I have been a patient for 3 years and so far received excellent care. Recently though i have noticed that there was a misdiagnosis posted to my e-portal which i have tried to clear up to no avail. I enjoy having a doctor that i can trust with my care but question when he stops listening. I am not sure whether this is doctor or nurse related error but now i pay closer attention to what goes into my chart. I like the e-portal but i wonder anout the information in it. Kind of sad to lose trust.
We are grateful for the kind words regarding our physician. We will investigate the concern regarding your portal and take the appropriate measures to fix this issue. I will need further information from you. Please call me at 772-398-7819. Thank you. Jessica Martinez-Patient Advocate

I am a new patient of Dr Hurst. His knowledge and skills are outstanding. I feel right at home talking with him and discussing my health and how to improve issues that I have. I ask him questions and he responds with answers and explains them. I highly recommend Dr Hurst to my family and friends. He is very professional and polite. He listens very close and is concerned. I plan on keeping Dr Hurst as my Primary Care Doctor. I am highly satisfied with him and all the staff at Heart & Family.

I'm 61 years old and Dr. David Hurst is one of the finest doctors I've ever had as my physician. He's very very knowledgeable and devoted to being a great doctor. He's like the doctors I had as a child that truly cared about helping his patients. Ty dear Dr. Hurst for being true to your profession and your patients. Ty for being what a physician should be.

Great Primary Care Physician! Takes all the time needed, explains options clearly, does not "over-do" testing, very personable. I also really like Heart and Family's electronic record keeping - provides doctors instant access to records by all other facility's records and tests. Accepts my insurance. Usually able to schedule an app't with either Dr Hurst or his Nurse Practitioner within a couple days.

I've only been here twice, will not return. Was feeling down went to talk to the Dr, next thing I know police is called and I'm being baker act. So make sure you don't share your feelings. Went to the ER and the whole staff thought this office jumped the gun and sent me home. The Nurse Practitioner needs another profession. Dr hurst need some sensitivity training you can't talk to someone for 2 minutes and think you know them. So in fairness the nurse and front staff are very nice.
