Ratings for Dr. Richard Herzog
Dr. Herzog missed my breast cancer. Correct. Missed my breast cancer. I felt a lump and he didn't. He didn't order any tests, but told me to wait a month and get a mammogram and sonogram as it was probably cystic. What??!! Even if he didn't feel a lump, an MRI or sonogram should've been done immediately. When finally diagnosed two months later, I had late stage breast cancer. Knowing what I know now, a very different path should have been taken. It is shameful. And likely this dismissive attitude will ultimately cost me my life.
Dr Herzog and his entire staff are truly dedicated to what they do. The office staff works extremely hard. Five phone lines ring off the hook all day. I asked how many!! Their office is extremely busy! I take this to be a great sign of others loving them too. Although you DO have to wait for your appt (I think this is due to the many emergengies that need to be fit in each day). When you see him in a room he gives you his undivided attention. He is an EXTREMELY competent Dr in every way. I trust him very much! You DO need to be patient and realize there are many others who need his time and attention each day also. He works many long hours to try to make everyone safe and happy. He is compassionate and he understands my complaints. I rec him 100%, but remember, He's a busy guy!!!
I loved my experience with Dr. Herzog. He was very caring, supportive and patient with all my concerns. He delivered my second child via c-section. I had a horrible experience with another practice that delivered my first child who had no bed side manners and was very dismissive. I was very depressed after delivering my child for about 6 months and did not think I wanted more children as a result. Well, we did end up getting pregnant again and I wanted to make sure I had a great doctor whom I felt at ease with. That was Dr. Herzog. Every time I saw Dr. Herzog I told him how scared and apprehensive I was due to my first pregnancy and the delivery and he provided a lot of emotional support. He talked me through everything at each visit and I never felt rushed, ever. I am confused by those that feel that he has no bed side manners or otherwise had a negative experience... but everyone has their opinion and own experiences. I would recommend Dr. Herzog in a heart beat.
Honestly you have to be open for dr herzog. He is a n amazing doctor with a very big humor. He had delivered my first child which was an emergency c section and he made me feel so comfortable. It was an amazong ecperience and hes been a family doctor for years upon years. I am pregnant woth my second child and have already scheduled my c section with him. I love noethshore o bgyn. I wont go anywhere else.
One of the worst bed side manners of any doctor I have come into contact with. I called his emergency line and he asked me "if this was really an emergency" and said that I woke him up and to please stop calling his emergency service. Really? And to top it off, the I had to call back 3 times because he never called in the prescription that he said he would. I wanted to make sure he had the correct phone # and he wouldn't even let me get passed the area code and said "i have the #...please stop calling my service." I hope no one else ever has to deal with him.
AMAZING DOCTOR. He was supportive, by my side throughout my whole birthing experience. i had to go in for an emergency c-section and he made me feel vey confident and very relaxed through out the whole process. He is awesome. and the office is great. They are the only ones i trust with my life during labor etc.
I had the worst experience with dr. Herzog!! He made my husband n I worried about the pregnancy when everything was going fine. He told us I'd have to get a c section 3 weeks before my due date! The whole time I was in labor he never once checked on me to see how I was doing n he almost missed my daughter's birth. I had her naturally without the epidural n any pain meds, the way I wanted to give birth. He was very unsupportive n the staff was rude!! I will never go back!!
Dr. Herzog delivered by first child and he was very competent, confident and helpful during my delivery. He even went out of his way to stay with me as his shift was over. All office visits with the various Dr's were pleasant & helpul. Looking back I realize I always left with tidbits of info that were useful- as a first time mom u may not always be prepared with the right questions at the time of your visit- all the Dr's in this practice offered good info up front. I'm pregnant now but have moved out of NY, so I've been through 2 different group practices and they are nothing like North Shore OB GY. The office hours were also great- back then they were opened until 9pm! I highly recomend this group practice.
