    Cannot recommend. Doctor doesn't discuss risks vs benefits of procedures he recommends strongly. Didn't explain. Didn't listen. Have seen many ENT's over the years but this was the only really bad experience.

    Have gone to Dr Heiland for years. He really knows his stuff, but the staff experience is horrible and they don't seem to care. Recently had a serious ear issue, tried to see him twice, scheduled weeks early. I waited 75+ minutes each time and had to leave without treatment each time. On 2nd attempt, raised the issue and was greeted by his rude office manager who pretty much said "tough luck". I asked her to have the Dr. call me about it. Never heard back from anyone.

    Dr. Heiland is a great guy. Has a funny sense of humor and is very informational when asking him questions. I had both Tonsillectomy and nose plasty done using his services and the end result was terrific. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of any of these procedures. Thank you Dr. Heiland for your making my breathing better and sore throats almost non-existent.
