Tabitha M. – Apr 29, 2021
Going to a much-desired OBGYN with a reputation for handling high-risk pregnancies comes with a few caveats: it’s hard to schedule a non-urgent yearly, and you may have to wait a while if she’s in an emergency surgery. But I’ll gladly wait. When you need to be her priority, you are. When she’s in the room with you, you have her full attention. When fit hits the shan and you’re in early labor with elevated BP, I don’t want anyone else by my side.

Dr. Heaton is knowledgeable, thorough, and explains things in a manner that I could fully understand. She is also supportive of her patients and the agreed treatment plans. So glad I found her!

Dr. Heaton is the most kind, caring, knowledgeable and down to earth provider I’ve ever been around. Her staff is wonderful too! As a fellow provider, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone as she cared for me with a holistic and comprehensive approach which is so important for mamas with other health conditions. I’m so thankful to have had Dr. Heaton throughout my pregnancy and recent birth of my healthy baby boy!!

Dr. Heaton is an exceptional doctor. She has gone above and beyond, not just for me but for my family. If not for her persistence in referring me for a problem I was having unrelated to anything gynecological I may be in far worse shape today, due to her caring and loving nature and excellent bed-side care I have been able to receive treatment and help with a meningioma that was found due to her referrals. Thanks to her and her wonderful team (Amy) among many others we have three healthy children. This mommy/patient can not say enough to express my gratitude and love for everything she has done for me and my family!
