"My first impression of Dr Herron ( as we have only met once for my initial evaluation) was that he was very sincere, compassionate and well educated. My impression has not changed of him. The office staff there has been nothing but helpful and accomodating to me. Dr Herron took a long time describing the risks of the lap band surgery and lap rny, I have decided to go with the latter as a result of my meeting with him. I would rate him as great so far, I will come back after the surgery and update.I think that surgical competance and bedside manner are both critical for the patient to have a successful, pleasant, calm experience.
