This was my second visit with Dr. Hegarty. The first was over 10 years ago when he evaluated my mother for hearing loss and balance issues. I was so impressed then that I kept his card for the time when I might be in need of his services. After evaluation by an audiologist affiliated with his office indicated that I have a slight asymmetrical hearing loss, I had a follow-up appointment with Dr Hegarty. He was incredibly informative about the problem, provided choices for follow-up, and, in conjunction with my input, laid out the care plan. He is so thorough, never rushed, obviously well versed in his specialty, and definitely a provider that I have every confidence in.

5 STARS+++ To Whom It May Concern, I highly recommend Dr. Hegarty and his incredible team of professionals. The depth and breadth of his medical knowledge and experience puts you completely at ease knowing you are getting the best care possible. At the beginning of your visit, he tells you of any test results so you quickly know the facts. As he examines you and does his diagnosis, he explains what he has observed. He asks questions, and listens to answers. He summarizes options, what needs to be done when, and gives explicit instructions on what you need to do. You leave his office with no unanswered questions or concerns. Dr. Hegarty was recommended to me for my dizziness, which he quickly diagnosed as vertigo. He educated me on this phenomenon, treated me, and recommended proven physical therapy that keeps it under control. He is extremely thorough, and I feel very fortunate to have his exceptional medical care.

I had lost a lot of hearing in my right ear. Dr. Hegarty got right to the heart of the problem with some comprehensive diagnostic testing and an exam. His assistants were very helpful. He corrected the issue with impressive thoroughness and I am fine now.
