Dr Hertle is both a gifted surgeon and caring physician. He genuinely cares about the patient, their eyesight and is comfortingly confident. I highly recommend Dr Hertle and his staff for any eye problems. Thanks Dr Hertle for fixing my eyes!

My son has ocular albinism which includes nystagmus. We visited several "top" pediatric opthamologists in Atlanta. Even though most were kind none gave us any hope that there was anything to improve my son's vision, which at four years old was 20/200. I specifically asked them if there were any studies being done and was told no. Thankfully, a teacher at the Center for the Visually Impaired in Atlanta told me about Dr. Hertle's work. Dr. Hertle did surgery on my son and put him in contacts. My son is 15. His acuity is 20/60. He is driving. My son's life was changed by Dr. Hertle. Our family is forever greatful.

I can say that Dr. Hertle changed my son's life and my family's life but that would be an understatement. My son's eye will never be the same because of Dr. Hertle. His surgery was January of 2010. I'm sure he remembers my son for this surgery also impacted Dr. Hertle greatly.

He diagnosed and treated my nystagmous after 67 years of opthamologists failing to diagnose, failing to understand, and being unable to undertake or recommend any helpful approach. I came away knowing more about nystagmous than nearly all opthamologists, and with very significantly improved vision. I wrote a paper about it: My New Eyes.

Dr. Hertle has been my son's nystagmus doctor since he was a baby. He is one of the top doctors our country has. Without him we would have been so lost. My son is almost seven now.

As far as we are concerned, there is NO other eye doctor then Dr. Hertle. His knowedge and caring helped my son to live a much more normal life then if we would not have seen Dr. Hertle. He was the first doctor that my autistic son would let examine without a fight. He was excellent both times my son had surgery. His kindness and caring of his patients is like no other.

Dr. Hertle is a very special physican. He is always willing to go the extra mile for his patients. My daughter has been his patient since she was 4 months old. He has always handled her with respect, care and understanding. He is always up for a challenge and when he isn't sure of the answer he gets help from colleagues and other staff members. Any one who is suffering with Glaucoma, or any other eye disorder are in wonderful hands with Dr. Hertle.
