Phoned to make an appointment on May 1st 2017. Star was supposed to phone me back to make the appointment. On May 4th still no response, I contacted UCI with a complaint. They again forwarded my info and I was told she would phone me very soon. It is now May 10th, and still no response. So sorry to say I can not recommend this Dr cause I never got to see him! I made an appointment with another neurologist.

Had a terrible experience with Dr. Hermanowicz. Feel fortunate to have found a different neurologist who is actually invested in knowing and talking to her patients, and whom effectively treats my condition. Dr. Hermanowicz misdiagnosed me, and spoke rudely of my previous neurologist. He was condescending, aloof, and self-important. Waited months for an appt and I'm glad I changed neurologists after meeting him. Terrible personality and communication skills.

Avoid this physician as you would the plague. He is arrogant, indifferent, rudely uncommunicative, cold, and gave the most dismissively cursory exam of my daughter's Bell's Palsy..... he did not make the most minimal, cursory effort to offer ANY good or useful information at all. He barely made eye intact, and his entire manner expressed nothing more than his utter indifference to the patient paying for his services. Disgraceful. Dear sir, do please bear in mind art as well as science

He has been my neurologist for ten years. In the past year 2016 something is changing. He no longer makes you feel that he cares about You and acts like he doesn't know you. My last visit I left in tears and we never even talked about the many changes I am going through. Whatever is troubling him it is not right to take it out on your patient. After 10 years of being a patient I don't think I will be returning.
