Specialties

Dr. Robin N Hermes has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Does nothing to diagnosis spine disorders

For years I saw Dr. Hermes for RFA. All Hermes does is reduce pain, nothing is done to diagnosis problems. I have spinal issues that are causing major deformity now, and years of treatment from SF Pain & Spine never diagnosed the problems causing the deformity. They never even try to diagnosis underlying issues, they make money on your increased disability. To make matters worse, when it was time for me to retire early, they refused to fill out any paperwork for insurances. for years they knew my increased disability was interfering with my ability to work, they made 10s of thousands of dollars treating my pain, but would allow my family to bankrupt when the undiagnosed underlying conditions finally disabled me completely. If you need pain relief these doctors are okay - if you want to prevent becoming a twisted up, broken, person these doctors will do nothing to help you.

Steroid injections are a gamble

Dr. Hermes was professional and personable. I had confidence in her knowledge of my chronic back pain. The steroid injections were painful but I had great hopes. I have had previous steroid injection that fixed the problem within 3 days and pain never returned. Local given wasn't helpful.

Very Pleased

I am shocked to read the 1 star reviews above because my experience has been that Dr. Hermes is very attentive, personable, and concerned about the options available for my back and leg pain. I have found her assistant to be very personable as well. I am not impressed with the front desk receptionist, however. She seems not only inattentive, but forgetful and I'm not sure how long I would have sat there if I hadn't reminded her that I was the first appointment of the afternoon. Then, like an after thought, she wanted my insurance cards, ID, and gave me a long privacy policy brochure to read which I could have read during the time I had been waiting.

Shop elsewhere

Dr. Hermes used to be a better doctor than she is now. She spends minimal time and effort. I frequently had to correct what she thoughtr or recollection of what she did. She did not prepare for appointments in terms of refreshing her recollection beforehand. She seems very incapabable compared to her previous skil level, and much less thorough

more pain then before

This doctor is terrible, I went in for a spinal injection and was in much more pain afterwards! I called the office several times and was told to use Ice, and my pain was a 10!!! Asked the office to have her call me and they told me she was to busy! She has never called me to this day, and when I went in for my follow up appointment several weeks later the appointment had been cancelled! the office staff was so rude they got up and walked away from the desk, I couldn't believe the lack of care from this doctor and her staff !!! Still suffering in New Mexico!
