I love her!
Dr Heizman is amazing - and my husband agrees! She is what every obgyn should aspire to be. She has been my obgyn through two pregnancies and delivered both my babies (both high risk pregnancies)! She is proactive, intelligent, kind, caring and decisive. Personable, friendly. She put all of my our fears at ease as she navigated us to two healthy full term pregnancies! She is calm, positive but always honest and direct. I never felt rushed, always a priority ; always got quick return calls from her nurse. She is in-demand in her office - and for a good reason.. she is worth the wait to get in! She is someone who I trust , and she kept me & my babies safe all the way through delivery, and after. When looking for an Obgyn , you really want a person who you can have that close patient/doctor relationship and feel completely comfortable talking about any and all concerns….Dr Heizman is that person for me. All I can say is I absolutely love her and Highly recommend her.

Dr. Heizman delivered my son. A VBAC done naturally according to my wishes. Throughout the entire pregnancy, she was always so patient with all of my questions and always explained things very plainly. She was very encouraging knowing I was nervous about the VBAC considering my last birth was very traumatic (did not happen at NKCHA) and she was always cued into any of my concerns. The day of the birth, she was so calm and relaxed and helped me feel calm even without an epidural. My experience was incredible and out of this world, healing in fact. It would not have been possible without Dr. Heizman and I’m grateful for her guidance and expertise. I would strongly recommend her if you’re reading reviews like I was 40 weeks ago unsure of who to pick.

Dr. Heizman is the absolute best. I transferred to her from a fertility clinic when I was 10 weeks pregnant. She’s an in-demand doc at this office, so I had to do a couple of appointments with a nurse practitioner before actually seeing Dr. Heizman, but she is 100% worth the wait. She is kind, compassionate, honest, and will never make you feel rushed or like any of your questions are stupid. I ended up with a long and complicated labor and delivery and she was there every step of the way explaining my options and including me in the discussion rather than making decisions for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Heizman to anyone looking for a new OB.

Not being from Kansas City or the state for that matter. I wasn’t too sure exactly where to go to get the best care for my pregnancy. Since this is my first pregnancy I have been a horrible worrier. Luckily my husband and I became great friends with our realtor, whose wife is a nurse at the hospital. We asked her who she recommended and she immediately said Dr. Heizman. All I can say is I absolutely love her. Personable, friendly and amazing. She is someone who I trust to keep me and my baby safe all the way through delivery, and then some. When looking for an OB/GYN you want someone who you can have that patient, Dr. relationship and feel completely comfortable talking about any concerns. Dr Heizman has been that person for me. Highly recommend her.

I had 2 miscarriages in the past, so I was very nervous with my third pregnancy. Dr. Heizman made me feel so comfortable and reassured! Everything went wonderfully this time around, and I could be more grateful for the wonderful care she took with me.
