Dr Hereford has a HORRIBLE bedside manor. I sprained my wrist while taking a shower and he had the gul to accuse my fiancée of being abusive! He also took away my splint and said I only had bruising, I will be getting a second opinion

I know more about Dr. Hereford's knees and the medication he takes than he has told me about mine. He told me multiple times I was too young to have pain (despite a history of school sports, dance, and other physical recreation activities). On my follow up visit after physical therapy he didn't address my concern that the pain had returned after a week and he changed my diagnosis without any explanation or direction on how to address it. A waste of money and now I have to find a new doctor.

Dr. Hereford treated my son for two separate issues. One being a hamstring tear and the other, a broken thumb. He spent much time learning about how the injuries occurred and development of treatment. He is by far, the nicest physician we have ever had. His staff were very polite and welcoming and his nurses were engaging. I have full confidence in Dr. Hereford's ability to diagnose and treat orthopedic issues and injuries.

My bad experience was not necessarily with the Dr himself, however it is with his office staff and manager so as one of the doctors there I would think that this should and does affect him. Therefore I am giving him a bad review based on my experience with his office and the pure lack of professionalism and poor customer service that I experienced. They were not able to help me and I was told this by Dr. Hereford himself BUT they deemed it necessary to bill me $160.00. Just plain wrong!!!!!!
