Herbel cares for adults and adolescents generally over the age of 18, although she will accept younger patients on a case-by-case basis when appropriate.

She is one of the endocrinologists practicing in Kansas who uses the insulin pump in both acute and ambulatory care.

Herbel is accepting new patients. Her office phone number is 316-283-7200.
