Lampeter, PA |
I have been going to Dr. Heffner for quite some time. Always was treated well, but recently the care and staff is unsatisfactory. First off approximately a year ago I was misdiagnosed by the Doctor, later properly diagnosed by a PA. Recently a staff member named Patty wouldn't even schedule me an appointment when I called because I did not have my insurance info with me. Just terrible service and expertise. I recommend not stepping foot in this office. Poor patient care and customer service.
