Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Herman & Jessica took their time to explain everything and answered all of my questions (I had a page full). Cindy was my advocate, she made IT happen with the help of everyone there. Before you know it I was walking out of the office and went straight over to VCMH... blood, x-rays, CT scan &...more

I found him very patient and ready to answer ALL my questions. He has 20 plus years doing fusion. Best DR I could find.

comes in 45 minutes after appointment time and just tries to rush me out the door. Completely dismissive of me as a patient and not interested in anything I have to say. Absolutely brutal.
