Patient Comments (1)
in Kansas |
Dr Hettinger was very helpful in referring me to the physician that could resolve my problem. Rather than trying to do the procedure himself he very graciously referred me to a partner who could had more expertise in the procedure I needed. It takes a doctor who truly cares about their patients to put their patients first. Thanks Dr. Hettinger!
