What People Say About Dr. Bernard Hearon, MD

Dr Hearon performed surgery on my left shoulder after a significant tear which required 4 screws. The entire team was excellent in listening to my issues and helping with pain management along with doing everything possible to get me healed. I'm very stubborn and wanted to get back to work but they stuck to their guns and made me wait. They genuinely had my health in their best interest.

Dr. Hearon was very pleasant to work with but at the same time he was very frank about the extent of my shoulder problem. He also made it very clear that we were in this process together. His job was to repair my shoulder and mine job was to follow through with the physical therapy to ensure the best outcome.

Dr. Hearon and his staff were awesome to work with. From my shoulder surgery all the way through the long 6 month recovery period. I had minimal if any discomfort at any point. And the rehab, although long, was conducted very professionally with my PT. Hope I never have to see them professionally again LOL, but they are all great people!? Show less
