Patient Comments (3)
Rehoboth Beach, DE |
Dr. Heckert spends very little time after waiting forever to get an appointment and is very dismissive of questions that I had regarding medications that he prescribed and my test results. I've never had a worst doctor and the nurse was very rough and impatient. There are plenty of better practices than Mid-Atlantic in the area and anyone who recommends Dr. Heckert and Mid-Atlantic Family practice must not know what to look for in a health care provider because this is a low quality facility.

I have been extremely happy with Dr Heckert and MidAtlantic Family Practice. The office is friendly, helpful and courteous, great communication. The practitioners who I have seen have all been very thorough and attentive. Impressed how the staff looks at improving access and care, such as instituting walk ins M-Sat. Great practice.
Rehoboth Beach, DE |
Dr. Heckert was very condescending, several times when inquiring about treatment or asking questions. Received a no show fees after cancelling an appointment and my health records are incorrect, which shows that they are not following through on documentation and when questioned about it, their best excuse was that mistakes happen. Mistakes DO happen and when they happen in doctors offices they can cause great harm to many patients. Choose wisely. Don't settle on Mid-Atlantic Family Practice.
