I had a meniscotomy done. I had lived with the tear for a year and a half. Saw 4 different orthopedic surgeons... none of them believed me and told me my pain did not make sense. One even said I was crazy! . Dr Herrera was the only doctor who actually believed me and did not say I was crazy. He took one look at my MRI zand saw the tear immediately. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Love him! He's repaired a labreal tear in my right hip in 2009 & a total rotator cuff repair in 2014. I currently have an issue with my ankle & he preformed all my testing then referred me to a college of his since he doesn't preform the care that I need. I TRUST him completely; he treats you as a person & his secretary Suzy is amazing! She'll help with any & everything you can think of. He's truly an amazing doctor & if you need to see him for an emergency he'll make time for you at any locati

Dr. Herrera is an outstanding, friendly, professional orthopedic surgeon. He spent a lot of timing explaining options, and performed surgery and limited follow ups. He was available to answer questions after hours. Very good experience and highly recommend.

Completely incompetent staff. After more than an hour they still could not verify health insurance information after providing information numerous times. Unprofessional and not properly trained
