I am a failed back fusion patient and have had many other ortho surgeries. Dr. Herndon show great compassion, but professionalism as well. You will be a team, you agree to follow her protocols and you will find her trying everything to find a solution to your pain. She has a small office with hands on care to all her patients. I have referred many people to her, and all are still seeing her.
in Cleveland, GA |
I am most pleased with the treatment and care given by Dr. Herndon. I have severe scoliosis which has caused tremendous pain. Each time I have been to Dr. Herndon I have had relief. The last time I was in for treatment it has lasted me a very long time.
