Patient Comments (3)

Have had the pleasure of having him as my treating physician for 3 different incidents. Once, for a meniscus tear, once for neck/back issues following a vehicle accident and once to drain fluid from the knee he had operated on about 15 years prior.

Absolutely terrible. He ignored my symptoms and the reason I was reffered to him. I'm there for the muscles separating in my hip and he's insists it's my back that's the problem.

Dr Heinrich is awesome IF you like a doctor that is straightforward and honest. He won't sugarcoat anything - he tells it like it is. That's my favorite thing about him.
