What People Say About Dr. Kathleen Heffron, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Heffron literally saved my life and my career. Her knowledge, expertise, ability to listen, and willingness to immediately test further (without waiting for another appt) was key in taking the appropriate preiminary steps that led to correct diagnosis of endometrial cancer. After her initial screening exam and subsequent hysteroscopy (ten days later), she referred me to appropriate GYN Oncologist. She not only is straight forward and intelligent, she cares about her patients.

Dr. Heffron is to the point with answers for my questions. I love this and find it so much better to have a doctor like her that doesn’t sugarcoat anything. I had a procedure with her and she was thorough with answers and made sure I was prepared. She’s fantastic! I highly recommend her. Office was clean, staff friendly and courteous.

Her bedside manner is horrible. I went to her for a second opinion and to see if she could help wherenother doctors couldn't. She made me feel horrible about my visit. I wished I would of never went to her I left feeling like I was unheard and that I had wasted her time. If you want to be listened too go to another doctor. She questioned everything I told her like I was not telling he truth or that it could not possibly be happening the way I was telling it.

I have seen Dr. Heffron since 2002. She delivered all three of my children. I am so grateful for her very direct and matter of fact delivery. She snapped me back to reality several times when pregnant. I am so grateful for her and her staff.

I was referred to Dr. Heffron for what the radiologist described as an abnormal CT scan of my abdomen and pelvic area. I was not so nicely informed that there was nothing wrong with me and I should not have been referred to her in the first place. She did not care about any of my problems. Also, her nurse came in every couple of minutes without knocking and kept informing her about her other patients. I had no privacy or concern about my well-being whatsoever.

There are many reasons that I would recommend Dr. Heffron. I would consider her to be an expert in her field. If it is beyond her scope, she will refer you to the appropriate provider. I think the thing that I love the most is her honesty. Some people might say that her bedside manner is horrible, but I disagree. If you want it sugar coated, she is not for you! Despite her "Brutal honesty", she really is very compassionate and caring. Kudos Dr. Heffron and her staff!

Came to Dr with family history of breast and ovarian cancer one immediate relative and two aunts. Made my fears greater. Only wanted to admonish me on how the ovarian pain I have had for years with endometriosis could not be. Words used to the effect that the insurance company would not approve surgery anyway. Said surgery was very high risk. Seemed relieved when I walked out without letting her do examination.

Although Dr. Heffron's bio is impressive her bedside manners was not! Within the first five minutes she was talking about removing my ovaries (she didn't have access to my previous medical records nor previous test results) and she hadn't even examined me yet). She was culturally insensitive and incompetent. It wasn't until she saw my tears that she took her foot of the gas and stopped pushing her agenda which appeared to be based on preconceived ideas, by then the visit was over.
