"I saw Dr. Herpolsheimer today.  I see him every  6 months .  It's my second visit since we moved here from California.  He is kind, caring ,attentive plus his medical training is most impressive.  His clinical skills are stellar. Patricia, his nurse practioneer is a true asset to his practice."



"I saw Dr. H for the first time a few weeks ago.  The front office staff was fine but the wait time was a bit long, but I think it's unfortunately the new norm for any doctor in the valley.  Dr. H's nurse was extremely nice and friendly.  I didn't have to wait long for Dr. H and was was also very friendly and kind.  I doubt have any complaints about the staff, the nurses or Dr H."



"I read these reviews prior to my appt and was apprehensive to say the least. My experience today was good. My visit was short and to the point. Dr H listened to my concerns as well as answered my questions. I had no issues with him at all. There was a bit of a wait, but I'm sure that is routine at any office you will visit.  I mainly wrote this as I'm sure most people are quick to review if they are unhappy, but I am satisfied with the visit and figured I should post another point of view."



"Dr. Herpolsheimer delivered my baby boy on June 4th via C Section. He is also one of my regular ObGYN doctors. Dr. H. is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors I've seen. He is straight forward and to the point.  Thank you doc for delivering my beautiful baby boy! We are so grateful it was you delivering that night."



"I just came from my first appt at this office and felt the need to write this review. Since I am new to the area, I found it difficult to find an in-network Obgyn taking new patients with a less than 6 month waiting list. I too read the reviews for Dr Herpolsheimer and was hesitant to give him a try, but I'm glad I did. My annual exam was just as it should be. He took the time to talk to me and answer any questions I had. I found him to be pleasant and respectful. And I will be keeping him as my Dr. I just wanted to share a positive experience for others who may be considering him as their Dr."
