We love Dr. Herlihy. She is my child's favorite doctor of all time. We met her in 2009. My daughter has had two surgeries and yearly checkups from her. Savannah looks forward to seeing her and Jenny.

Our doctor told us about her and from the very first visit till present we knew she was a nice compassion person, who took the time to talk with the parents and the child. Her Assistants are all nice and supportive and understanding.
