Dr. Heerwagen is the best! He has performed four surgeries on me and he is very thorough. He is spot on with all his diagnoses and is able to tell me everything that is going on. His entire office staff is kind and professional. I highly recommend him. Listen to him and you will be fine.

Dr Heerwagen has been helping me with old, tired arthritic knees. Replaced my right knee in late September and it is New Years now and I’m totally satisfied with his work! I trust him whole heartily. I met no less than 4 people working in the hospital that he has performed surgery on with great success. We know that I will need the left knee in a few years and I will use him again. He has been a blessing in my life.

Dr Heerwagen removed a large tumor from my thigh and the surgery went so smoothly. My post op course also went smoothly. he answered all my questions and has an excellent bedside manner. He has also treated other members of my family and they have done very well under his care. I would go to Dr Heerwagen again.

I am deeply unsatisfied with Dr. Heerwagen's attitude towards his patients. I went to see him twice and Dr spent not more than 3 minutes with me, saying that everything looks good, although I told him, that I had increasing pain each day and could barely walk. I had to go to another doctor, who sent me for MRI to finally find what was bothering me. My advice for Dr. Heerwagen would be to pay more attention to his patients. I would never recommend this doctor. Very bad experience!

He is absolutely amazing! Professional, courteous, kind and generous. I hope I don't ever need another hip replacement, but if I do, I will seek him out again. His encouragement helped me navigate the whole recovery process with ease and confidence. Thank you Dr. Heerwagen!!!

Knowledgeable, professional, but also personal. I felt that he saw me as a person and not just another operation he was performing. He answered my questions in a way that was understandable to a lay person.
