in Milwaukee, WI |
I highly recommend Dr. Hertler and Alliance ENT for their comfortable office and friendly staff. I go in regularly for my allergies and have always had a short wait time and a pleasant experience.
in Brookfield, WI |
I had a 9:00 a.m. appointment and I arrived at 8:45 a.m. to complete paperwork. I was kept waiting until 9:35 a.m. Once Dr. Hertler did come into the examination room, she did not examine me, but instead explained I would need testing although the technician could not accommodate me that day and I would have to reschedule another appointment. What a waste of time! Then she sent me a bill for $306.00. I felt robbed.
