Very personable with great bedside manner. Demonstrated she was very capable and performed procedure with no pain or discomfort. Will be seeing her again.

I saw Dr. Herman today for the first time because Dr. Emery was not available. My wife asked if I will go back to Dr. Emery next time. I told her I would go to either one. Both take time to review my concerns and do a thorough exam. I would recommend either doctor.

Dr. Herman is friendly, almost overly so. She took the time to introduce herself, but her demeanor is consistent with a new physician - slightly awkward and lacking the self-assurance that will probably increase with more experience. The problem I encountered was Dr. Herman's conjecture that my skin condition might be linked to breast tumors. Besides being "out of the blue," Dr. Herman was quite fixated on this possibility. She refused to treat me without a biopsy - even with topical meds.

Dr. Herman was particularly attentive to my son's special needs. He is autistic and was not a good candidate for many of the treatments available for removing his warts from his fingers. Despite the challenges, she found a way to adapt the application of liquid nitrogen to his growths. He is a big kid for his age and very strong, so this wasn't easy. She managed to make this a surprisingly pleasant experience because she had such a warm personality and kind demeanor.
