Treating patients at these locations
Dr. James Herd is an obstetrician and gynecologist in Fort Worth. He was named a 2022 “Top Doctor” by Fort Worth Magazine.
Dr. Herd was raised in Fort Worth, attending Fort Worth Country Day before going on to Vanderbilt University. Dr. Herd received his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas and completed his residency in OB/GYN at the University of California Los Angeles. He then returned to Fort Worth to work alongside his father, a longtime OB/GYN. They worked together until the senior Dr. Herd retired in 2006.
“My desire to become a physician occurred at an early age, when I saw the joy that my father had as he practiced as an OB/GYN here in Fort Worth,” Dr. Herd explains.
Dr. Herd practices general obstetrics and gynecology, with a special interest in menopausal medicine and advanced operative laparoscopy and pelvic reconstructive surgery, including minimally invasive surgery for urinary incontinence. He also performs office-based hysteroscopic procedures for sterilization and endometrial ablation. Dr. Herd’s nurse has been with him for nearly 30 years and they both consider their patients to be part of their families.
“I enjoy all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology, from adolescent gynecology to taking care of pregnant ladies and deliveries, as well as annual exams throughout my patient’s lives,” Dr. Herd says. “I have had the privilege of caring for multiple generations of families; mothers and now their daughters are my valued patients.”
