    Dr Hearon and his staff provided excellent care. I am very happy with the results of my carpal tunnel surgery and would highly recommend Dr Hearon.
    in Derby, KS |
    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
