Caring, compassionate, friendly and took his time with me. Gave me the diagnosis and solution to my foot pain. Since June, I saw 2 providers at my PCP’s office, had X-rays and CT but no definitive diagnosis until Dr Herring!

Dr. Herring has been my doctor for years. I never want to go to anyone else even if I have to wait a little longer to see him. He is so kind and truly listens to your concerns. He spends time with you and you are not just a number in his busy day. He is professional and explains things so that I can understand what is wrong or that I need to do. TOA is so lucky to have him on their staff.

Dr. Herring is an amazing doctor. I found him very attentive to my questions or concerns. I never felt rushed or unimportant. He did surgery on my foot, which was in horrible shape, in 2005. I wanted him to check and see if anything had changed. For the most part, the repairs he did 14 years earlier were still right where he put them! I drove 3 hours to his office and he will be the only doctor I will see about my feet. Judy, Indiana

Even though I have to see Dr Stuart Smith, Dr Herring took all the time with me and was focused on my getting rid of this Bakers Cyst/Meniscus pain. He is personable, professional, and explained what was going on. Thank you so much!! I will highly recommend him!
