Dr. Hertel is competent and thorough. He is a compassionate doctor and will explain your condition and options for your treatment. If you have a caregiver and/or family member he will include the person in the discussion. I highly recommend him.

If you’re a Smoker, this Dr doesn’t show any interest or desire to help you at all. He turns a deaf ear to Smokers. If you ask him a question regarding your Kidney’s, or anything regarding what he’s supposed to Specialize in, his answer is, “Quitting Smoking will solve ALL your problems”. This Dr told me I had NO BLOOD in my Urinalysis. When I was checking out, I was given my Urinalysis Report from the Nurse, which, it had a LARGE amount of Blood in my Urinalysis. That makes him a Liar, too

About Me

Care Philosophy
