He is one of the best. Since being told that I had cancer, he was right there for me. Then, when it came back, he was there along with his whole staff. I would recommend him to other people. – C.B., February 2021
Dr. Herms and his entire staff are awesome. They don't treat you like a patient, but as a friend. They are extremely nice and helpful. You will come out of Dr. Herms' office very well informed. A friend recommended him to me. I am from northern Kentucky, and I'm happy to drive the extra hour. I recommend him very highly. Thank you to the entire staff!!!!! – B.C., February 2021
I feel I'm in good hands with OHC. They patiently answer all my questions and concerns. When a problem arises outside of office hours, there are multiple ways to contact them for assistance, and they are very quick to respond. They care about their patients, and work hard to improve their services even when faced with tough challenges such as the COVID-19 restrictions impacting their day to day operation. Any situation that has come up has been quickly and competently addressed. I would rather not need any oncology care, but since I do, I am grateful to have the staff of OHC giving me the best care possible. Dr. Herms is the best, in my opinion. He patiently explains everything and answers my questions clearly so I walk out of his office knowing what's going on. I am confident in his decisions about what is best for my situation. – G.T., February 2021
