LOVE the early morning appointments here. Dr. Heller saw me right away at 7:05am. He was so efficient at the skin exam, and I felt totally at ease. You can tell that he has 40 yrs of experience. I hope hekeeps practicing because I don't want to go back to any other derm!

Unfortunately I had a bad experience with Dr Heller. He rushed in, barely said hello, spent max 2 minutes on the exam and had surprisingly rough bedside manner. I wouldn’t recommend him

I broke out all over my face early 2017 and I went to Dr. Heller. He took one look at my face and immediately prescribed a couple of things for me to use. I've been using the same products ever since.He's super friendly, really knows what he's doing, and every time my acne flares up and I go see Dr. Heller it clears up right away. Awesome doctor.

The Doctor and his assistant were fine. The staffers at the Front Desk, however, should be trained in customer service. They were more engaged and interested in talking with each other than in being responsive to patients. In addition, I wasasked for additional medical information - beyond what was requested on the telephone/email prior to the appointment...even though I asked the Receptionist (when I made the appointment) - if she was sure she had all the pre-requisites for the appointment and I was assured that she hall all required information. In addition, the Front Desk personnel need an "attitude" adjustment

Excellent visit. I have seen two PA’s prior to this visit for the same issue and neither was as thorough nor took the time to explain the situation to me. I don’t want to see any other professional going forward.

Dr. Bruce was extremely nice and personable. He saw me right away. Diagnosed me pretty quick but to rule out other possibilities he took a biopsy which didnt hurt at all. He prescribed medication which I have yet to pick up. Hoping it works.

Dr Bruce Heller and his clinical assistant are excellent professionals, but I don't think Dr Heller belongs to that medical group, he was doing much better by himself, he knew how to run a Dr's office. This new place was worstthan a community rural clinic or supermarket, they were people that had the same opinion about the dermatologist machine. The office was clean, the space is not enough, neither the staff personal. The office was really uncomfortable packed, I was waiting for more than twenty minutes in a line of seven people before I was attended by a desoriented receptionist that was not sure about what she was doing. We were at least 28 people waiting to be attended (enough chairs to be seated) for any of the 7 doctors...The group Schewiger is a good financial idea for the doctors that participate in the group but they need a biggest office and with better trained staff...I waited for more than 1.10 hrs to be attended...I had to tell the receptionist the waiting time...anyway, I feel Dr. Bruce and his own staff, deserve better and Me too!!!

Amazing! I've had rosacea for 2 years now and could never find a good treatment. First time I see Dr Heller he gave me just the right medication - I haven't seen my skin look this good in a while! Waittime was not too much of an issues - take an early appointment and you'll be sure to be seen right away!

Dr. Heller is very professional, knowledgeable, and very pleasant to communicate with. The appointments are usually available for daytime and evenings - very convenient. The office is busy, indicating that patients like Dr Heller a lot; well, that may cause you a little extra waiting. Highly recommend.

Dr. Heller is thorough--he gave the intense light when checking my face for a second time. He found my melanoma in situ in the 90s, so he takes care to find any others. His colleague, Gracie, took photos of my spotsand marked a few. I haven't had any other melanomas, but I have had precancerous lesions removed. I also appreciated his recommendation of Dr. Zuckerman to remove the cyst on my scalp.
