My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The mission of my practice is to provide comprehensive, personalized primary care to our patients by functioning as a hardworking, cooperative team driven by professionalism, compassion, integrity and respect for our patients and each other. We strive to promote healing, aid in health maintenance and assist with monitoring chronic disease in compliance with the most up-to-date medical guidelines in a considerate, friendly and dignified manner. 

Being trained in family medicine in the 1980s and taking advantage of the many tools we have available in the 21st century, I feel I am able to accomplish this mission for each of my patients in the most professional and individualized way possible.

As a personal physician, I see a limited number of patients to allow for unhurried and relaxed visits that are available weekdays, including early-morning and early-evening appointments, with little or no waiting when you arrive at the office. Same-day or next-day appointments are available for urgent problems on weekdays, and I make house calls when necessary. For urgent needs after hours, I can be contacted on my cell phone.

My primary care practice, often compared to a concierge practice, includes a strong emphasis on preventive medicine and screening to prevent, detect and better manage chronic conditions including diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart and lung disease, among other problems.  I am also a provider of the BaleDoneen® Method for cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment.

Having over 30 years of experience as a family medicine physician, I have expertise in most areas of primary care including internal medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, dermatology, routine gynecology, gastroenterology and minor office-based skin surgeries. I am also credentialed to perform colonoscopies for colon cancer screening and prevention.  

My practice is based in the South Towns with the majority of my patients residing in Hamburg, Lakeview, Orchard Park, East Aurora, Derby, Angola, Eden, Springville and West Seneca, but patients from all over Western New York, from Amherst and Tonawanda to Ellicottville, have joined my practice.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Herman

We have had numerous times where we needed to contact Dr. Herman either through his office or personal cell phone. We have always been able to speak to him and received all the information we needed immediately or within a few hours depending on our requests.

from Robert in NY March 11, 2020 for Steven P. Herman, MD

Had a serious medical issue while out of area in Fla for winter months. Contacted Dr Herman's office and he diagnosed my problem and sent medication to my Fla pharmacy which alleviated my problems. He was very prompt and professional with his response and I was very satisfied that I was his patient and enrolled in MDVIP program.

from Glen in NY March 13, 2018 for Steven P. Herman, MD

Dr. Herman,
You're doing a great job. Since switching to mdvip my wait time during office visits has basically been cut to zero, the only problem with that is I don't get near enough reading done. Health-care has been excellent, keep up the good work. Your staff is more than friendly, efficient, and helpful. I actually look forward to my appointments.

from Marilyn in NY March 9, 2018 for Steven P. Herman, MD

Dr. Herman has been there whenever I have had questions and has directed me on how to live a healthier life style. Before my surgery, he was there to direct me to physical therapy before the surgery so that my recovery would be easier and I am thankful that I followed his directions as it indeed helped me get back to my life faster and stronger.

from Marvin in NY March 9, 2018 for Steven P. Herman, MD

Dr. Herman was there for me every step of the way with my heart issues. Coordinating the cardiologist at the hospital with my cardiologist who was out of town and also working with all the other doctors involved with my treatment.
It was because of his help that my cardiologist was kept informed and has since worked both with me and Dr. Herman to follow up on my treatment.

from Marilyn in NY March 9, 2018 for Steven P. Herman, MD

No matter when I have needed to speak to Dr. Herman, he has been available.
My friends have problems reaching their doctors because they are out of town, it is after office hours or on the weekend. They have been scared and frustrated not knowing what to do. Being able to reach Dr. Herman no matter what day or time of day is a wonderful and safe feeling
