Specialties

Dr. David C Herz has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Terrible experience

If I could leave less than one star, I would. He honestly is incapable of showing any compassion. A pediatrician should be fun and actually like kids. He however was very depressing. It was like I was watching my son be seen by eeyore. He was very monotone, did not interact well with my 2 month old and the appointment seemed very rushed. He made my husband and I both feel very uncomfortable. He would be better suited working in a morgue rather than with children

A Pediatrician We Can Trust

A family friend who is a physician recommended Dr. Herz to us several years ago for our daughter. We have been very happy with Dr. Herz. He is very knowledgeable and takes a personal interest in our daughter. He calls us on his day off to give us lab results. He is very professional and is great at what he does. We would not trust anyone else if our daughter had a serious illness.

Our kids love Dr. Herz.

Dr. Herz was the first pediatrician to see my daughter in the hospital when she was born. Ever since then, we have brought our kids to him. We moved somewhat out of the area, and nowwe have to drive 30 miles to see him, but we think it is worth the time because we really trust what he tells us.He treats us like friends, not just patients. My children feel very comfortable with him because they know that he really cares about them and I agree. I would never trust my children with another doctor.

Great diagnosis!!!

We had been to 2 other pediatricians without an accurate dignosis for our newborn. I was thankful that I finally found a doctor that could give us the right diagnosis!! Sine Dr. Herz has an additional specialty in the care of newborns,besides pediatrics,he easily came to the correct conclusion for our newborn daughter. Additionally, his office got us in for an appointment right away, and we waited only a few minutes in his office. Anyone with a newborn (or any other child)will appreciate this! He also called us backto follow up on a lab test.

Dr. Herz is a very good pediatrician.

I have brought my grandchildren to Dr. Herz for the last five years. Their parents both work, so when the kids are sick, we babysit them and take them to the doctor. Dr. Herz is very caring and very thorough. We know that he truly cares about the health of his patients. His office is very good at giving us same day appointments for illnesses. He calls us to find out if the kids are improving. We are very happy with him.
