Guthrie Patient: January 2020
Herbst is exceptional. he even makes my husband feel comfortable. we only see each other once per year, but he knows me; recalls my children, inquired about my career. He is caring and sincere.

Wonderful MD
Guthrie Patient: November 2019
Dr. Herbst is by far the best Dr. we have seen at Guthrie. his genuine concern for the patients concerns and willingness to listen was very reassuring. we have felt our concerns and questions were brushed off or not taken seriously by every other Dr we have seen at Guthrie. Dr. Herbst has been like a breath of fresh air and a sign of relief after 9 months of nothing but issues and uncertainties.
Guthrie Patient: August 2019
I would highly recommend Dr. Herbst to anyone! He heard that my appointment had gotten rescheduled three times and was able to get me in the next day to see him. he was very friendly.
Guthrie Patient: August 2019
Dr. Herbst is very personable and puts me at ease. He is knowledgeable and so good at explaining things.
Guthrie Patient: August 2019
he basically tried pushing type of birth control when in fact told him I didn't want it due to multiple complaints abt it and he just ignored my worries and said he's the dr and had more experience with it and just blew off my opinion
Guthrie Patient: August 2019
Dr. Herbst had indicated last year that I may want to have a DEXA scan to determine if I may have osteoporosis. Although I had no family history of it, I took his advice and had the scan which showed I did have osteoporosis. Rarely having to see a doctor as I have been consistently healthy, I had not even considered it. Busy life too. Kudo to Dr. Herbst!
Guthrie Patient: August 2019
He was very nice, just felt extremely rushed like he was in a hurry to get out of there. Didn't explain much to me just pretty much said what was going to happen and left it at that. It was maybe a 5-7 minute visit when it definitely could've been longer.
Guthrie Patient: July 2019
dr Herbst is the best. he comes in with a smile and listens to you.
Guthrie Patient: May 2019
*Dr. Herbst has always been one of my favorite doctors due to his friendliness and the amount of time he takes to listen to your concerns & get to know you as a person & not just a person he has an appt. with. He puts you at ease.
