I had seen Dr. Hemmerdinger many times for my ear issues. I have bad ear wax and he was very clear on how to keep the wax under control. I highly recommend Dr. Hemmerdinger. He is the best when it comes to your ears and hearing!

I brought my wife in to see Dr. Hemmerdinger. We saw him in the Pomona office. I was very impressed with his office. His staff was nice and very friendly. His assistant was very nice and welcoming. Dr. Hemmerdinger was caring and very polite. I read some of these negative reviews at first I was hesitant to see him, but glad I did. I give him and his staff 10 stars!!!

He's a horrible, inconsiderate and uncaring doctor that I wish I never came in contact with. He didn't really care to hear what I had to say about my injury that happened to my nose. And when he was done talking to me he just went and sat down at his computer. I asked if I needed any paper work to bring out to the front and he didn't even look at me when he said no you're good. RUDE!!!

Dr. Hemmerdinger is great. I trust him completely. He listens to my concerns and addresses them accordingly. He has never steered my wrong. Great bed side manners.

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.

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!
