in Irving, TX |
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!!!
in Lewisville |
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.
