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!
