The Dr. did not have previous knowledge of my medical records, he was determining treatment based on a 2009 record that he had when i was being hospitalized for an acute condition. Ann ultra sounds had just been done in the last month, he had no record, nor had he requested previous records. He didn't even bother to ask me what I was doing for the condition nor did he even look at the extensive questionnaire that I filled out before going into the room. I have not heard back from him as to the findings of my ultrasound. I would never return. He might be a good surgeon IF you knew that is what you needed taken out. But I wouldn't not ever trust him.

Dr Heinberg has been amazing during all of my care this entire year. He was the first surgeon who treated me in January and now hopefully the one to finally get this resolved in December, we hope! He is thorough, compassionate and very personable. I can't thank him enough for my care!
