About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I called Dr. Herder's office 2x to ask if MRI results were in. Also, Dr. Herder's office did not ask for a follow up appointment. A follow up appointment was suggested on the MRI report by Dr. [...]. Is it necessary for me as a patient to call and as for followup or should the doctor suggest that I come back to discuss diagnosis?

This is by far the best doctor and team up front (clerks, phones, etc) that I've EVER had. I'm so impressed with Dr. Herder, who came recommended by another health professional. She has the right knowledge and temperament for me, and is exactly what I wanted and needed. A compassionate doctor who is relaxed, does her research and cares about my concerns. It's rare I'm this excited about medical care, but the entire team is outstanding with all aspects!

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.
