Dr. Hertenstein is one of the most incompetent dr have ever encountered. I have taken my kids to this ofc for yrs only to see Dr. Lively. Unfortunately the handful of times he was not available we had to see Dr. Hertenstein. In my opinion this guy is just a plain idiot and is way too proud of himself. Him being a dr is just plain frighting. Not being a first time mom (oldest 26) with several kids, his lack of knowledge and complacency is dangerous. smh

I ended up at dr hertensteins office after taking my newborn to several places around town. All those places kept telling me my son would get over his horrible cough. Come to find out my son had rsv which dr hertenstein addressed immediately All of the staff and drs at this office actuallly care. The service is exceptional. My kids (3 now) actually love going to the dr. Best dr office period.

Don't be thrown off by the name! I Had him up until I was an adult, I would have continued seeing him if I didn't feel so awkward in the waiting room with little kids. Haha he's great, he's the same great doctor he's always been from what I remember, he has a charisma about him, very smart. When I heard his voice from the other rooms I never felt scared when my turn was next, in fact I was excited because every doctor's visit was like a new adventure.:)
