    Yes you wait sometimes. But it is because he cares about his patients! I have not had surgery with the dr yet, but I know several people who have. I've only heard good things. He is being very conservative with my hips. I have felt no pressure for surgery and I appreciate that.

    Dr. Heekin does the most knee replacement surgeries in Florida. That is why I went to see him. He was great. I instantly trusted him. That's why he did my surgery. I am so glad he did. My results are outstanding. I am coming along nicely in my recovery!
