Guthrie Patient: October 2018

Dr Lee is an awesome doctor ! Very professional and very competent, he has very good knowledge about his profession and is very concerned about his patient. I would definitely recommend him to others.

This was my pre op appointment for surgery. The surgeon gave me a prescription for pain pills but it was only for a few days after a major surgery. I ended up needing more and he wouldn't prescribe them due to the opioid crisis issue. I understand they need to watch how many they prescribe but they also need to take into account the individual situation when having major surgery. I ended up having to use a non narcotic prescription pain medicine I had at home. I will definitely have a conversation with physicians going forward about their view on pain control and take that into consideration when choosing where to have a procedure.

I always have a wonderful experience with Dr. Herbst. Always makes me feel comfortable and doesn't make me feel rushed.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Dr Herbst was great at explaining how the practice has integrated and what to expect moving forward. He asked about how things were going and I expressed a few items of concern but he did not give a response or suggest any way to improve upon concerns. Also, at the beginning of pregnancy I had spotting, I called the office and lab work was done. no one followed up with me, I called and then additional testing was ordered with fairly serious concerns which were not followed up on. I finally emailed a midwife and was given follow-up.

My regular OB retired in 2014 and I have since been searching for a new one, I finally found him. Dr.Herbst. He is well worth the 2 hour drive
Guthrie Patient: March 2018
Lee is wonderful and addressed all my questions
Guthrie Patient: February 2018
If *Dr. Herbst left the Guthrie I would most likely follow him to a new practice. They just don't come any better than him!!
Guthrie Patient: October 2017
Dr. Herbst was great - some of these questions are not applicable to my consultation with him - but I rated him well anyway.
