Patient Comments (9)

She didn't take seriously the symptoms I was describing to her. Instead she just wanted to do a hearing test right away. Called a week later to tell her assistant my condition was unchanged an didn't receive a call back. I had to call the office again.

Dr. Hertler is just a fantastic doctor. She is very knowledgable, caring, and thorough. She actively listens to the concerns of her patients to make sure they are aware, knowledgeable, and comfortable. She is truly a "doctor" (teacher). I recommend her highly.

My daughter and I went in for sinusitis and face pain. Was seen by a PA who didn't listen to a word we said, then insisted on testing us for allergies "to rule them out", despite histories of having none. Still have no allergies and got a bill for $900 each. Visit was useless and a waste of money.
