I waited 2 hours to see this doctor and didn't even see him. I saw his NP who was only in the room for 6 minutes tops. Everyone at this practice seems more concerned about getting my money than providing care. It's like a people mill.

Bruce did an excellent job on my rotator cuff surgery. Prior to my surgery he was very informative.. The scar is minimal

Dr Heck takes the time to listen to what is going on, he finds out what is going on and explains all your options. He takes as long as you need to talk to help you understand. He addresses any concerns you have. I would recommend him to anyone I know that needs an orthopedic dr. He is interested in doing what is best for you. I had to have rotator cuff surgery and Dr. Heck is the one doctor I trusted most to do it. He is an outstanding surgeon

I have worked with Dr Heck several years with a focus on work related injuries. Dr Heck has demonstrated a unique ability to problem solve, provide world class care, while understanding the needs of employees to return to work. Dr. Heck's willingness to make himself available 24/7 harkens to a time when physicians put their patient before themselves. He is the only physician in the medical community in Findlay Ohio willing to visit my plant to understand the needs of the employee.

Excellent physician! He took care of my daughter's swollen knee that was not responding to rest/Motrin after several weeks. He was able to obtain MRI that day and make quick and specific diagnosis. He injected the inflamed area that allowed her to participate in the dance recital and return to track championships.
