For the past year I have been dealing with terrible neck pain. I have had several injections in my neck and it seemed like the problem was worsening. I decided to try Dr. Herman because he is board certified in orthopedics. This ended up being a great decision. After just a few visits, my quality of life improved greatly and I could get back to doing the activities I loved. As I sit here today, I’m blessed to say for the first time in over a year, I am pain free! Therefore,if you are in pain, give him a call!

I went for neck pain and they got me in the day of! The receptionist was so nice when I called, Certainly the best service I've ever had at a doctor's office. Then when I got there the doctor was so friendly and he was so genuine while listening. I am a student and can't afford X-rays and he was so understanding too! Great, quality service! As a result, I would highly recommend.

Dr. Bob has been a miracle worker for me. I spent two years of my life suffering from terrible headaches. Therefore I couldn't get out of bed some days. I saw multiple neurologists and tried several different medications without seeing and improvements. In addition, I was even placed on bed rest at one point in time. With Dr. Bob's help I can now say I'm no longer on any medication and headache free for several months. Dr.Bob gave me my life back.

Dr. Hermann is the best. I lived in Chicagoland for 26 years before coming back home to Central Illinois. No one I saw up there had half the talent or bedside manner of this man. Bloomington has a rare chiropractic talent in his practice. I wish him much success for many years to come, hope he never leaves B/N, and will always be my chiropractor. If only I had a GP as good as him.

Recently began getting my chiropractic care here. I've been able to get in to see "Dr. Bob" on the same day that I've called for an appointment, which is a key factor when experiencing neck/back pain. The results have been immediate!
