in Margate, Fl |
Dr Hersch and his staff consistently combine excellent quality care with an informal air that helps patients feel at ease and makes you feel confident that they really care about your health. Roxy, "T", and Heather are great people to be around and make you feel welcome as soon as you enter the door. More medical offices need to take a page from their "playbook" on patient care and customer service. Dr Hersch takes as much time as necessary and thoroughly explains all options of your care.

Dr. Hersch & office staff, especially Roxy are excellent at what they do. I would highly recommend Dr. Hersch to my family and friends!

I have had many surgical experiences and Dr Hersch is rated a top professional in my book. Between his incredible office staff and his care and master of craft, I would very much recommend them.
in Delray Beach, FL |
This is a well organized office. Waiting was minimal. Dr. Hersch also spent time with me to explain all the options I have. I was not rushed out of the office.
in Delray Beach, FL |
Dr. Hersch is a masterful surgeon - meticulous, and explains everything perfectly. Repair of a torn meniscus went beautifully. Dr. Hersch is in a class all his own. He was personally recommended to us by a top known and respected surgeon in Boca Raton. The brand new Delray Surgical Suites is phenomenal. The quality of the team there is excellent. The anesthesiologist, Dr. Fischler, was outstanding. We could not have asked for a better outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Hersch.

Should have gone to an expert from the beginning . Thank God , better late than never. Lots of hope and clear explanation. Thanks dr.JONATHEN
in Boca Raton, FL |
I found Dr. Hersch to be very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I broke my ankle in an accident. I went to him and he told me I was in the wrong boot and and that I needed one that supported my ankle better. He also made a few recommendations that accelerated the bone healing and within 6 weeks the bone was healed and I was fitted for a brace. I still have some tenderness but I know that every day I am making progress. My experience with Dr. Hersch and his staff was good.

I was seen as the patient in April 2016 for an accident injury. My attorney paid the bill that was submitted by this doctor. In January I started being double billed by Dr. Hersch through Tenet billing service.I immediately contacted the office and spoke with an office manager who told me that this matter would be resolved. It is now May I have contacted the office as well as Tenet and I am still receiving bills. My attorney Scott Young has also tried to get Dr. Hersh to stop these bills.
We are sorry about your frustrations with this issue. We have resolved the issue for you and sincerely apologize on any stress this may have caused you. Wishing you continued recovery

I was referred to Dr. Hersch, several yrs ago but couldn't see him at that time cause he wasn't on my insurance plan, but as soon as I changed my plan and found out that he now takes the insurance I have now! He takes the time to listen to you when you describe the symptoms that you are experiencing! I am very please with the level of care that I recieve from both Dr. Hersch and his staff!
in Miami, Fl |
Dr. Hersch is such a great surgeon! So thankful to have been referred to him!
in Sunrise, Fl. |
I had a reversible shoulder replacement operation - wonderful experience and NO PAIN - UNBELIEVABLE - would highly recommend Dr. Hersch. What more can I say.
in Boca Raton Fl |
He's a surgeon that is not quick to cut. He and his staff are terrific. I've already referred 2 people to him and they both loved him
Boca Raton, FL |
Staff and Dr. Hersch were outstanding-never kept waiting, very knowledgeable and competent. Fixled my son's broken arm and also fixed my tennis elbow. Plus, he was a really nice guy. Highly recommend.
in Deerfield Beach, FL. |
Unfortunately, my pain level (after 4 months) is greater than it was prior to the surgery. On my follow up visit in January, Dr Hersch changed my pain med from Hydrocodone to something that really did nothing but make me dizzy and nautious. I agreed with stopping the narcotic drug and would rather deal with the pain than to have to keep taking pills. I don't want more meds and just want to be pain free without drugs! His surgery has caused more pain than before. 4 months of recovery and feel wo
This man,saved my life....three other doctors told me,sorry pal,we can't do anything for you,Dr Hersch said,no problem,fix you right up!..i was nearly killed three years ago,clobbered with a 60 foot tall Australian pine tree..broken ribs,punctured lung,left shoulder,crushed....today,at 57 years old,still workin construction,cutting trees,Dr hersch,gave me back my life,true hero,I will never forget this great man!
