My son has been a patient of Dr H's since 2013. When all other MD's in our area said nothing could be done about my son's arm, we did our our own research and thankfully found Dr H. His patience and demeanor are like no other MD I have ever met. I am a quick fix type of person, and thankfully Dr H is not. He made sure the 2 surgeries my son needed were done correctly and at the right time and now my son no longer has a 9 year old size arm on his 6ft tall frame:) He is truly the best of the best!

Dr. John Herzenberg performed my scoliosis surgery back in the summer of 1990, I was going on 14 years old, but my mother insisted on a de other than the one the the insurance company set up for me(bless her heart) but was blessed with the best doctor straight out of Tx. I was out of the hospital and walking within a week and had two rods fused to my spine. Ppl could believe it, but it was only God who guided his hands. To this day Dr's are that see my scar are still in awe of how well he did

Dr. Herzenberg is fantastic! He's a great surgeon and a very personable man. His staff is just as kind and professional. Everyone cares about the patient AND the family. We were recommended to him by a friend who's father was an MD and knew of his fine reputation. We've had several years of great care. Although we may be released soon as the healing is done and worked perfectly, we will never forget Dr. H and his group. We have recommended him twice this year alone.
Absolutely the BEST at what he does. We entrust our daughter to him and travel 1,200 miles just to see him. The entire team, staff and hospital has far exceeded our expectations.
