Patient Comments (5)
in Kokomo, IN |
Dr. Heathers is a very caring person that takes times to talk to you and answer any questions you might have. I have been going to him over 20 years and am very happy with the care I have received and would highly recommend him.
Thank you. If you have any issues please contact my manager. If we don't know something is broken we cannot fix it.

This has been my family Dr. since Dr. Wilson retired and I would highly recommend him to anyone. His bedside manor is second to none. If you have ever seen the movie "Patch Adams", Dr. Heathers is the real life embodiment of Robin Williams character in the movie.

Great doctor spends time with his patients i've been with him several years he has treated me great and takes good care of me and my family.

After being a patient there for over a decade they just decide your done. Treat you like you don't matter.
There are only 3 main reasons why patients may be expelled from my practice: 1.) Failing a drug screen 2.) Using foul or inappropriate behavior towards me or my staff. 3.) Failure to make any amount of payment on an outstanding invoice.
Kokomo, IN |
Dr Heathers takes the time needed to satisfy your needs and answer your questions. You may have waiting times, but this is because of the care he takes with his patients. My wife and I both see him and are very happy with him.
Dr. Heathers' office has a program where patients may call before their scheduled appointment to see ,how he is running. If he is far behind then we instruct the patient to come later and explain that patients are seen in the order in which they are booked and not the order in which they arrive.
