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.

William – Feb 01, 2020
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!

Judd in Haymarket, VA – Nov 06, 2018
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've been seeing Dr. Heller for the past 3 months and couldn't be more pleased with my progress. He has diagnosed and treated my ailment with the utmost care and compassion. I would recommend Dr. Heller and his group to anyone! Very pleased.

Washington, DC – Jun 02, 2017
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.

Tony in Broad run va – Jan 21, 2017
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
