Welcome

Dr. Gordon Herz

Hello and welcome to my location on the internet. I hope you find what you’re looking for! I am a licensed psychologist (Wisconsin, 1992) in independent practice. My specialties include neuropsychology and health and rehabilitation psychology. I work with individuals age 18 through older adult years, in individual, couples, family and small group formats. I am experienced in helping with a wide range of problems affecting a person’s mood, thinking and behavior, with emphasis on helping those living with pain and other physical health conditions in which stress and stress management play an important role. My specialties have included providing care to residents and consulting to staff in many skilled nursing and assisted living and community-based facilities in the Madison area. I have also provided memory improvement education and training to individuals and small groups. I have served as an expert in psychological- and neuropsychological-legal matters, have qualified as an expert in Dane County, Dodge County, and Sauk County Circuit Courts, and provide consultation to attorneys.

I am a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA), and former President of Division 42 (Psychologists in Independent Practice). I maintain Allied Health Professional privileges at UnityPoint Meriter Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital Madison. My current research and recent publication interests include the economics of health care and health care reform, particularly as these relate to access to behavioral health care, including mental health care in Medicare. My Google Scholar profile is here.


I’m pleased to report that on May 7, 2024 I was reappointed to the Medical Staff at St. Mary’s Hospital – Madison, with Status of Allied Health Professional, Specialty in Clinical Psychology, for a period of three years. Privileges approved include psychological consultation, psychological and neuropsychological testing for adolescents and adults, and individual, family, and group therapy.


I’m delighted to report I received an award for mentoring from Division 42 (Psychologists in Independent Practice) at the 2023 Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association. Text of the award is here.


Other than Medicare and The Alliance, I do not accept insurance for services. I will work with you to help you understand what your insurance may cover and reimburse you for services, and will provide you with a statement that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Your fee is due at the time of service. Please see my “No Surprises” policy.
