A breath of fresh air. Tells it like it is. Is very clear and precise about your treatment. Sincerely cares about his patients. After surgery, in the hospital, he reviewed my progress 3 times a day. Great bedside manner with a good sense of humor. Best Dr. my I've ever had.

One of the Best!

Dr. Herde is a Godsend to the medical profession. He is everything we all want a doctor to be. I was first referred to him about a year and a half ago and consider the day I was referred to be one of my luckiest days. I can't say enough good things about him and have nothing negative to say.
