    My child was not an easy patient. We saw Dr. Heras for ears that had wax build up and caused her pain. She kicked and screamed as Dr. Heras and her assisting staff tended to my little girl. I appreciated their calmness and professionalism. The assisting staff and administrative assistant were so kind. I felt awful regarding the way my child behaved and how it might of sounded in the lobby of Dr. Heras' office. Dr. Heras thank you for your patience with my child and giving her excellent care.

    Dr. Heras diagnosed my family member with mild acid reflux. I found this odd after he reported years of severe choking episodes. Tonight he had the paramedics respond to yet another severe choking episode. Any doctor who doesn't refer their patients out appropriately or require any further diagnostic testing when they report these kinds of severe symptoms is irresponsible. Prevacid and a friendly smile doesn't help a man experiencing an esophageal restriction brought on by anxiety.

    She is amazing and is so well rounded, she is happy to give medication when needed and also happy to tell you hot dogs and mac and cheese and soda may not be the best choice for a childs best health. Hello people if you want to be empowered and not feel victimized every time your child is sick look at what you are feeding them and ask does it fuel their bodies to fight infection. every time my daughter got a big over load of sugar and dairy she got sick, immune system cant candle that daily

    Heidi is by far the most knowledgable doctor I have ever met. She is so kind and has such a great bedside manner. When you are a Mom with sick kids a patient caring sensitive doctor is so key. She also found that my daughter was having cronic infections due to a food allergy. My daughters health would not be what it is with out this knowledge. It was powerful to have some thing we could do to improve how she was feeling on such a large scale. Love DR HERAS!!!!
