Specialties

Dr. Ronald B Herrington has the following 2 specialties

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

  • 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.

RUDE!

This man is incredibly rude and a pathetic excuse for a Doctor. I went to the EMERGENCY room and was told by this man that I smelled like a dog and my mom smelled like smoke (which I don't really care about that part because she does). First off, what does it matter? I wasn't there to be SMELLED, I was there for EMERGENCY treatment. For him to point out how I smelled and my mother was incredibly unprofessional. I do own a dog that I love very dearly, is he jealous and miserable? Is he proud hat he knows what his nose is used for? This same doctor, I went in for a physical about a month ago. For a physical, he looked in my ears and checked my heart, nothing else. He also gave me a prescription for a medication that I did not need whatsoever. He pointed out the obvious fact that I had allergies like it was something he discovered during this so-called physical, look at the form genius. This man is an awful doctor, very unprofessional, and I will never ever go to the Lakeland Hospital again. I would rather drive an hour away if I was bleeding to death, then see this man again. The only plus side; the staff was very friendly. Everyone was but him. I did get a good diagnosis, but that had nothing do with him. The nurses were amazing. All he did was point out how I smelled and checked my heartbeat. I'm also pretty sure he was not putting the stethoscope in the right spot, if you know what I mean. Sick, disgusting, pathetic, HUGE, unprofessional, rude, and just a terrible person all around. I really wish I could give zero stars on the beside manner..
