I must have seen Dr. Herschel 20 times in Nov./Dec. 2017. I had a severe infection and ulcer on my cornea and I literally felt like he blamed me for the fact that it took a long time for it to heal. He never, ever, once asked me how I felt or how much pain I was in. He spoke to me in a clinical manner and never as a doctor who really cared for me as a human being or one of his patients. The last time I saw him and asked about surgery to repair my scar tissue he said emphatically "I not going to touch your cornea" (with no explanation) and left the exam before I was done asking my questions. I've been told he is an excellent surgeon but his bedside manner is atrocious. At least it was with me.
