Patient Comments (9)
The absolute worst. This man has terrible people skills and acts as if you are a nuisance instead of a patient with legitimate concerns. If there is another doctor in your network that you can go see, I recommend you do that. Do not waste your time, energy or money seeing this man.

I have seen Dr. Hemmerdinger in his Poughkeepsie office. After seeing a few other ENT doctors, I went to him. He was able to tell me what is going on with my throat and how to treat it at my first visit. He used a poster on the wall to explain and show me what is happening. He took his time with me and spoke so I would understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Hemmerdinger.
I made an appointment and was able to be seen the next day. I had years of sinus problems and surgery in the past. Dr Hemmerdinger was the first to tell me the underlying reason for my problem. He allowed me to voice all of my questions and concerns. So far he has been right with his diagnosis and treatment. He has always called me back on the same day.

My daughter had an appointment with Dr. Hemmerdinger in his Poughkeepsie office. He knew exactly what she needed to feel better. He explained what to expect for her surgery in detail. He made us feel very comfortable and know that our daughter was getting the best care possible.

Dr. Hemmerdinger has had an excellent bedside manner while caring for our son. He has had two successful surgeries thus far and we could not be more pleased with the care he has received.
Chester, NY |
Has treated me for various ENT issues & operated on me (thyroidectomy).I find him a very nice person & outstanding physician & surgeon. He was the first doctor to correctly diagnose my thyroid problem, which had gone undetected for decades. I was apprehensive about the surgery needed to correct it, but he guided me through it with understanding & kindness, explained everything clearly & thoroughly & very patiently answered all my questions & concerns. Surgery went perfectly, excellent followup!

The facility practice is nice .However this Dr.has very poor patients skills. I happen to be in medicine ,and I know people say skills matter and Dr personalities do not,but not so to me. It should be a holistic experience. He hardly spoke ,never cracked a smile and did not explain a painful procedure.I guess he was competent enough but it was a simple procedure,yet painful . Note to Dr.. There are lots of other ENTs in Westchester.....a connection to your patients is key.
Poughkeepsie, NY |
He was rude & so dismissive of my pain that I left his office in tears. He completely over charged my insurance & due to my deductible structure, I paid this man to insult me and make me cry. Please do not waste your time & money.
New York, NY |
He ignored most of my symptoms, he did perform the tests recommended by my primary doctor, he did no tests at all. He did not explain anything well to me. He brushed off my concerns when I brought them to him.
