i have the greatest praise for Dr. Heeringa and his entire staff. I am pleased beyond words for the treatment I received. he explained everything he was going to do at the start of every procedure. Dr. Heeringa had to do a lot of work on my legs and he did such a great job that I didn't mind the hour and a half trip from Gaylord to his office

David Henson – Sep 26, 2019
I recently received sclerotherapy treatment for venous insufficiency with Dr. Heeringa and was amazed at the difference in my energy level afterwards. His office staff were very efficient and friendly. My wait time was always less than 5 minutes and diagnosis was performed by another physician by ultrasound right in the office. Thoroughly pleased and worth the pinch!

Dr Herringa and his staff are top drawer! By this I mean professional, competent, knowledgeable, respectful and efficient. As a retired Risk Management/ Patient Safety registered nurse, my standards of care might possibly exceed the expectations of others. As such, I personally recommend Dr Herringa and staff to those who need venous / lower extremitiy diagnosis and treatment.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review...Read More
After seeing numerous physicians for vascular problems, my doctor recommended I contact Dr. Herringa. Finally, I had the most comprehensive ultrasound and the best treatment ever. Not only was I seen by Dr. Herringa in his office but while I was out of state Dr. Herringa gladly consulted with my doctors in Florida. So happy to have found such a caring and excellent doctor.

Helpful educating me on the best procedure To alliveate the pain and discomfort in my legs. Highly skilled and caring. His assistant and front office staff are caring and knowledgeable concerning vein therapy. When the office confirms an appointment they call you personally not an automated canned call. Wish I had taken care of this 10 years ago. I now can sleep at night without the aching in my legs. Thank you for giving me back the legs I used to have.

I have only been to Dr. Heeringa one time. The whole office experience was wonderful. They all were very kind and Dr. Heeringa was very professional and knowledgeable. I had my ultrasound of my legs the same day as I come from a distance. I am very happy with Dr. Heeringa’s tech and I will recommend this office to many. I’m looking forward to my vericose veins being cared for by Dr. Heeringa.
