Patient Comments (2)
Los Altos, CA |
Wonderful man and wonderful doctor! I came to Dr. Herron with horrible, life-altering acne, and he had me cleared up within 6 months. He took the time to explain the different treatment options and gave me the opportunity to weigh out what was best for me. He was always very prompt, which is a rarity in medicine these days. My mother is an Nurse Practicioner and patient of his, and regularly refers him to patients of hers.
Super patronizing / uncomfortable
