Referred to Dr Steven Herman for spot on lung found during a routine chest x-ray. He immediately took charge of my case and explained in detail what would occur. His brilliance and experience was obvious from the first minute of our conversation. A battery of tests were set, as we sought further clarification of the spot. Valentina Kolker his assistant worked to make it all come together. They answered e-mails promptly and professionally. A phone call after hours from Dr Herman confirmed that we had the best of the best on my case. I am a complicated case with lots of side issues, but he was able to bring everyone together to ensure my well-being. All business for sure, but this specialty requires the utmost in concentration. At the end, Dr Herman's and Valentina's smiles and encouragement shine through. During my post-op stay, when either one walked into the room you could feel the respect and reverence from everyone. Thank you Dr Herman & Valentina Kolker!

When diagnosed with a lung tumor my primary doctor had already set up an appointment with Dr. Herman for me. I am so glad he did. Dr. Herman explained, in detail, what we were dealing with. The plan of treatment, including surgery. I had the surgery in April, 2018 and have had two scans since and all was clear. Dr. Herman is "old school" and when speaking to him I immediately felt assured in his ability to do the very best he could for me.
