Dr. Hertik is that all too rare combination of great skill and superior insight/empathy. I've found his diagonises thorough and accurate. He communicates treatment options concisely without bias towards self-enumeration. His surgical expertise is top notch. He's a keeper.

I am always please when I go to see Dr. Herstik, his main concern is how you are doing...any pain or discomfort he always addresses first. He listens and is sympathetic and immediately addresses how to resolve your issue. I walked out of his office out of pain and assured that I could contact him at any time should I need to.

The doctor's assistant spoke to me for about 15 minutes. He discussed the problem and was quite helpful. Dr Herstik then came into the examination room and made several attempts to try and relieve the pain in my heel. He was unsuccessful. He then determined that I should try a Matrix Trulife brace. He would order it and have it available in a few days. He then left me with his assistant. He never explained how the brace would work and why he recommended this specific brace. I would have liked more discussion about my problem and why he felt this brace would be a solution to relieve the pain in my heel. He only spent 7 minutes discussing my problem. His assistant was quite helpful, but I left not knowing what the solution was.

Diagnosis rather cursory. Non-prescription in-soles turned out to be covered by my insurance, so now I must complete forms and send to my insurance provider.

Dr. Herstik immediately diagnosed problem, demonstrated problem so I could see nerve damage in right foot, vs. left; quickly taped up & padded my foot providing instant pain relief, provided me with additional tape and pads and rx for follow up care, and invited me back for followup visit in one week.

Dr. Herstik was very personable and efficient. He's very competent, professional, direct, and he did not try to sell me a treatment that I didn't need. My only complaint is the very long wait time I experienced: I arrived at 4pm sharp for my appointment, had the paperwork completed in advance, signed a few papers, paid my co-pay, and was led to an office about 10 minutes after I arrived. After this, I had to wait ~30 minutes in a patient room until I was actually seen by Dr. Herstik. It wasn't a huge deal, and I understand these things happen, but I probably would have left had an assistant not checked up on me. That being said, I would definitely return and highly recommend Dr. Herstik to other patients.

I happened to be at Shift, the PT that shares the floor, and had a new issue, a twisted ankle that happened the previous day.I wanted someone to see it right away, and was pleased that he gave me an appointment in half an hour. The visit, after the x-ray, was very brief and expedient, since it wasn't serious.He gave me a brace, explained how to use and I left.

He is pleasant and very attentive...listens to me and then talks to me. I never feel like the visit was a "drive-by." I never feel like I am being rushed out of the office; he takes as much time with you as you need/desire. Answers questions respectfully. Just a gentle doctor and also pretty painless!

I truly appreciated his easy-going manner and his concern. I was able to call him on a Saturday morning when I was in particular distress and he was incredibly helpful and showed no sign that I had interrupted his day. Office visits were clear and quick -- not officious and rushed. A great doctor with a wonderful staff as well.
