I went to see this doctor twice with my daughter, this office was very unprofessional. First visit they gave her the wrong day, wrong building and wrong office number, we were told the doctor does not see patients on Wednesday, why did they give her that day? The second visit the doctor would not even talk to my daughter. She was told by a smirking assistant that she was too big. Very insulting. Supposedly the assistant went to speak to the Doctor after weighing my daughter and came back and said the doctor will not even speak with you. We both missed to days of work for what? Insults?

Dr. Herbig was great!! She always answered my questions and explained in detail what was going to be involved in the reconstruction process. Dr. Herbig's PA Kathryn was very knowledgeable and always a big help. Everyone in the office was always very friendly and professional.

During two very long surgical procedures, something went wrong, and it was never reviewed. Post op infection, discharged too soon. My primary care provider sent me back to UT ER due to the infection. Permanent nerve damage and disability after breast reconstruction. Dr. Herbig showed very little concern, and left a skin flap that should have been removed.
