Dr. Heher fixed my drooping eyelids and the experience was top notch from start to finish. She is highly competent and professional and it's clear that she knows exactly what she is doing. I tend to be anxious and her confidence and warm bedside manner put me completely at ease. I knew exactly what to expect during my recovery and am very pleased with the results. Her office manager also was helpful, professional and kind.
