    Kendra is just the best. I followed her when she moved from Plainfield to HerMD, and I live in Terre Haute! She is very much worth the extra drive. She is exceptional at what she does, and has a warm and caring personality. I truly cannot say enough good things about Kendra. Y'all are lucky to have her on your team!

    The PA Suzi Cohen is amazing! I saw her for Botox and fillers and love my results. She is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to me and made me feel comfortable. She is a perfectionist and a master at her trade. If you want to feel younger and more confident go see Suzi!

    Laura has been my provider for years, and I was thrilled to follow her to HerMD. The space is gorgeous, front office staff is friendly and helpful, and Laura is incredibly caring and thorough during our appointments. I've never felt rushed, and have been able to get in touch via phone for questions. I highly recommend HerMD to anyone in the Nashville area.

    Michelle Wallace was PHENOMENAL- She listens, is so kind and provides honest yet caring feedback. I have never felt so comfortable with a healthcare provider and I truly felt like she took my concerns seriously. The facility was beautiful and the front desk staff were so accommodating when I had to reschedule my appointment. Leah (nurse) made me feel so comfortable, at ease and was so kind. Best of all, they take insurance! It feels so good to have such incredible care that is so accessible!
