in Silver Springs, NV |
Dr Hershewe was recommended by my neurosurgeon to assist in evaluating a tumor on my pituitary. The typical wait time is under 15 minutes and my typical office visit is 3 hours as he is very thorough with MANY eye exams. The staff is pleasant and Dr Hershewe has been wonderful communicating with my neurosurgeon and helped me to regain my eyesight. He continues to do follow up visits with me after my brain surgery to make sure the tumor does not come back. I am truly grateful-thanks!
