Dr. Herres and his PA, Nurse and office staff were very kind and caring and reassuring. They went above and beyond to calm my nervousness and it was greatly appreciated.

July 02, 2018

Dr. Heres cared about the pain I had been suffering and offered help. I was scared and nervous because I never had this kind of procedure. Both Dr. Heres and his staff were very nice, talked me through everything they were doing and made me feel like I could relax and trust the procedure.

June 29, 2018

I really like Dr. Heres. He is very caring and walks you through the procedure checking to make sure the patient is ok. Excellent mannerism.

June 25, 2018

they understand my case and we all were on the same level

June 21, 2018

I have chronic back pain and the onus of my care is on me. As a consequence I often have questions for the doctors I visit. Dr. Heres was not only unwilling to answer my questions, but was downright uncivil to me. Obviously I won't be going back.

June 21, 2018

Doctor is very with good. He made me feel very comfortable. Listened very closely to my questions and ask me questions in return . This doctor allowed enough time on my appointment to remedied my painful problem the same day, without needing a second appointment

June 11, 2018

he briefly talked with me and said he would develop a plan to help me, then he and another doctor or student left the room and the doctor never returned!

June 11, 2018

This was a follow-up visit after spinal stenosis medication 5/11/18. Worsening pain caused additional medication and a prescription for an MRI if pain is not alleviated. I am confident that Dr. Heres is committed assisting me with my pain issues.

June 05, 2018

I only have good things to say about my visit and the help I was given
