just now I called to make an appointment to A pain management doctor. I spoke A lady name Cindy. That lady was rude and very disrespectful. She started asking me question about how much hydrocodone, am taking in a day. When I asked her why is that important and would like to know more about my issue. She TOLD ME NO. Nobody see the doctor unless I say you are a good candidate. I never in many years and to encounter someone that is rude as hell. I am reporting this the medically board, because if they are the only one on my insurance that in network. I need to know what going on in this office. I truly believe that one review that was posted 7 months ago. Don’t be fool y’all. She is going to reply and stated she doesn’t know me or I am not a patient there. But this took place July 22,2020 at 2:45pm. If she is running y’all office it will not be soon you all will be out of business. Rude rude rude on the first

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.

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.
