"Amazing Dr....thank you for listening and getting rid of my pain."
"He really listened to my concerns and provided a solution. "
"I am a long time patient of Dr. Herpolsheimer. I like that he gives me specific, medical fact based answers when I have questions - rather than general, high level information. It is great that the office runs efficiently and doesn't appear to overbook, showing me he is a doctor that values my time as well as his own."
