Awesome doc - he is so good & patient will all he comes into contact with.
Dr. Heit is great. He really goes out of his way to explain the situation to me. I never feel rushed and he takes great care in dealing with my problem. If it was not for his suggestions and help, I would not be able to continue my walks. He knows how important walking and working out is to me. I can´t thank him enough for his expert advice and care.
Dr. Heit is very engaging and knowledgeable. He explains thoroughly and seeks patient interaction.
Dr. Hiet was extremely attentive. Listen to what my concerns were and addressed them in a clear direct way. Was reassuring and helpful.
Dr. Heit is wonderful. I had a couple of questions and he didn´t rush me through the appointment. he answered my questions very thoroughly.
Dr. Heit is an extremely efficient and empathetic person.
I have seen several podiatrists for my foot problem, and Dr. Heit has far surpassed each of them in diagnosing and treating the pain. He is an expert in podiatry and I would recommend him highly.
Dr. Heit is great. He examined my foot and X-rays and quickly diagnosed the problem
Friendly Doctor. Thank you!
Not a lot of time taken to explain injury and healing process. Felt rushed.
I´ve recommended Dr Heit to my son & my son was able to run a marathon because of his care.
dr. Heit is is a model that Virginia mason should strive for for their physicians
Dr. Heit was outstanding.
I looked up Dr. Heit´s bio and was impressed with his background as well as his publication on the part of my foot that was injured. His explanations were complete and his advice was founded on solid reasoning coupled with his own experience.
As with most providers, both physicians and ARNPs, at VM, Dr Heit was very thorough in his medical evaluation, complete in his explanations of my condition, and provided a prognosis and an inexpensive specialized medical device that I had not heard of or conceived. I came away with a plan which was my goal in this appointment.
Really liked him.
Dr Heit was very encouraging. He made me feel understood and very well cared for. He is personable and took the time to recommend and encourage use of an app for running. I have already recommended him to family members.
He´s simply the best.
My provider spent 25 minutes with me with more than 50% of that in face to face contact time and counseling of my problem.
Dr Heit makes a very bad situation tolerable by explaning what´s wrong and letting me know all available options to help ease the pain
#6. - The follow up care instructions were verbal and it would have been nice to have them also written down on the info sheet that was sent home with me.
Dr. Helt is outstanding - he listens, is compassionate, explains things well and clearly and with no condescension. Top notch!
Very good experience.
Dr Heit has an exceptionally consistent, respectful, pleasant and attentive communication/education style. It is a pleasure to encounter a doctor so skilled.
#1 attribute is that I have confidence in Eric Heit´s technical skill. #2. He is very approachable so it´s easy to ask questions. #3. As is the case here, he brings up my x-rays, a visual which helps him explain what is going on. That VM has the systems which facilitate pt. care AND teaching is super.
I appreciated that he took the time to address all of the issues I am having with my foot and also has new ideas of possibilities of treatment
Excellent listener. Felt confident in his physical exam skills and ability to arrive at diagnosis. Excellent technical skills.
Dr Heigt did a great job on my other ankle a couple years ago so it was great to see him again for my new problem. He´s very good at getting to the root of my problem and making recommendations
Love Dr Heit. He always explains things so I understand and is very gentle.
I have recommended this doctor many times...
Dr. Heit is one of the best doctors I´ve dealt with. Very well-rounded & sharp.
