Dr. Scott is very professional, focused, thorough and caring. Maria and the other staff members are helpful, nice and caring.
A week later and still no auth for my prescription? Nobody answers phones there, worst front desk office ever
I've had 3 visit to Dr. Herbert's office and have been highly satisfied with his service, treatments, and professionalism. I've also never waited more than 5 minutes to see him. Highly recommended doctor.
The wait was long, but the staff was professional and nice. Doctor Herbert was great, caring, and thorough with everything.
Very nice office, staff and Doctor.
He was very professional and informative. I scheduled a follow up in 2 weeks as well.
He was very personable. Listened and advised. His staff was wonderful, Maria was a blast she was funny and knew how to get info wi trout seeming imperious. I am keeping this practice as my "go to" for foot are. A Dr that listens with a staff that's happy, Bravo.
very honest, kind, and gentle! super fantastic dr.
Great Doctor, who's very knowledgeable and professional.
Great doctor! Highly recommend this facility. Very happy with my first appt.
Seems like a great guy!
Dr. Scott Herbert is a sweetheart! Today I went to my first appointment, which I booked the night before with ZocDoc. I had an infected toe. The receptionist is very pleasant and helpful. As another reviewer pointed out, I had filled out the first-time patient forms on ZocDoc, but was still required to fill out the paperwork in the doctor's office. The receptionist explained that ZocDoc does not send her the paperwork. So I filled out the forms again. Dr. Herbert is extremely kind, very patient, and will give you options about what to do about your foot issue. He is good at giving needles, and will not cause you pain. I highly recommend this podiatrist. I think he is the best.
I think he was very professional and was very kind and caring considering the fact that I hated needles and I told him so , I didn't realize that he had already injected my feet . Very good and so is the staff .
Very informative! Got right to the issues at hand and provided several options for comfort and recovery! Highly recommended !!!
Dr. Herbert was very nice. He took his time and made me feel very comfortable.
I booked an appointment based on positive reviews from this site. Disappointing. First, I made the appointment through ZocDoc and it was confirmed. When I showed up at the appointed date/time, I found out that A) there were other patients booked for the same time B) the doctor didn't show up till 15-20 minutes past the appointment time C) The office does not seem to know how to handle ZocDoc appointments - or instances where the patient has pre-filled out forms to save time. **Twice I was asked to fill out the same forms I had filled out online already. I refused. Second, I think most people know that foot surgery (in this case, bunion surgery) is a pretty big deal and requires months, if not years for recovery. I'm not sure why a podiatrist would push surgery on someone without even looking at an x-ray. I'm also not sure why a podiatrist would play it off as a "no big deal' surgery. Surgery was pushed instead of orthopedics, which were described as 'really high priced and insurance doesn't cover them'. I'm certain this is untrue and would depend on the insurance provider. I was mentally finished with the appointment 2 minutes after it began, which was 30 minutes after I got there. Disappointing.
The doctor and his staff were extremely professional. When I couldn't find the office the nurse made sure to step outside to find me. The doctor was really nice and offered me options for my tendinitis. I opted for an injection and even though I'm terrified of needles, he made sure to make the injection as painless as possible. He's super nice, patient and knows his stuff. If you're having feet troubles definitely wobble over to Dr. Herbert's office. He'll having you walking pain free in no time!
I was treated very professionally and will definitely continue.
It was refreshing to see a doctor who listened closely. I felt Dr Herbert understood my concerns. I came for his professional opinion went above and beyond.
Very nice doctor and extremely knowledgable. I was scared to get shots in my foot for an ingrown toenail and he was calming and patient and gave me multiple options for care. Would highly recommend.
Great doctor! I highly recommend him! Very nice staff as well. Very convenient location in Jackson Heights also convenient Saturday office hours too.
Hes great and really knows what hes doing!! Totally recommend him to all my friends and relativez.
Personable & very informative.
Very courteous, professional, and informative. Very happy I choose this office!
Was able to make an appt. for the same day. Wait was less than 15 minutes and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to going back in two weeks for a follow up. Can't always say that about a Doctor's appt.
Dr. Herbert was very knowledgeable and listened to my issues. He gave many options. He was very kind and made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend him.

I am very happy and satisfied after visited Dr Herbert
Dr. Herbert was very easy to talk to and immediately offered advice for me regarding how to cure my ailment. I would go back to him for a follow up if necessary. As commented by others, the office only accepts cash for co-pays, so just be aware of that.
great dr very friendly
He is fantastically talented, and very personable. I will always use his office for podiatry related issues. I couldn't be more grateful to him...
I was very pleased with the service he provided. Receptionist was very nice and professional also. Office was clean.
Saw me right away. Nurses were incredibly friendly. Only negative feedback would be that its cash only.
the best doctor visit i had - doctor and his staff are very frindly they know what they are doing i recommended to everyone looking for good doctor
Dr. Herbert was one of the best podiatrists that I have come In contact with. He was able to offer different courses of treatment and was truly delightful. I was so pleased that I recommended my family and friends to pay him a visit. Thank you Dr. Herbert!
very good visit
He's a very nice doctor. Very gentle and knowledge. I certainly prefer him over the other podiatrist I've been seeing the last year and a half.
It was awesome... very sweet man, and its a pleasant and comfortable environment. Would highly recommend to anyone.
He was listen and explained what I was there for in detail.
Thoughtful, attentive, fun and genuinely badass.
Dr. Herbert appears to be a good doctor, there is however a fatal flow in this practice, they insist in the co-payment before the treatment which is fine, however Dr. Herbert "boss" does not accept credit cards of any type, I was seen and after the visit was asked to go to the bank to withdraw the money, it was cold, raining and I decide to send him a check instead of adding more expenses to the additional $40 of the one way taxi ride....only to receive a phone call later asking me for the money. So take your insurance card, a picture ID and enough money besides the round trip taxi fare.
He was awesome. Took time to go over my medical history. Had great recommendations. He was very patient and I will definitely use him again!
My son was brought in to see Dr Herbert. As soon as the doctor seen my son's foot he knew EXACTLY, what it was & how he was going to go about treating it. My husband thought the Doctor was very nice & explained everything Thoroughly. We will be scheduling appts. For my 2 daughters also. Thanks Zoc Doc!!
Very informative and professional
Great doctor , very caring !
Scoot is a very pateient friendly and smart Doctor. I am glad to have him taking care of me.
He is a great doctor I loved him. He was very nice and he knows what he's doing. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a foot doctor.
I liked Dr. Herbert he has a great bed side manner .. easy to talk to and knowledgeable , only thing is that at the Queens office (only opened on Saturdays) he has a partner so even if you book with Dr Herbert you maybe not get him but his associate who makes the consultation feel rushed and sometimes is so busy talking (and looking around)that he didnt notice when he was using the electric file that he nicked the skin on my daughters toe and looked at her as if she had 2 heads when she asked for a bandage.. suffice to say it was a turn off ... but i had an ingrown toe nail which was horrible and i had the pleasure of having Dr. Herbert work on it and its like new
disagreed with one of the charges
He took the time to answer all my questions and explained step by step what the procedure (surgery I need for my foot) would entail.
Very knowledgable and great bed side manner
Overall very understanding, took the time to go through all the options. Few complaints except my treatment seemed very general (went for tendinitis)
Dr. Herbert visit was remarkable, from the fast and easy appointment to Anna at the front desk to his quality of care. Highly recommended for all your Podiatry needs!!!!!
The doctor visit was excellent. He was very informative, and there was no wait. he even clipped my toenails and I didn't even go there for that. What a Doctor. Prior to me going to see him, I felt hopeless. When I left I felt like I had new feet and was confident that my problem will get better. The office from the waiting area to the treatment room was warm and hospitable. His assistant made me feel right at home. I can not wait until my follow up appointment! Thanks Dr. Herbert!!
He was very friendly with a good bedside manner. It was a bit of an inconvenience with the cash only for the co-pay fee but he was really laid back about it. He allowed me to pay after services were rendered and was polite and told me not to rush at all. I really appreciated the genuine courtesy. Although my visit was not for any major foot concerns, I was impressed and would refer him to friends.
Dr. Herbert was friendly and very well knowledged about feet. I rarely see any sort of doctor so I had a lot of questions and he fielded them all very well. Also, my feet are not the most attractive and he went straight to work on them.
Very professional and knowledgable. Answered questions professionally and directly. Highly recommend this doctor.
My visit with Dr. Herbert went very well and smoothly. I had foot surgery years ago on my left foot for a bunion and wanted to have it corrected because the Dr. who did it previously could have filed the bone down a little bit more. He told me it didn't look bad in which it probably doesn't but I feel it does and that I should leave it alone. He doesn't want to correct anything that does not need correction just for cosmetic purposes. In which I thanked him for being honest and not a money grubbing doctor.
I appreciate the fact that he looks for all resolutions and doesn't immediately jump to surgical remidies.
THE BEST!! Takes time to speak with you. Very compassionate and thorough.
Dr. Herbert was great. He gave me a few choices as to what we could do for my sprain, and was honest and straight forward. I appreciated his honesty and willingness to be transparent with his thoughts on how to get my ankle better.
Dr. Herbert was very professional and didn't try to get me to have surgery for a problem that didn't need an operation.
The doctor seemed very nice, but the office was running so far behind (at least 1 hour) that I left.
Highly professional and good nature!
we like him very much, specially that he takes his time to answer all your questions and helps my daughter with her feet problem.
He was well aware of my problem and took action to start to relieve the problem. Good work!
It was great! Instant pain relief! Dr. Herbert is very nice.
Good listener, great bedside manner. Felt I was
HE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AS WELL AS ANA HIS ASSISTANT I RECOMMEND HIS OFFICE TO EVERYONE BECAUSE HE LISTEN TO ME AND HELP ME TAKE CARE OF MY PAIN. THANKS DOCTOR
Great!! Dr Herbert made me feel very comfortable. He was very professional and my condition was taken care on my first visit. I felt better instantly. I have follow up visit with him in a week. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Herbert.
Friendly, professional, helpful
Dr Herbert made me felt very comfortable. He was very professional and my condition was taken care on my first visit. I'm going back in 10 days for my other toe. I definitely recommend Dr Herbert if you have any problems with ingrown nails, you will be satisfied.( : - )
The first thing this doctor said to me was " Do you speak English?" I was highly offended being that English is the only language I speak. -- not a good way to introduce yourself or start a conversation with your patient. He did not seem interested in my issue and couldnt even fake like he was. I went to him for a second opinion and ended up going back to my first doctor. I walked out of there and was told I was "all set" knowing the receptionist who seemed uninterested in anything the doctor told her, did not even check my insurance. Nonetheless I received a bill in the mail 2 months later...
Dr. Herbert is very kind, considerate and knowledgeable. Excellent doctor!
HE TOOK HIS TIME, WAS THOROUGH IN EXPLAINING MY COURSE OF TREATMENT, WAS A COMPLETE GENTLEMAN. HE NEVER RUSHED, AND HE TOOK THE TIME TO ASK IF I HAD ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS THAT HE DID NOT ALREADY COVER.
Dr. Herbert figured out the mystery pain in my foot. He was really nice and figured out what was wrong pretty fast! I'd definitely recommend him.
He was very nice and had a lot of knowledge about my injury.
Experience was Great!
Would definitely return for further foot problems!
Zoc doc.com gave me a false apointment time. They booked me for 4:30 but when i got there @ 4:15 they were closed. Im very dissapointed. Waste of time and gas!
Very caring , very professional, excellent care
Friendly and professional
Very friendly and thorough. Went out of his way to accommodate a different insurance plan.
Great doctor. Tooks his time to listen to me. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Herbert had a nice manner about him. He was knowledgeable and really took his time explaining things to me. I very much enjoyed the appointment and if I ever need any more podiatry help, I will be surely going back to see him. Thanks Dr. Herbert!
My experience with Dr Herbert was great. He really took his time explaining to me my options, was very professional but yet... just a really nice person. I would definitly recommend him %100!

Dr Herbert was very pleasant , professional and attentative. I highly recommend him to anyone.
Very friendly. He gave great options to alleviate my issue.
Overall, this was a great visit. There was a mix-up about the timing, as they tried to call me to tell me that the doctor had a meeting and would need to reschedule for an hour after my original appointment. I was out of the country and so didn't get the voicemail, and wished they would have emailed me (via ZocDoc or otherwise), but it seems ZocDoc can only send reminders for now. (I asked ZocDoc to add this feature, and they said they'd work on it.) I did have a brief wait, but the doctor had obviously rushed to get there as soon as possible, and my actual delay ended up being only 30 minutes. I felt Dr. Herbert took ample time with me, didn't try to rush me through, and explained my options well. He is very friendly and open, not arrogant like some doctors. Two notes: 1) Make sure you bring cash for your co-pay, as they don't take credit cards. 2) If Dr. Herbert says something will hurt "a little bit" it may hurt a bit more than that! He must have a high pain threshold...or else I'm just a wimp!
Very Professional, I already recommended him to my family and friends, Thank you
my only criticism was that it wasn't made clear to me until i showed up that the copay was "cash only." so i had to go out to an ATM. also, there were some pretty loud screaming kids in the waiting room, but i know that's just my bad luck. the doctor was very helpful and clear in his recommendations.
He was a very nice and i did not have to wait at all. I know once you hear about him things will cahnge. Do not miss this doctor he is great
Great guy! Scott is very understanding of patients' specific needs and sensitivities, which makes you feel very welcome in the office.
