I recently attended an office appointment with my parents. Dr. Heck was very patient and kind. He completed a thorough Neurological exam and conveyed the results of his exam in terms a lay person could understand.

He was running late I guess I was his rush patient to get back on schedule he wanted it short and sweet. He had absolutely no care that it took me a year to get to the point to be in his office.
