Listens and doesn't make me feel rushed. My only complaint has to do with the billing office which is not located in the doctor's office. The billing office is terrible. They constantly make mistakes and it is a nightmare to try and get problems resolved. Everyone I know has had problems with the billing dept. and that is the only reason I might change doctors to one that is not affiliated with MUSC. It certainly would not be because of Dr. Herber. I think he is an excellent doctor.

Dr. Richard Herber has been my family Doctor for over 10 years now. He is the only Doctor I've ever had who called my house when I had a change of medication to see how I was doing. My wife and son also have been under his care during this time and he has always gone the extra mile with us. I have always found Doctor Herber and his staff to conduct themselves with the utmost professionalism. I would gladly refer this Doctor to anyone seeking a family Physician.
