About the Co-Founders

Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Margo Herron and her husband Eric Herron.

The Elizabeth Institute was founded by reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon Margo Herron and her husband Eric. The institute was named in tribute to Dr. Herron’s mother, Mary Elizabeth, a caring and compassionate woman who was deeply involved in philanthropy and community involvement. The Herron’s wish for their practice to be representative of those same characteristics.

When not assisting patients Eric and Margo enjoy spending time outdoors with their son Max and daughter Eve. In particular they love to cycle, hike and take Max on runs through the park and the communities of Ashland.

Eric’s desire is to create a welcoming office for patients, where they feel truly cared for. In building their practice he has taken every measure possible to create a convenient process for patients.
