Patient Comments (4)

I did not have good experience with billing and also i was not notified what exactly the procedure involves. Was asked to pay much more than what my insurance claimed was out of pocket cost. I do not recommend this office.

Dr. Herron is extremely kind, personable, talented, and trustworthy. I have had nothing but positive experiences with him so far!! I had dermafillers injected and fractional co2 laser resurfacing done and am more than pleased with the results and have more appointments scheduled with him.

Dr. Herron performed Mohs surgery on my ear. He took his time answering all my questions before he started. He was kind and calming throughout the process. I have complete confidence in Dr.Herron.
