CURRENT (2013) BRIEF BIO:

Dr. Herrera is a board-certified neurologist who has been employed in private practice of adult neurology in Hilo, Hawaii since 2010, under the auspices of Hilo Medical Center. Born and raised in Illinois, Dr. Herrera graduated from University of Chicago’s medical school in 1982, served as an intern in Massachusetts at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and did neurology residency followed by fellowship at the University of California, San Diego and the University of Colorado in Denver.

During the period between his neurology residency and private practice, Bill worked extensively as a research fellow in multiple sclerosis and rehabilitation at the University of Colorado, including a stint as clinical research director for the Rocky Mountain MS Center from 1988 through 1990. Since then, Dr. Herrera worked continuously as an adult clinical neurologist in private practice in several cities of Colorado’s Front Range area before he moved his practice to Hilo, Hawai’i, in 2010.

When not in his office or at the Medical Center in Hilo, Bill lives with Maryruth and two dogs just north of Hilo. They are “empty nesters,” with four children in their twenties who live on the mainland. Bill currently enjoys scuba diving, web (not water) surfing, and tropical gardening.
