Verified Patient Reviews
Very impersonal and quick with not much direction and guidance of how my cortisone shot would affect me when home. I was in extreme pain and had to call the office back multiple times just to get a hold of someone. Said they woild return my call with answers but never did.
Dr. Heller's staff was courteous and prompt. After completing a few forms, Dr. Heller listened intently to my concern. I was impressed with his knowledge, skill, and professional manner.
Was seen by Dr. Heller right away. My questions/concerns were addressed.
Too quick. Didn't diagnose my condition and even didn't put an effort to know what's wrong. It seemed like as long as there is no procedure to do, the diagnosis doesn't matter.
It was great, but I had to fill out all the paperwork again--was hoping they would use the data I provided on ZocDoc
Doctor Heller and staff were all very pleasant, prompt, and courteous. I would definitely recommend Dr. Heller based on my experience.
Great doctor, seemed highly knowledgeable and efficient, but still took time to meaningfully discuss. My only complaint was that I filled out the electronic forms, but the office did not accept them and made me fill them out on paper again.
Dr Heller and his staff were very professional and pleasant. I would recommend him to all who suffer from arthritis pain
Took over two hours to be seen by the doctor. I was seen for about twelve seconds. He said there's nothing that can be done about my wrist problem and I just have to live with the pain. Not helpful.
Scheduling was easy, office staff was excellent, on site x-ray technology & technologist were awesome & Dr. Heller was Very thorough & I recommend them to anyone !
He overlooked a bursitis in sent me away even though I was clearly in pain.
Great doctor, very helpful and explained everything very well.
It wasn't a bad visit just a sort of rushed visit. He couldn't help me at the time of appointment because the problem that I was there for wasn't showing up in his testing. He told me to come back in when the problem was happening. Well for me that was either at night or early in the morning. I left his office feeling like that was a wasted visit. So I would say that he was not the doctor for me. He may be great for someone else with a different type of problem. That is why I may recommend him to a friend or colleague. The staff was nice especially the x-ray technician.
desk staff was very friendly. willing to call multiple MRI locations to compare earliest available appointments.
It was pleasant and very informantive
Good, in and out, not to say rushed
I'm a former patient of his and appreciate his candor and look forward to him treating my hand.
The doctor was nice, but quick and a bit "business as usual". Otherwise, I was fine with my appointment.
One hour wait just to get the X-ray and you still have to wait to see the doctor?! That's unneceptable
I would've liked to been referred to a back specialist as well since I had problems with that as well.
I had to reschedule to do horrible traffic and a small accident and they were very helpful to help me reschedule! This doctor is great.
Great office and doctors
All the paperwork procedure was done quickly. Dr. Heller knows what he's talking about with diagnosis and is very considerate of his patient.
I've seen Dr. Heller for an injury several times, but was very displeased with my most recent visit. He was very short with me and I felt the exam was not comprehensive. Of course, he's the professional and knows best, but I've had this injury before and he did less than half the diagnostics as my prior ortho in Florida. I doubt I will return after this visit.
I felt a little rushed, but Dr. Heller is an excellent physician and definitely knows his specialty. It was nice to have everything onsite except an MRI. I will definitely go back to him as needed.
