At 66 years old, I sustained a complete vertebral fracture resulting from a fall. Dr. Herzog performed the surgical repair that involved a bone graft, plates and screws. He and his staff were extremely competent, professional and personable. I am not able to express my gratitude for the excellent care, compassion, and level of expertise that I experienced throughout my hospitalization and follow-up care at his office. Three months after my surgery, I was hiking in Ecuador and feel great!

I had almost given up hope of ever being pain free, but Dr. Herzog was able to perform surgery that finally relieved all my pain. I would highly recommend him to others and I have.

I had a Laminectomy and spinal fusion in December and I am so pleased with the results. I am now able to stand for over ten minutes and walk without pain in my legs. I stood for over one hour cutting vegetables for soup a few weeks ago and was not able to do that prior to the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Herzog.

I highly recommend Dr. Herzog. Because of the urgency of my surgery, he scheduled it after office hours and gave up an evening with his family. His competent staff arranged everything in two days. I am doing well after surgery thanks to Dr. Herzog.

Dr. Herzog performed a spinal fusion on my lower back in early May 2017 and for the first time in over 35 years I am pain free. Great surgeon, great staff, great results

Dr Herzog is excellent at what he does, so are his physician assistants. But his front office Girl Val, very very rude... I am surprised that Dr Herzog would allow her to be the way she is. Very unpleasant and seems not to like her job.

Dr. Herzog is an excellent doctor but has little to no bedside manor. He spoke with his PA about me, in front of me, but barely spoke to me directly at all. His PA is very knowledgeable and is obviously there to fill in for Dr. Horzog's shortcomings. I ended up not needing surgery and was able to heal with the help of a pain doctor and PT. Dr Herzog only takes interest in you if you're an interesting medical case. If you want a dr that talks to you and cares about you as a person, not him.

He and his PA were wonderful. I went for a second opinion with him. They figured out where my pain was and what it was even though I was seeing another ortho doctor for months without relief. And he was completely correct!! They were very friendly and really took time and listened to what I had to say.

Extremely poor bed side manor. Very rude and condescending. Spends very little time with you. Most time is spent with various PA's. Was placed on pain medication and three times they screwed up leaving me without and having to go through withdrawal. Spent well over a year and still no plan of action. Referred back to another Doctor who has nothing to do with my spine and is treating nerve damage from a previous surgery. Said to contact them in 9 months to a year to reevaluate. Won't be going....
