Specialties

Dr. John S Hergenrother has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Amazing

I have seen many doctors throughout my life, and Dr. Hergenrother is among one of the most thorough and polite doctors I have come across. He spent time with me without making me feel rushed, called another doctor while I was right there in the office with him to ensure the correct information was being relayed. He seems to geniunely care about his patients, and he is so friendly and polite. I truly appreciate his frank discussions as well--he was the only doctor who told me flat out what my diagnosis was, when all the other doctors simply wanted to tiptoe around the issue and not give me answers. He is a fantastic doctor, and I am all too happy to give him my copay each time I visit :)

Wonderful practitioner

At the recommendation of a friend, I took my father from the Chicago area to see Dr. Hergenrother in Ohio. He immediately put my very scared and nervous father at ease with his smile, calm demeanor and even a silly joke about a frog. It was just what my dad needed. Beyond that, he was kind, courteous, prompt, an excellent listener and took wonderful care of my father. He was definitely worth the drive.
