Amanda Heckman is a wonderful person and very caring and knowledgeable. I have a fear of the doctor's office, but after this visit I feel a lot more comfortable about coming in when I need to. Amanda will be my primary care doctor for sure. I also like that she goes on a first name basis... it's very personable.

The PAC (?), was excellent. She kept explaining why she was asking certain questions which was great but unnecessary. I would definitely see her again. She was great!

Amanda listened to my surface complaints/concerns but dug deeper to make sure nothing was missed. Amanda's thoroughness ended up discovering things that were extraordinary serious. I am ever grateful.

Dr. Heckman explained well our symptoms and medication. We used telephone interpretation service at that time, the doctor and the interpreter were hard to hear our conversation because (maybe) the speaker of the phone was not clear sounds. They sometimes heard to hear so that our conversation not smooth but I understood most of conversation. I appreciated both the doctor and the interpreter.
