I have never been called with test or lab results. I received a call one time saying that I needed to see a specialist for an X-ray and was not explained what the concern was. I have called the office on numerous occasions and never been able to talk to my doctor. this is troubling to me.

Dr. Herder rocks! I was a little anxious and nervous about talking to a woman Dr. about men's issues, she has made the process as natural and easy as she could possibly could. Even though I can tell that she is very busy, she always takes the time to listen to me and has been spot on when diagnosing my issues. Obviously a very smart, talented and dedicated Dr. who cares about her patients.

She always spends enough time with me, answers my questions so I can understand them and is available on MyChart for the times I have questions that don't need her in person. When I get the pre-appointment blood work done, it shows up on MyChart so I can see it and we can discuss anything I have questions about at the time of the appointment.

Dr. Herder is a wonderful doctor. She is professional in every aspect, and it is apparent that she has been well trained and knows how to use that knowledge to benefit the patient. I have e-mailed her several times with questions on a variety of subjects, and she has responded in a thorough and timely manner. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Herder.

The provider is friendly and sympathetic and kind. It would be better, however, if less time was spent reading her computer and more time looking at me. This trend appears to be common among modern care providers.
