Terrible doctor; even worse human being. Didn't listen to my concerns and only spent 2 minutes with me. Made me feel really stupid for asking questions and called me a name. I have never met a more rude and less compassionate doctor. I doubt she even cares about her patient. She misdiagnosed me and and when I went to have surgery I ended up with permanent nerve damage and chronic pain. I went to have another doctor who ran a test that she had refused and I probably didn't need surgery!

Waited months to see Van Heest only to be examined by the resident. Van Heest did stop in for a quick 5 min chat. She didn't even look at my wrist. What a disappointment and a waste of my tie and money.

Dr. Van Heest is a lifesaver (actually career saver)! I've seen her off and on, as needed for about 20 years. As a musician she saved my career by surgically performing ulnar nerve transpositions and once the nerves regenerated I can't tell that I ever had a career ending problem. I saw her again after a wrist fracture wasn't healing. She repaired it with a bone graft and while I still have some pain (age?) I can continue as a professional musician. She is the top hand/arm surgeon in Mpls!
