Patient Ratings and Comments
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.

Although dr is very sweet and compassionate she mostly sits across the exam room nestled in behind a computer typing, and rarely approached me until she was to leave the room. She seems timid and unsure about recommending things to help me with my chronic pain.

[...] she barely touched me for a total of 15 min. - I did not feel she was very thorough in this YEARLY visit. [...] She did not tell me if I should continue on same dose of my meds I was taking. I had to ASK her questions about blood work she did not initiate.

Always in a rush and never seems to really have an answer. I realized after years of seeing dr herder that her service is hit and miss. Sometimes she's really in tune and looking for a solution however most frequently I leave disappointed feeling like I neither received an answer for my questions nor adequate help or attention paid to trying to find a solution. She is also easily influenced by my suggestion which is disappointing - I try to come in having done some research due to the constant feeling of being rushed however nearly every suggestion I make is met with a nodding head and a prescription. I expect a lot more and will be seeking another doctor.

I visited to discuss some symptoms, which I believe are related to a chronic condition which I am choosing to treat without medication. I wanted to make sure I wasn't mis-identifying the cause of the symptoms. I appreciate that my doctor heard me, and did not push me into tests and treatments I'm not interested in pursuing at this time, and she understood my reasons for avoiding these options. She seemed to understand that I've done my homework and allowed me to pursue the path I'd like to take. […]

Dr. Herder is always empathetic and seems to tailor her information given to the level of understanding that the patient has (my wife is also a patient and my wife and I have compared experiences). It is nice to have a GP that has some other patients with the same somewhat rare and much misunderstood medical issue that I have.

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!
