Guthrie Patient: February 2019
I want to be involved in the decisions regarding my care and feel that Dr Herbst did not listen to what I wanted. And when I disagreed he was quite unprofessional.

Guthrie Patient: October 2018
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.
