Very professional, knowledgeable, and shows care and concern for patient needs.

Dr. Herman and his staff of medical professionals are caring and highly skilled. Throughout my medical procedure to reduce my turbinates, I was confident that I was in capable hands! I am very satisfied with the results and the excellent standard of care that I received. Dr. Herman and his staff are AWESOME!
in Jonesboro, GA |
Dr Herman is an excellent healthcare provider. I went to a couple of Doctors to find out what was going on with me and none of them really helped me until I found Dr. Herman. I have been seeing him for the last few years and my allergies, ear infections and sleeping issues have improved dramatically.

EXCELLENT CARE DR HERMAN IS AWESOME
in Flowery Branch, GA |
Besides receiving a great result, I really like Dr. Herman. Just a super nice guy. He also took his time with me and did not rush any aspect of my experience.
in Atlanta, GA |
Perfunctory, bored, soulless consult with truly abysmal follow-up from disorganized office staff. 2-3 years later, he refused to write a prescription for a REPLACEMENT HOSE for my CPAP unless I came in for a completely pointless, usurious office visit.
I care deeply about my patients and always endeavor to provide the highest quality care. Medical standards for management of a patient with sleep apnea require a visit at least once a year to assure the therapy is both effective and appropriate. It would be irresponsible to manage therapy for a patient I have not seen in three years. Please understand that I cannot violate treatment standards. I would be happy to see you either in person or via a telemedicine call to reestablish care.
