Testimonials from patients of Dr. Herman

from Nancy in SC March 12, 2020 for James R. Herman, MD

On December 13, 1992, my husband Wayne was not feeling well. We had been in the process of moving to a new house, and I figured it was the beginning of the flu or exhaustion from trying to move and work. At 1 a.m., he woke up, went to the bathroom, passed a lot of blood and fainted. I called 911 first so the ambulance was on the way, and then I called Dr. Herman at home (who does that in… See more

from Paula in SC March 12, 2020 for James R. Herman, MD

Dr. Herman Is deeply attentive and caring with his patients. He’s thorough and embodies the best of MDVIP. (Besides that, he likes a good joke.) Once I had an unusual problem on a Friday when he was out of town. I went to an Urgent Care center. When he found out from the office manager that I had called, he called me back - from California! He tried to help me and even did some… See more

Several times in the past, Dr James Herman has called other provider practices and helped me get connected.
One, he arranged for a knee surgery when the surgeon was unwilling to operate for a year, I got my knee replacement almost immediately.

On another occasion Dr Herman secured an appointment for a Colonoscopy when I was facing a long wait.

It is very important for me… See more

from Ben in SC February 28, 2020 for James R. Herman, MD

Thank you for all that you did when i first meet you in that office on that Thursday afternoon at 5:15. I had had such bad luck with physicians in Orangeburg with trying to figure out what was wrong with my health. I turned the corner that day and I so thankful for that change. The staff is great and easy to deal with as well.

from Jerome (Jerry) in SC March 15, 2018 for James R. Herman, MD

Dr. Herman, Ill never forget that afternoon in September 2017 when I wasnt even your patient and came into your office after hours with Meda. You realized that I was at low ebb and immediately went into action, extending your work day, examining me thoroughly, pre-diagnosing my blood clots, and immediately putting me on anticoagulants. Of course, subsequent tests confirmed your suspicions and… See more

from Thomas 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.

from William in SC March 10, 2014 for James R. Herman, MD

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.

I feel Dr. Herman is a caring doctor. I first started with him in the early 1990s and have been with him since. He is our family doctor. He is a family man. He goes beyond to insure that you have been given the attention needed for medical services. While he has been constantly after me by my excess weight I have not accomplished the goals he has recommended. However, I know he has… See more
