"We absolutely love Dr. Fay and Dr. Herman! They delivered our twins and are wonderful. Awesome bedside manner, extremely caring, and they actually listen to your concerns. They made me feel very confident about having our babies and after my c-section I had hardly any pain. My first c-section had been done in Michigan in 2008 and it took months to recuperate. I was up and walking around by day 2 after Dr. Fay and Herman operated and dancing with our oldest daughter after one week. ?"
"Dr. Fay was great at answering questions and helping me be informed. She has a great bedside manner and took excellent care of me through every step of the way! Thank you!"
"I love Dr. Lauren Hermann! I am very particular when it comes to medical care. She and Dr. Faye treated me prior to pregnancy for hormone related issues. I was on birth control for 5 years to help with this issue without much improvement before Dr. Hermann became my doctor. I had cystic acne, severe abdominal pain, long, painful, heavy menstrual cycles, crazy mood swings, depression, poly cysts, eczema, gray hair at 15 years old, psychological issues, and more. My hormones tested with in healthy ranges every time. After a couple of years of her monitoring me, I found out it was a dietary intolerance to cows milk and gluten. She was so ecstatic to hear I had found relief in all of the above as well as my vision improved, I required less sleep and felt more rested, my asthma disappeared, I no longer visited the ER monthly due to pain, etc. She is compassionate, hilarious, and highly intelligent. I trust her completely. The staff and nurses at this location are very thorough, attentive, and compassionate as well. The front desk girl knows me by first name as soon as I walk in the door and greets me with a big smile every time. They are very good a keeping me well informed and up to date. Everyone has a professional attitude with a pleasant demeanor. They are clearly very busy but I never feel rushed or that my concerns are put to the side. The facility is quite spiffy as well. I live in San Marcos and there is a closer facility that I used to go to and they are great but I prefer this one. Dr. Hermann goes to both."
"The offices Address has changed, I did go to the old facility at 1583 Common Street. After calling I learned they have a new office located at 1305 Wonder World Dr # 209, San Marcos, TX 78666.The staff was very helpful and forgiving of my tardiness however It would have been nice if the information within ZocDoc was accurate."
