Dr. Steven Herman went above and beyond when I had a major situation with AFIB. Working directly with my surgeon and myself to assure that I received the best possible care. After my procedure there was another AFIB incident which is normal but Dr. Herman took all my calls no matter the time of day or night and worked with the surgeon to adjust my medications and to arrange treatment at the… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices. For urgent needs after hours, I can be contacted on my cell phone and I make house calls when necessary.
My primary care 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.

My husband and I were patients many years before he joined MDVIP. Since my husbands passing I have had some significant health and surgical issues and he has been very supportive and has had great follow up with any other Specialists in regard to my care. It is great to have time with him without being rushed . His office staff is also great and I feel that I am treated as an individual rather… See more
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
