Patient Comments (4)
I wasn't even allowed to see the Dr. I asked the receptionist Ashley if I needed a referral and she said no when I showed up the story was different. She was extremely rude to me and slammed the window in my face and her and two other employees started to mimick me while I was still in the office because I was upset that I wasn't able to see Dr. Herd. I used to see Dr. Hardie and never had a problem with the office but I will not be returning and I filed a complaint.

Dr. Herd is amazing. My sister used him, my cousin uses him and now my step-mom as well as step-sisters use him. Super professional with incredible bedside manner. His nurses are all nice and accommodating and I love that he is super straight forward. Doctor's have a tendency to beat around the bush and 'recommend'. I love how he tells me 'no' or 'it doesn't matter' or a definitive 'yes'.

Wait time is over an hour. Unacceptable.

I wish Dr. Herd could be my everything dr! He was friendly and explained everything in a way I could understand. He joked around with my husband but also took his job very seriously. When something bothered him he checked it immediately and he spent several hours making phone calls to find me a surgeon when I had a problem he was not specialized in. I unfortunately no longer live near Fort Worth, but I am still tempted to make the drive. When I had my daughter he went above and beyond! The best!
