Dr. Heckman's Care Philosophy

I believe in promoting the general well-being of patients through good, goal-oriented lifestyle choices. The doctor-patient relationship must work as a team, creating the best care-plan for each individual. I believe this is done through appropriate education and treating the whole person rather than the disease process.

Dr. Heckman is the most compassionate and kind hearted doctor I've ever met. Extremely knowledgeable on top of that. I have been struggling so much lately with a lot of health anxiety and she thoroughly explained everything to me at our appointment and it really put me at ease. I have had doctors dismiss me and make me feel kind of crazy, but not Dr. Heckman. I feel so much better after my appointment with her and anyone would be lucky to have her as their doctor! Thank you so much Dr. Heckman.

Dr. Heckman is amazingly personable and compassionate. She goes above and beyond what is expected and makes each patient feel as if they are her only one. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

This Dr apparently reviewed my case according to the nurse at this office and instead of calling in an antibiotic since I was diagnosed there two days prior by a different Dr with bronchitis, she said I should go to urgent care and pay more $ to be seen again. I've never even seen this Dr but that's bad advice in my opinion.

Dr. Heckman is a wonderful human being and a fantastic doctor. I chose her strictly based on reviews and never looked back. I was very lucky to find her and recommend her to everyone. Dr. Heckman is caring, attentive, and understanding. She gets to know you and remembers things about you. This allows her to offer awesome service to her patients. She really is the best.

An excellent physician offering exceptional care. She patiently explains procedures to my daughter and answers all of her questions. Her nurse is very friendly and efficient. I have recommended Dr. Heckman to many of my friends, and several of them now see her and are also very pleased with her care.
