Chicago, IL |
My mother is 87 years old and has high blood pressure and extreme arthritic pain. Dr. Heitor spends a lot of time with my mother and really goes over her condition, medication and her overall well being. She asks a lot of questions and really listens to my mother's concerns. She is very good about staying in touch with me via email.
