I feel that Dr Heres and his staff work well together and are on top of all my health issues

October 24, 2017

I had an amazingly good experience getting my first pain shot from Dr. Heres. He and his staff were incredibly friendly and caring. They couldn't have been nicer or have made me feel more comfortable.

October 24, 2017

Dr. Heres & staff are very pleasant & professional

October 19, 2017

I was impressed. This is the first time I saw this physician. I did not know what to expect. He made me feel comfortable

October 17, 2017

Entire process was quick and efficient, without being rushed. So, I had time to ask questions, but we didn't waste time, either.

October 17, 2017

The only bad thing I can say is the extent of the visit. It was so busy that we were there at least an hour after our appointed time till we were treated.

September 28, 2017

The staff were very professional. Dr. Herres is a very good doctor.

September 19, 2017

Dr. Heres is an excellent doctor. Gave me a nerve block and all my pain went away

September 14, 2017

I was terrified to be going to a pain management doctor. Dr. Heres and his staff immediately alleviated all of my concerns and expressed empathy for my condition. They immediately set a course of action that I feel very comfortable with. I'm grateful to be in their hands.

September 14, 2017

Dr. Heres is smart, steady handed, and experienced. He made me feel safe the entire time during a relatively uncomfortable procedure.
