Patient | January 30, 2017

I recommended Dr. Herrmann to my daughter!
Patient | January 27, 2017

Dr. Herrmann is an excellent & caring physician.
Patient | January 27, 2017

Dr. Herrmann is HANDS DOWN the best GP I've ever seen. She listens attentively, is thorough in her exam & questions, & is clear & helpful in suggestions to improve health or address concerns.
Patient | January 26, 2017

This was the best experience I have had and so glad to have found her.
Patient | January 24, 2017

She raised a possible test that we could do and also explained that it has false positives. I opted not to do the test, which I frankly believe that most providers would not even have raised with me in the first place. We can hold that test in our back pocket for next annual visit IF the symptoms continue. I was pleased that I had a say in how we proceeded down what could have been a rabbit trail.
Patient | January 23, 2017

I have no complaints about the provider. She is always ready to listen to my questions and gives me good advice.
