Dr. Herms is a very compassionate person and gets on your level when he talks to you. He takes his time to explain what is going on. Not one time does he ever make you feel like you are just a patient. I highly recommend Dr. Herms. – T., July 2022
He has always been polite and helpful to me. Thank you all for your courtesy. I'm in remission from stage 4 lung cancer thanks to the wonderful staff and my favorite doctor. – V.R., July 2022
Dr. Herms personally greeted me in the waiting area. I did not feel rushed during our consultation and he thoroughly answered any questions I had. He was well prepared for my visit since he inquired about non-cancer-related health issues I had experienced recently. I have always appreciated his calming nature during what could have been very stressful times. I feel quite fortunate to have Dr. Herms as my oncologist. – Anonymous, June 2022
