Unfortunately I have been in Pain Management for over 15 years after multiple failed back surgeries First let me say the Dr. Heller is not a Board Certified Anesthesiologist like the vast majority of pain management physicians His training is physical medicine. As such he is over conservative in treating pain I AM NOT DRUG SEEKING However I had to leave the practice because of chronic under treatment which left me unable to work A traditional pain management physician coming from an anesthesiologist background is usually more aggressive. The straw to make me leave was my last visit where he walked into the exam room with preprinted prescriptions in effect prescribing without even hearing or asking how I was doing. He may be an excellent physical medicine physician but is dismissive to patients needs and leaves me and many others in pain. I suggest a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and a physician who does not blatantly dismiss patients pain

Nothing but the highest regard for Dr. Heller and his staff. His intervention helped me with a serious back pain issue when other methods and MDs failed to find/fix the cause.

I was a patient of alleged Dr. Heller for a year or two. While in his “care,” he refused my repeated requests for more medication despite deterioration of my discs and increasing levels of pain. I left his “care” but it was too late and surgery was the only alternative. In my opinion he missed his calling....he ought to have been a veterinarian or a fish monger. One good thing...he treats everyone exactly the same...poorly and dismissively, as if they are criminals & drug addicts. BAD KARMA!

NOTE: scanning the 1 star reviews seem to be all patients on opiates; take that with a grain of salt. I went to Dr. Heller for a 13 year long chronic pain issue in my hip. He suspected it could be emanating from my lower lumbar and scheduled an MRI and scripted me a muscle relaxer and a stronger NSAID, which provided greater pain relief than I've enjoyed in years. He's knowledgeable and proactive, and has a very friendly manner. I feel I've found a solid doctor that I will continue with!

Office doesn't respond to emails, voicemails, Facebook messages, anything. Very unprofessional. Ultimately would not see me and would not tell me why. Huge waste of my time.

I'm not sure why Dr. Heller is in pain management or even a doctor at all! He's an awful doctor who treats EVERYONE like a drug addicted criminal!! My disabled mom who is in her 60's & has never been in trouble her whole life was referred to Heller after her longtime family practice dr retired. In the 5 mins Dr.Heller spent with my Mom, he treated her very badly, he was rude, cold & focused on addiction instead of her medical issue! He clearly needs to be in another field of work!

Second time I saw Dr. Heller. 1st time all of 1 min and No help with my pain. 2nd time 30 seconds, so impersonal, rude and still no help with my pain. They did'nt have any records of me being in physical therepy for over 3 months. So Medicaid denied me. He focused more on pain addiction that's not real instead of helping me. Terrible Doctor

Dr Heller seems to focus too much on addiction that isn't real and not enough on pain that is real. As a pain management doctor he is horrible. Went for SI joint pain. He did an MRI of my back. Said he couldn't see my SI joint on the MRI. Recommended physical therapy after I refuse due to let him insert a spinal stimulator but didn't write up a referral. He treats me like an addict looking for pills as opposed to a business owner, homeowner, parent, and veteran that I am.

I am a cancer survivor and have post chemo neuropathy, Dr. Heller was treating this with Percocet and Lyrica. I got a phone call today saying I was being discharged due to noncompliance. The 1st noncompliance was that I consumed a 1 marijuana cookie for the pain which I was completely honest with Dr. Heller and now they are saying that Vicodin has showed up and was not prescribed by him. If you want to treated like a criminal by a uncompassionate dr that spends 3 min with you see Dr. Heller
