Mark O. Herring, MD | Neurologist
Thoughtful and caring, Dr. Mark Herring enjoys getting to know his patients and treasures the long-term physician-patient relationships that develop with those who have chronic neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, migraines, Parkinson’s, strokes and dementia.
As a “migrainer” himself, and having had several spine operations over the years, he can relate well with patients who experience pain and discomfort. As a general neurologist and natural problem-solver, he’s an expert at diagnosing and treating the full scope of neurological issues.
“I enjoy visiting with all my patients,” he says. “I really care about them, and I feel fortunate to practice alongside my partners—people who are truly compassionate in the care they provide.”
Dr. Herring is the former chief of medicine at McKenzie-Willamette Hospital, where he was also stroke director, served on the physicians’ leadership group, and was chair of the medical ethics committee. He has been practicing neurology since 1986.
When he’s not seeing patients, he spends time on the McKenzie River, fly fishing. He also enjoys hiking the Southern Sierras and playing tin whistle Irish echo music. He also volunteers for White Bird Clinic during the Oregon Country Fair.
