My wife and I have been Dr. Herrel's patients since we moved to Hopkinsville four years ago from LA. In our experience, his services, starting from his qualifications, expertise, bedside manners, and patient care beat some of the best doctors we have seen in LA. His staff and Dr. Herrell is extremely caring and talented. During one emergency, he opened his office at 6.00 am and treated me. He performed my cataract and it is working well. I wish I could give him rating of more than five. Every time I called his office, the staff is pleasant and courteous. His nurses and assistant Ms. Cook are caring and technically superior. My best wishes.
