    Horrible bed side manner. Made my after surgery experience traumatic.
    Dr. Heller was incredible. He is very knowledgable and explains things really well even if you don't ask. He is kind and patient but very efficient. I would recommend Dr. Heller to anyone who is searching for a neurosurgeon. I also did research for doctors in Seattle and Portland and I was extremely happy with going with Dr. Heller.

    Within one week, both my husband and my aunt both had surgeries performed successfully by Dr. Heller. My husband required a cervical fusion C5,6&7. He is back to work, playing the sport he lives and is symptom-free. He is excellent at explaining your options and then helping you understand the procedure. We are very appreciative of the services he has provided my husband and my aunt.
