    Care provider spoke to us - not speaking while looking at screen - to me, that is important. His vocabulary was at my level... he ENCOURAGED any questions - Do not feel at all hesitant, if the genetics testing indicates the need for any family members to be seen in this office, to be supportive that they DO SO.

    Very brief interaction. Too brief to say much. I prefer someone who doesn't stand at the door leaning to go out instead of spending time with me.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 09/29/2023, Dr. Hershberger has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
