I was extremely disappointed in my visit with Dr. Hersch. He pretty much made fun of me for saying I have had extreme lower back pain for 5 days straight. Telling me that is not a very long time. I tried explaining that my back seems to be going out more often now and although only lasts a couple of days each time, I need some sort of way to deal with this. He did not do any xrays, send me for an mri, check my back in any way. He made me feel like he was making fun of me. Would definitely NOT recommend him as his bedside manner is non-existent. His asst was also completely unfriendly. So uncomfortable.

~ Just wanted to send your office a note of thanks for all that you have done to heal me and my poor 'ole knee along my journey over the past year! Your staff, all inclusive, has been hands down one of the best practices that I have ever dealt with for my health care. Your faith, compassion, caring, empathy, and understanding made it an enjoyable process. A very special thank you to Dr. Jonathan Hersch. Job well done! I will not forget the time and attention that you gave me (and my knee). Your expertise as a surgeon is evident, but as a care-giver you are A+ in my book.

Found this doc on Google, 3 weeks after moving to South Florida. Ruptured my achilles and was not only available same day for a consult, but also moved up surgery to accomodate my trips to move my family here. Amazing staff and clinically, did amazing work. I am healing well and already jogging again, 5 months later. Would absolutely recommend Dr. Hersch and his team.

Dr. Hersch embodies everything a patient wants in a doctor. He is attentive and listens to his patient's needs. My adult daughter is visually impaired and Dr. Hersch treated her with the utmost respect in every way. His staff was always at the ready to help us and they are organized and efficient. High recommendation!

Dr. Hersch knew what to do quickly, went in, fixed my shoulder after 5 years of excruciating pain...without going under the knife. Heading back for my next shoulder....lol. Hope it's as easy as the first one.

Already recommended Dr. Hersch to 3 people who have shoulder issues. You couldn't get a better surgeon. He's professional, caring and my complete shoulder replacement is perfect. I have full range of motion, no pain and can do all my day-to-day activities perfectly.

Was not happy with Dr. Hersch. When he finally walked into the exam room he had a bad demeanor as if I was a bother... I was very unhappy and would NOT refer him.

My orthopedic journey has been emotionally challenging. Add health insurance to create the perfect storm. However, Dr. Hersh and his team have gone above and beyond to help secure authorizations and schedule imaging appointments. Their involvement and professionalism along the way has helped me maintain my sanity and positively progress to find a solution for my injury. Special shout-out to Josh! Couldn't have done it without you.

I appreciate his kind staff- there was no rush to push me through with 20 people waiting. He is in practice by himself- no NP's or PA's- so he sees his patients personally. He explained his diagnosis to me and multiple treatment options without being pushy. Very professional and did not rush me when I asked questions.

I have to say I normally look at recommendations with a grain of salt, you never know who is actually sending the review but in this case I can assure you my review is truthful and honest and again my own experience. I have been dealing with constant pain in my left shoulder & arm I did my research and found Dr Hersch. He took time with me and explained my issue and how to correct it. I found him to be approachable, an expert in his field and a good listener! More than the last surgeon. Thanks!
