The wait was minimal and the doctor was very attentive. I was very impressed with his bedside manner as he wasvery engaging. The doctor took time to carefully diagnose every symptom and potential causes while looking through my previous medical history for any possible causes. The attention to detail was very impressive

Great as always. I tend to pass out when I get blood drawn. Today it happened and Michael and the techwere right by my side to bring me back! I hope they had a nice little laugh about it as I tend to do when I’m feeling a little better. Always a pleasure coming here.

Appreciate the alerts and reminders for appointment time but a call plus 2 automated calls plus a couple emails and a text is too excessive, would prefer just a text please. Thank you.

I have struggled to find a good doctor because I have odd insurance. I am so glad that he take so many! Definitely check with your provider first because mine wasn't listed here on zocdoc. He is very informative and honest! I thoroughly trust his opinion. He is a busy man, but he takes the time to make you feel like your voice has been heard. I was diagnosed with celiac and he has helped me understand and navigate whats going on. If you want a holistic approach, he may not be the guy for you. But if you want answers backed by science and lots of research, then you are in the right hands!

I saw Dr. Herman once in January and after keeping me waiting for 45 minutes, he ended up being extremely thorough and professional. He did a full history and exam and let me ask plenty of questions. However, when I went back this morning, he kept me waiting for 40 minutes after which I promptly left. Nobody seemed to care that I had been kept waiting, except for the nice man who showed me to the exam room. Then when I tried to call about my re-scheduled appointment I was put on hold for 10 minutes and ended up just canceling the appointment. Dr. Herman seems like a great doctor, but he should really invest in keeping patients informed about wait times and I would urge him to run a more efficient office. I, unfortunately, won't be returning.

Welcoming and helpful reception staff, Michael who took initial readings, drew blood and gave shot did so perfectly and was very kind. Dr Herman spent 25 minutes asking questions and getting to know me - great bedside manner and calming. Explained everything well and answered any questions I had. Look forward to Doc H becoming my primary care physician.

I went to see Dr Herman with some concerns about excessive stomach noise in addition to my GI concerns. He said he had never heard anyone complain about this before which seemed odd, he did order what seemed like a pretty comprehensive stool sample but I never heard back about the results.

One of the best doctor's I've ever seen. I wouldn't describe Dr. Herman as just a doctor. He's a scholar. I can tell he is very well-read and up to date with his knowledge of studies and new information in his field. He made a comment during our talk that I change doctors often. If I found a doctor this good from the start I wouldn't have ever changed. I definitely recommend Dr. Herman. In my experience NY Presbyterian trained and affiliated doctors such as Dr. Herman tend to be of a different standard altogether.

This is the kind of service that we can only dream about. From intake by his office staff to actual face-time with the doctor, to follow-up on getting the procedures scheduled, assistance and support pre-procedure and finally the procedure itself Incredibly attentive, caring staff. Reassuring and gentle in the or. Would that all medical care for everyone would be like this.

Dr. Herman is excellent; I could not recommend him more enthusiastically. His easygoing, professional bedside manner put me immediately at ease; his articulation of my issues and the treatments and interventions for them were extremely knowledgable and intelligible; and the overall ease with which my entire visit went was amazing. I felt immediately in good hands. I highly recommend him.

The doctor was excellent - attentive, humorous, reassuring - and his staff were friendly. The only negative bit, apart from the wait time, was the timing of the guy who came to inform me about a lab I had to get done elsewhere - I was standing there in a gown and nothing else waiting for the doctor to exam me and all the sudden this other person popped in. No big deal, but not the least awkward thing in the world.
