Office is completely incompetent!
in Orlando, FL |
He was excellent, answered all my questions. I had an robotic assisted upper lobectomy. I never experienced an ounce of pain. He was friendly and approachable on his hospital rounds. One of his residents did an excellent job of removing the tubes without any pain. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Herrera
