What People Say About Dr. Gregory Heinen, MD

I went to Dr. Hienen for severe shoulder pain. After an extensive exam we decided on a shoulder replacement. I am pain free for the first time in over 20 years! Complete range of motion! Basically after College swimming and water polo my shoulders were bone on bone and worn out. Dr. Heinen is a skilled surgeon who has a fellowship in shoulder surgery! I give him my highest recommendation and his surgery hospital in Arcadia is first class.

Dr. Heinan has done a knee and a shoulder for me and he has done knees and shoulders for several friends. His work is highly recommended by my friends. I have recommended him to my friends as well and they have been satisfied. What he has done for me has turned out very well. He is a straight shooter and will be you about your problem without beating around the bush, and he does so in layman's terms. The surgery center in Arcadia is wonderful as well. Their staff is very nice and helpful.

Horrible experience due to failure to provide simple patient care and follow through on promised communication. I came to Dr. Heinen for a torn meniscus. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and I liked him. I chose to schedule arthroscopic knee surgery with him for the torn meniscus. From there, everything went downhill. Because of the upcoming Halloween (which falls on Tuesday, his surgery day), I asked to schedule for anytime that week. Without any consultation with me, I was told that 2:30

I tore a tendon during a work related incident. Dr. Heinen wasted no time in scheduling a surgery and explained all the details leading up to and after the surgery. He and his staff were very courteous, professional and very caring. This was my first work related injury and I felt extremely confident and I had chosen the right doctor !

Dr. Heinen was recommended to me by my longtime orthopedic surgeon, Jerry Wall of Riverside Sport Clinic, just before his tragic passing two years ago. I had torn both rotator cuffs in a work accident and Dr. Heinen surgically repaired them, first one, then PT, then the other, then PT. Both of my shoulders are now perfect, as though I'm 20 years old and never gotten hurt. I recommend Dr. Heinen for any injury to your shoulders. He's honest, straight talking, w/no condescension in his voice.

I've been to many doctors in my lifetime and Dr. Heinen has got to be one of my very favorite. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about what he does, he takes the time to explain (in a way you can understand) everything that is going on... From diagnosis to treatment, to personality and bedside manner, he's simply the best!
