a great doctor. He listens and really seems to care. He is great at explaining things. When I had problems other doctors couldn’t figure out he did all he could to get to the bottom of things without making me feel like it was just a bunch of necessary tests. I got lucky when I found him.

I went in to get my meds refilled cause of my insurance changed and I had gone to him before. What a mistake.. I guess he only refills meds at one per visit.. Other words if your on more then one med you must go back several times to get them refilled. I have been on these meds for year for blood pressure and etc,,, I don't understand why its so hard to get him to refill them, I will be sure to let others know this as I work in Health care myself.

He seems to enjoy educating his patients on any topic that affects his patient's health and interest. He also provides an opinion on any issue. I have had a number of health issues, and he is very good at anticipating problems and dealing with problems quickly. I have CAD, bladder cancer and prostate cancer. Of course, I have specialists in each area, but Dr. Herndon helps me make sense of it all.
