I went to Dr. Herman as a referral from friend. I needed a second opinion regarding cataract surgery. The other company, KE Surgical Center, made me feel very uneasy about the surgery...I didn't know what I didn't know. It was akin to a vacation rental sales pitch.... On the other hand, Dr. Herman, spent enough time with me to explain the state of my eye using actual digital photos of my eye while he pointed out the states of each part of my eye. He gave me options along with detailed explanations. I could see the state of my eyes and his recommendations. I am definitely a new long time patient with Dr. Herman. His knowledge translated into layman's terms, was excellent!
