    Dr. Heilig was great but the office was not. I would not recommend anyone to go there unless you have an entire day to devote to your appointment. The lobby was packed the whole time I was there and I had to wait about an hour to see the doctor. After the appointment I waited for over an hour and a half at the pharmacy for my prescription to be called in. I made 2 calls to the office to remind them to do it and never got it filled. I will not be returning to this office.

    Dr. Heilig is the best orthopedic I have been to. He is caring, patient, and kind. He really made me feel at ease and explained my condition, and he took the time to discuss my options so that i thoroughly understood. I have recommended him to family members and friends, all of which have been satisfied with their treatment. I also love the staff. Everyone is so nice.
