Dr. Herzog is a fantastic surgeon who performed a spinal fusion on my lower back and because of his skill and expertise I am pain free for the first time in over 35 years.

He did surgery, removing 2 collapsed discs and replacing it with cadaver bone and putting a metal plate and screws in. That was done in 2012 and today I spend every day of my life in chronic pain living in her car pain meds. I have a back to him a couple times for help and he will not help me. As for his bedside manner, it's the worst I have ever seen.

Had spinal fusion L5S1 , three months out, Dr.Herzog and his assistant Rick were very pleasant, spent a lot of time speaking to myself and my husband, so far so good, still healing but liked both very much.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Herzog. I ended up having back surgery, and for the first time in many years I am pain free. He took a lot of time to explain the surgery to me, and I felt comfortable with him and I am so very happy with the outcome. My experience at Saratoga Hospital was also wonderful. His office staff was always very pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend.

After a lifetime of pain due to degenerative scoliosis, i was sent to Herzog for surgery a year ago. He advised me to get my affairs in order over the next year and call him when i was ready for this massive surgery. Now that I'm ready and packed up my apartment ready to move in my daughter's home to recover he doesn't want to do it! I think its due to my poor insurance. He is an awful person and should have referred me to someone who cared and not so money hungry.

Completely ridiculous, I had a fusion over a yr ago that did not fuse, now my corrective surgery was schedule and four dys prior to the day of surgery I got a call canceling my procedure due to a body piercing That needed to be removed, was told they needed to the wound to heal first but the lady said TO NO REMOVE THE PIERCING. Makes no sense and was given no reschedule date, so I'm left with a bad fusion at 32 yrs old that keeps me locked in my home not being able to get around so well. This is terrible to play with a persons life, like I don't want to go back to work or do things with my kids over the summer.

I have been dealing with severe lower back pain for 6 + months while training for a half marathon. I wasn't sure what the pain was attributed to, but thought that staying active wouldn't be the worst idea. He strolled in the door and the first thing he said "so, are you still training?" with an arrogance to his voice. I told him "no," I haven't been out running in two months. He started spewing out information on what I should do (mind you he didn't even have my MRI, just the results since my orthopedic did not send it over or with me). He looked at me and said "so, 4-6 weeks of physical therapy and then surgery if it isn't better." I told him in shock "I'm only 30." He looked at me and said "and...do you have any other suggestions?" At this point I was in tears. He then said to me that he was going to give me tramadol, a pain killer which he himself had taken until it was labeled a narcotic, now he's too "holy" for that. I've never felt so insulted in my life. I will NOT be going back.
