Dr. Hermans is by far one of the greatest surgeons that I have ever known. His work is excellent as well as his bedside manner. Also his entire staff is amazing and always very professional. You couldn't ask for a better healthcare provider.

Never do I ever want him around me or my family again. He's mean, rude and incompetent. How do doctors like him keep a job? Do yourself a favor and stay away from him.

Very disappointed with his bedside manner. He was rude to nurses and spent minimal time with me as a patient. I would follow up with him but he didn't seem to care. Would not recommend him.
