Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
Dr Herman specializes in the evaluation and management of esophageal disorders (difficulty swallowing, GERD and heartburn), indigestion (dyspepsia), gastric and duodenal ulcers, celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease.His particular interest is the diagnosis and management of colon polyps and colon cancer. Dr. Herman has published extensively in the gastroenterology literature with a focus on the diagnosis and management of gasrointestinal cancers and endoscopic diagnostic and therapeutic technology
Dr. Lawrence Herman has performed more than 15,000 colonoscopies and endoscopies. Having trained at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, he specializes in technically difficult examinations utilizing the FUSE endoscope.
It has been twenty years since there has been major innovation in colonoscopy. To date, standard, forward-viewing scopes give the physician a limited 170 degree field of view (similar to driving a car with blinders on). Dr. Herman and Carnegie Hill Endoscopy are pleased to offer our patients the latest advancement in endoscope technology – Fuse® Full Spectrum Endoscopy®. Fuse removes these "blinders" and enables us to detect a significantly higher number of potentially pre-cancerous polyps and provide you with the peace of mind in knowing you received the most advanced screening available.
Fuse is revolutionizing colonoscopy by providing a panoramic 330 degree view of the colon, almost double the view of standard colonoscopies.
If you plan on having a colonoscopy or endoscopy, and your physician is not using FUSE technology, then you may be getting an inferior, and potentially incomplete, examination.
No malpractice history found for New York.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
