Dr. Herod is the best doctor I have ever had. She is super easy to talk to. She takes the time to listen to all my concerns and ensures me everything is okay. I understand wait time is going to be long. That is okay because she is either taking time with her patients or delivering a baby. I would want her to take her time with me and I would want her to be there to deliver my baby so I understand.

Dr. Herod is really good. She explains everything in depth without making you feel dumb. I know I asked a lot of dumb questions because i had never had. Child before, but she remained patient with me and explained. She's also very nice and compassionate. Even when I was in labor, she seemed to sincerely care for my well being as well as my child. I do have to say though that the wait time is long and good luck with getting a response from her personally via My Chart online.

Dr Herod is compassionate and personal with each patient. Even years between children she remember me, my friends, my children by name, my husband by name. And takes the time to sit and talk with me each time we visit never making me feel rushed or like I'm keeping her from other patients. If I ever have any concerns she and her staff are quick to respond via mychart or phone call.

She is wonderful. Really listens to your concerns and explains all of your options. She is modern and does not try to shame me for being an unmarried female on birth control, like some doctors do.
