I was running a few minutes late to my appointment and the office staff couldn't be nicer about it! they took it all in their strides like the professionals they are, and were very understanding of my reason s for notbeing on time. As soon as I'd filled the little paperwork I was asked to fill out, the doctor was ready to see me with a smile. Dr. Hersh is a warm individual who very clearly cares about her patients. All in all, they've made a wonderful first impression!

We were 100% satisfied with our visit to Dr. Hersh. She was very friendly with my 2 year old daughter (the patient). We left her office with more information on my daughter's allergies and a game plan going forward. I'd highly recommend Dr. Hersh to anyone.
