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.
