Do not let my 5 stars fool you. It's funny this website says Dr Heim is accepting new patients, unless you've seen another physician in the practice. No matter whether you were pleased with the initial physician, apparently you as a parent do not have the right to request to see Dr Heim for a second opinion for your child unless you can master several hoop jumping the likes of which are unheard of in any other practice, even if Dr Heim has seen and treated another child of yours previously.Shame

Dr. Heim took excellent care of my son. My son broke his hand; Dr. Heim reviewed his x-rays and determined no surgery was needed and placed him in a cast. Informed him of what he could and couldn't do with that extremity, was very thorough. I would recommend Dr. Heim to anyone.

Needing knee replacement,both knees,after blue cross blue shield asked for pier on pier call to appeal their denial..what would that take 15 min? was advised Dr Heim didn't do pier on pier calls.. so still in pain,about 3 hours sleep per night..and have to find another doctor that will take the time if questioned...office help is nice..but good luck getting through directly to his nurse..take mesg and call back..too busy.
I apologize for your experience but I believe that you intended this review for a different physician. I specialize in upper extremity surgery and hand surgery and therefore I am not the physician that evaluated you for knees.

Dr. Heim was very attentive and genuinely caring. I didn't feel rushed in any way when going over my concerns. He put me at ease while we discussed the choices I had in treatment. I am very thankful for his patience and thoroughness. I would absolutely recommend him!

My grandson was injured at school and needed immediate assistance for a broken wrist. Dr. Eric Heim, was available and treated my grandson with the utmost profession and care. Everyone in the office, from the receptionists, cast room ladies and his nurse, took excellent care of my grandson. Would recommend Dr. Eric Heim, and staff to friends and family, 10/10.
