December 23, 2013

Our family loves Dr. Herman and is happy to hear that he is not leaving his practice.

September 09, 2013

Our son was born with a unique set of circumstances which required us to see Dr. Herman more frequently than usual. And for several months, we took our son to the clinic once a week and we saw Dr. Herman monthly for quite a while after that. In the many hours that we have spent in the clinic we have never felt like we were a burden or nuisance. Dr. Herman has always validated our concerns and many questions and on several occasions, when we were especially worried that our son was seriously ill, he made himself immediately available to us. For our son and for our family, he has provided us with exceptional care and we trust him implicitly.

September 09, 2013

I have always felt well taken care of by Dr. Herman. He is helpful and knowledgeable. He understands our active lifestyle.

August 26, 2013

Dr. Hermann has been the care provider for our two children from birth to adult. He will be missed in the clinical but will do a great job with his administrative roles.
