Patient Comments (5)
in Chantilly, VA |
Dr. Hershman is the BEST doctor in the orthopedic profession. He is very patient and thorough. He takes the time to really listen to you and then works with you to come up with a plan that everyone agrees on. He has spent so much of his time making sure I was completely comfortable and understood what was the best plan for me. I never felt rushed in any of my appointments. He is truly concerned with patient outcomes. He works so hard to help you feel healthy again. Highly recommended!

I use Grand Rounds as a second opinion for my medical issues, and what the staff at Grand Rounds do is they gather medical records from all doctors or clinics you've already seen and find a doctor, whom they submit all paperwork, MRI, CT, X-rays, etc, too and that doctor will give their expert opinion. I was fortunate and blessed int that Dr. Hershman is part of their expert panel. After reviewing all my records he was able to provide more a better clearer answer than any other doctor.

Dr. Hershman was friendly and knowledgeable. He spent considerable time with me answering all my questions and explained how my problem could be resolved. He was patient, caring and familiar with the latest techniques which made me feel very comfortable. His understanding attitude put me at ease and I left his office much more relaxed than when I entered.

Dr. Hershman performed surgery on my spine for a fracture when he was practicing in Florida. Couldn't have asked for a kinder, better physician or better care. The experience went smoothly, stress-free. I am only upset now, because I was searching him out for a consultation and found that Mass General got him!
