from Thomas in SC March 23, 2017 for James R. Herman, MD

My orthopedic surgeon had cancelled my knee surgery due to a concern about my condition.

Dr Herman picked up the phone while I was in his office during an exam and intervened with the other doctor on my behalf.

I was very impressed with Dr Herman's sense of urgency and his ability to to intervene for me as my advocate.

Dr. Herman is like a member of the family as my parents went to him and I have been going to him since he started his practice. He is gentle, kind, and has a great sense of humor. He truly cares about our wellbeing and goes to great lengths to cure what ails us! He is one VERY smart Doctor and I have told 5 or 6 of our friends about him and they are now patients of his.

from Carmen in SC February 20, 2014 for James R. Herman, MD

My father has lived 5 years with liver cancer because Dr. Herman found it early. I owe my father's life to him. Now that the cancer has returned, he is compassionate and caring. I don't know what I would do without him in this terrible time in my life.

from Terri in SC February 19, 2014 for James R. Herman, MD

I have been a patient with Dr. Herman for several years . He is always very informative and concerned about his patient. Listens to our questions, never in a hurry and spends time with his patient to answer any concerns we may have about our health. Very pleasant. If emergency, has always responded in a timely manner rather by phone or works you in to be seen at the office. I am grateful to… See more

from Patsy in SC February 17, 2014 for James R. Herman, MD

Dr Herman is thoughtful and caring. He provides excellent patient care to me and is far superior to other physicians.

from ALICE in SC February 14, 2014 for James R. Herman, MD

WE SHARE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PATIENT AND DOCTOR. HE TAKES THE TIME WITH ME TO LISTEN TO MY PROBLEMS . HE DOESN'T RUSH THROUGH MY APPOINTMENTS.
HE IS A GREAT DOCTOR AND I AM GLAD I CHOOSE TO STAY WITH HIM.

from Sharon May 14, 2012 for James R. Herman, MD

Dr. Herman has been my internist for the past fourteen years and I am grateful to be a patient in his practice. Dr. Herman has a wonderful sense of humor, an easy manner, and always makes you feel comfortable discussing any topic or answering lists of queries. On January 10, 2012 I was not well and Dr. Herman immediately told my husband to bring me to his office where he treated me with… See more
