I've been seeing Dr. Hechtman for many years for my OB/GYN needs and she has always been great. Very knowledgeable and concerned for my health and wellness. Takes time to listen and asks questions. Good demeanor and bedside manner. I've recommended her to friends and am now expecting my first child. I look forward to her delivering my baby.

I had surgery done by Dr. Hechtman and wow was that a mistake. I highly recommend going to any other doctor than her. I felt as though she talked to me like I was a child and inferior to her in some way. She lacks bed side manor and one of the most important things a doctor should have, EMPATHY! I had extreme pain post surgery and as I was in the post surgical room she discharged me even though I was crying in extreme pain. Worst experience of my life. I recommend finding anyone else.

I visited Jody today for a consult for my Adenomyosis. I sat in the room for over 45 minutes before she walked in and shook my hand like a dead fish. She talked to me as if I was a six year old with no knowledge of the female body or even how my period happens. Every question I had was met with a condescending answer from her stone cold face. I found her to be arrogant, rude, and lacking in any basic people skills. Don't waste your time.

Dr. Hechtman is a terrible doctor. I went to Dr. Hechtman to have surgery to treat my Endometriosis. 2 months after surgery I went back complaining of pain. She told me I had to be 'making up my pain' cause my surgery went well and she 'got it all. I just surgery with another doctor and they found my endo everywhere and said the previous doctor didn't know what they were doing because it was everywhere! She also lack empathy for her patients and I felt as if she talked to me like I was stupid.
She was extremely knowledgable and asked questions I had never even thought of. I went in for a birth control consultation and will be going back for a pap. I can see how people could find her unsympathetic in her speech, but I think she just thinks faster than she can talk. I so far trust her completely. She listened to my concerns, did research off of what my primary doc gave her, and was able to ease my nervousness about my upcoming pap.

Had two surgies with Dr. Hetchman and was not impressed. She lacks empathy for her patients and their physical pain. I highly recommend choosing a different doctor. She also only excused me from work for 1 day post surgery. Terrible doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hechtman's for vet 6 years. She has delivered all three of my children and has been by my side from the beginning with helping figure out infertility to helping me through a number of pregnancy complications. She's amazing. She has facilitated the births of my dreams and been on my team. She listens. She's real and she cares. I am about to have a fourth baby and I can only hope she will be able to attend and participate in that birth as well.

Always rushed appointments. Never listened to my concerns. Bad experience and she just seemed to not want to deal with my high risk pregnancy. In the end she never reached out and went the extra mile. Luckily I went to mfm doctors who did.
