Patient Comments (4)

Dr. Hertz saw me herself (no PA). Explained things clearly, showed me my x-rays. Spoke to me before surgery. The physical therapist sees me in Add to dictionary' office and, also, explains clearly. My post surgery healing seems to be progressing well.

Prolonged my pain and suffering by ignoring the facts that my arm was unstable and did not perform the surgery I needed to fix my arm after dr Kevin j Pelton negligently performed the first surgery at the same hospital( white memorial).
