Patient Comments (1)
Boston, MA |
Went to Dr. Herndon for a 2nd opinion, after an awful experience at Boston Medical Center. He was wonderful! Thorough, patient, and took all the time needed to explain and try to diagnose my issues. He set me up with an occupational therapist, and had a custom brace made for me. After only a couple of days I am already seeing improvements.
