Dr. Hefferon has performed 5 surgeries on my aged body. All very successful and has kept me on the baseball field and basketball court. Couldn't find a better doctor.
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Hefferon was nice and performed surgery on both of my feet. I am only starting my post-opp care and ever experience I have had with the women in his office has been unprofessional, uncaring and frankly, they should not interact with patients. One hung up on me and another was admit about pushing my appointment back although I was instructed to come in earlier for my first post-opp appointment, leaving me to feel concerned about my bandages and possible infection.
in Chicago, IL |
The entire staff is top notch. I was in pretty bad shape and they moved mountains to get me in and reassure me. Dr. Hefferon is patient and made me feel like I was in excellent hands.
