Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Given that psychiatry is the "listening profession," was frustrating to work with a therapist like Dr Hertzberg, who didn't seem to listen to what I was telling him.

I think Dr. Hertzberg is terrific. I have been seeing him for 8 years and he has always been kind, compassionate, responsive and very helpful. He is a great listener and remembers and asks about details about myself and my family. I have great confidence in his opinions. He helped me out in a very difficult time and I don't know what I would have done without him.

I agree with other reviews that Dr. Hertzberg is very kind and I like his direct approach. I have found him to be very dependable, going out of his way to complete refills with short turn-arounds, for example. He prescribed really good meds for me--I am very grateful. I gave him a lesser rating because when I meet with him in the afternoons or early evenings, he can often become extremely drowsy, one time falling completely asleep. I schedule all my appointments with him early in the day.

Seems to be in it for the money, takes alot of vacations, he's probably burned out. He should retire. One time he offered to do one of our sessions over the phone becuase I was missing an appointment he still wanted me to pay full price. He will rush you out of his office. He is very upfront and not condescending . He even offers you his cellphone number. Bottom line, devolping a relationship with a doctor is a huge investment of time. Some of us don't have the luxury. Choose wisely.

Pleasant but seemed to be "retired on the job." Quite forgetful--sometimes didn't remember his ownmedical advice.

He is a great doctor and a very kind person too, I have been seeing him for years. I have insurance but I choose to see him and pay out of pocket because he's helped me so much and i wouldn't want to see anyone else.
