in New York, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Herman on and off for about 10 years (off only because of living out of NY Area). He has a great bedside manner and adds a bit of humor to his interactions with patients. More importantly he's always treated any health issue that I've had efficiently and correctly including a rare and correct diagnosis that he recently was able to figure out. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a primary doctor.

I've seen doctors for sixty-four years, and Dr. Herman is the best doctor I've ever had. He diagnosed my Celiac condition (after four other gastroenterologists failed to do so.) He also diagnosed a rare virus called CMV. Dr. Herman listens well, and is thorough with his examinations. All of his referrals to specialists have been top notch. Dr. Herman stays up to date with his knowledge and practice, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to all!
I have been a long time patient of Dr Hermans. He is absolutely the best doctor. He understands his patients have needs and addresses all the problems and is caring and complete. He explains everything to you and you walk out of his office understating what is going on. He is smart and with the times. You can always contact him by email and he will get back to you in a very timely fashion. Dr Herman is WONDERFUL! I would not go to anyone else.

My husband and I have been patients for several years and we can't say enough good things about Dr. Herman. The office runs very efficiently but he always has time to spend with his patients - he cares about his patients as people and spends the time to ask if there is anything going on of concern. He also happens to be an excellent physician and diagnostician.

Long time patient of Dr. Herman. He motivated me (and my partner) to lose weight and get our eating habits in order, and we both lost 30 pounds each and have kept it off for over 7 years. He is compassionate and understanding and listens. He also gives you time to discuss things in detail. He has done colonoscopies and polyp removal with no issues. He has given the best referrals (hematologist, ENT, Proctologist, Orthopedist Ophthalmologist and Cardiologist). I would recommend him highly and

My sister has been a long time patient of Dr. Herman, she recently had a medical emergency and I called for his advice. He gave me great advice and has called me every few days to check up on her. I have never encountered a Doctor so caring. I would recommend him to anyone.

in New York, NY |
Dr. Herman is a smart, caring and thorough doctor who is genuinely concerned about his patients. Many times he has squeezed me into his busy schedule and, after examining me, taken his time to explain what is wrong and what I should do about it. He has also performed endoscopies and colonoscopies on me and other family members. Dr. Herman responds to emails quickly and calls when necessary. His office staff is also excellent. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking great, high-quality care.
New York, NY |
Dr. Herman has been my doctor for over 15 years. During that time he has been completely professional while making me feel cared for and listened to. He correctly diagnosed a bowel obstruction which required successful emergency surgery and I will be forever grateful for his expertise and care.
New York, NY |
I have been Dr. Herman's patient for more than 15-years. He is courteous, informative, accessible and accurate...absolutely highest marks.

Dr. Herman says...

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.
