I like Dr. Heit allot. He considers my current medical care needs at the forefront, addresses them while also keeping my past health history, also in the forefront, to appropriately identify the best treatment and care plan options for ME.
June 2018
Dr Heitt is one of the most thoughtful, personable articulate providers I have ever met. i appreciate how he explained everything understandably and repeated the important points. I did not receive and medicine so that is probably why we did not dwell on medicines or side effects. i expect from his manner so far that on the day he gives me an injection in my ankle tendon is when he will tell me more about the medicine and any precautions. i was satisfied with the amount of information about the medicine to know I want to return for the shot.
June 2018
I´ve seen Dr. Heit for previous issues and have always liked him. I feel he does a very good job explaining what to expect and outcomes that he sees in his clinical experience.
June 2018
This was my second appointment with Dr. Heit. Not only does he answer questions he also educated me regarding the best way to strengthen my right achilles tendon. I was doing it incorrectly.
June 2018
I am so very glad I chose Dr. Heit for my problem. He was right on with diagnosis and his recommendations. I especially liked the fact that he offered me choices for the problem to be ameliorated. I am happy with my choice as I believe it to be the best one for me. And so far, so good.
