Dr. Hershkowitz is wonderful! Very friendly and wants to get involved. Very clear on everything and makes sure you understand everything before leaving the room. Office staff is wonderful and very easy to get ahold of! There is not a single thing to complain about.

Dr. Hershkowitz was not only focused on treating my condition, but truly cared about my quality of life when considering what medication to prescribed for me. She was very thoughtful in her approach and I also felt like I was her number one priority while she was with me. I never felt rushed and always answered my questions honestly and clearly. I was a patient of Dr. H's when she was on the staff at Hamot Medical Center, in Erie, PA.
