David Herrmann, MD
Practices at Springfield: Riverbend
Dr. David Herrmann joined Women’s Care in 2016. He has this to say:
“I love my profession. As the son of a labor-and-delivery nurse and an Ob/Gyn, I sometimes feel I was destined for this career. At just 4 years old, I started to tag along to the Lamaze classes my mom taught. Although I had no idea what all the he-he-whooo breath work was for, I put my all into the demonstrations. When running errands around town with my dad, we would often run into patients, and I felt proud at those moments of the lifelong connections he had made. As a physician now myself, I consider it to be the highest honor to have patients choose to entrust me with some of the most significant moments of their lives, from prenatal care and deliveries, to surgeries and annual exams.
I strive to connect with my patients, listen to their concerns and give them the time they need so they can make decisions to support their best health. I find that leaving my computer outside the exam room is the best way to do this.
As a husband and father of two young children, both born at RiverBend, I particularly relate to the excitement and joy that patients have as they begin or add to their families. If you enjoy a good dad joke, excessive cooing at babies and trading root beer float recipes, we will probably get along.”
