If I could give a higher rating than excellent for all aspects of my experience with Dr Herman, I would. Dr. Herman is not only a skilled surgeon, but his patience and bedside manner is extraordinary. The entire staff work together seamlessly to provide a positive experience.They made me feel comfortable, respected and safe before, during and after surgery. Even going as far as asking what music I liked and giving me warm blankets. If only I could go to this office and Dr Herman for all my medical needs, I’d be set.

Dr. Herman saw my daughter in the ER to stitch up a cut on her forehead. I wanted a plastic surgeon to do it given the location. The hospital originally told me someone from plastics could only be there in 5 hours. Dr. Herman was able to come almost immediately - because of him I didn’t have to wait with an upset toddler. When he arrived, he had a really calm demeanor. He was so patient and kind with both myself and my scared 3 year old. He did a great job and reassured my worries about future scarring. I know he is capable of far more than what he did for me and I would 100% recommend him.

We had the best experience with the Plastic Surgery Center, particularly Dr. Herman and his excellent staff. The staff were attentive, professional and expedient. Dr. Herman is probably the best surgeon on the east coast. His skill not withstanding, he has a warm and competent bed side manner and he did a tremendous job with our 14 year old son. Amazing!! Thank you so much!!
