Dr. Herron and his staff provide a very comfortable environment. He is very easy to talk to when conversations surrounding health issues can be very stressful. The waiting area and exam rooms are always very clean. Staff is very helpful and professional.

Dr Herron is great and I've never had a bad experience with him! During office visits he spends any amount of time needed, listens intently and explains what he see's with his diagnosis. I've never felt rushed or that he was in a hurry to move me out. When I have questions outside of office visits...more

I'm 62 years old. Dr Herron is the best Primary Care Doctor that I have had. Takes time to explain everything and answers all of your questions and concerns.

He does not rush through physical exams, and takes the time to answer my questions. He always responds to my questions through the office online portal system.

Dr. Herron is by far the BEST doctor I have ever had. Great personality, spends as much time with you as needed, responds to email very quickly and just such a caring, sympathetic man. He doesn't make you feel like a number at a deli lol.
