  Overall Patient Rating - January 2020
Dr. Heit was outstanding. He was very easy to talk to and showed genuine concern about any impact my condition might be having on my activities. I was initially reluctant to come in due to a concern that a podiatrist would push me to use a rigid orthotic at all times without regard for any drawbacks. I experienced the absolute opposite with Dr. Heit. He empathized with my situation and shared some of his own running experiences, which gave me confidence that he was thinking about the problem holistically.
