No one likes going to the Gyno. I personally have put it off for almost a year since my last OBGYN was horrid. From visit one Dr. Hering listened and understood my frustrations with my last Dr and also explained things to me theroughly and in ways I could understand. For almost 4 years I have been in pain and was not being listened to and he was the first to actually give me something tangable from day 1 as a potential cause/solution. And yes I know it will be different for every woman but the fact that he listened to me it wasn't as frustrating as I thought it was going to be he made it as easy as possible for me. For someone who has had a bad run with providers I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hering for his genuine care and his ability to listen and convey the plan of treatment and reasons why. I am extremely happy with this hospital and every employee I have met thus far.

It was my first time seeing this doctor, and he was filling in for my usual OB-GYN. Though he was friendly, it was clear to me that he did not read my chart fully and made comments that did not align with what my usual doctor and I have discussed throughout my pregnancy. I left the appointment feeling confused by what he had said about my baby and his suggestions.
