I appreciated Dr. Herrera's ability to speak to a patient in layperson's terms. Ordinarily, I would expect a specialist of his caliber to have a snooty attitude, but this is not at all the case with Dr. Herrera. Although he is a consummate professional, he has an easygoing demeanor. This comes across loud and clear as evidence of his concern for his patients. I am now two months out of a hip labrum repair arthroscopic procedure, and I can say that I am glad to have chosen Dr. Herrera as my surgeon. Recovery was a breeze.
Reading the other comments made m what to send my own critique. I have had several appts with Dr.Herreras Office. Only once was the wait extraordinarly long, however it was a holiday week and I was fit into the schedule last minute following my MRI. Parking was costly but then again is that his choice? The Kendall office is free parking. I was there to see the physician and as far as that goes my expierience was brillant. He was informative, sympathetic and took his time with me. I am happy to give him two thumbs up. Deal with your lack of patience and he was worth it.
I fell and fractured my right shoulder. When I went to he ER and had it xrayed, it was found that I had to have a replacement. Dr. Herrera was completely honest about my recovery. He was so caring. My office visits have been the same. I would recommend him completely.He is a wonderful human being - all doctors should be so kind and capable.
