Dr. Shawn Hermenau, MD has a perfect technique . He wants an MRI before your first visit. Later Dr. may ask for a CT Scan w/contrast dye. Problem was severe headaches, left arm & palm aches, and upper chest pain on left side. MRI suggested surgery of my neck. Dr told me my left arm pain & chest pain will immediately go away. IT DID!!! I'm pain free. My surgery was February 20th, 2017. No heavy lifting, bending over. Listen to Dr. do as he ask recovery is great. He is very gifted! Amen.

We waited 90 + days to get an appointment with this doctor. The day of our appointment we were in and out of his office in less than ten minutes. He never did an exam or discuss with us what other options there could be for chronic neck pain and stiffness. He said he would refer us to a "pain specialist". We immediately tryec to get an appointment with that doctor and were given an appointment another 60 days out. We were given info they didn't like our insurance. His front office rude too.

First visit Dr. seemed interested in my problem, but other 2 visits he just seemed to be in a rush to get through all of his patients.

After reviewing my symptions and my MRI, it was concluded that I am not a patient for any surgery now nor in my future. My spine is such a mess that Dr. Shawn would not know where to start or where to end. He also told me that IF he were to do surgery, I would have a 70/30 chance of ever walking again. I love it when Doktors don't lie. He referred me to an awesome P.M. Doktor. I still have some back pain, but with the help of a Nerostimulator I can function. Husband is pleased with his surgeries
