I was referred to Dr. Heier by another surgeon. They talked by phone while I was in the other surgeon's office. Dr. Heier said for me to come directly to his office. I did and was immediately cared for even though I did not have all the needed paperwork with me. Everyone in Dr. Heier's office was courteous and professional. I recommend Dr. Heier without reservation.

I've been a patient of Dr. Heier's for about 5 yrs. He is straight & to the point, takes time to really listen to my concerns. He found broken bones in my foot when other doctors didn't. Had 2 surgeries with him with excellent results! Also had great nonsurgical plans as well! Very pleased with all of his work. I am pain free thanks to him!!

Dr. Heier did an Agility ankle replacement on my right ankle in 2006, and then an Infinity replacement on my left ankle in 2019. These were successful and have allowed me to walk naturally and without pain. We talk frankly, and I trust him implicitly.

Dr. Heier was punctual, professional, and did a great job of explaining the complexity of the fracture. He provided a great bedside manner with a bit humor. I would definitely recommend him to others seeking an orthopedic specialist.

My first visit with Dr. Keith Heier was above and beyond what I hoped for. Not only did my entire visit start out on a positive note thanks to the friendly, knowledgeable staff, but Dr. Heier was kind and put me immediately at ease. His expertise was evident in his examination and our discussion. I wasn’t rushed, nor did I have to wait. I feel confident in Dr. Heier’s diagnosis and highly recommend him and his practice.

Dr. Heier performed surgery on my broken ankle a few years ago. He was wonderful and made me back to normal which was important as I work FT and at the time my daughter was 2! Today I referred a friend of mine who needs him after a lousy job on her heel from another surgeon. So thankful!!

I will recommend Dr. Heirer. He listened to my issues, and “we” made the decision that was best for me. I am so happy with the end results. Could not have done this without him listening to my needs. Thank you

Dr Heier has treated three family members. We first met him when my daughter had a foot injury several years ago that required surgery. Since then, I have also needed foot surgery and my wife has gone in for treatment. Dr Heier is thorough with his explanations and his staff (Jodi & Justin) are very competent. I recommend them highly.

Dr. Heier is top notch. I have not had an easy road with my foot but Dr. Heier has discussed every single option with me. He discussed my concerns and hesitations but in the end he told me truthfully what we needed to do. I am still in recovery but I totally trust Dr. Heier's advice and his staff.

You will be hard pressed to find a better foot and ankle surgeon! He recently performed complex surgery on my son who's foot is anatomically abnormal and was causing daily pain. He was direct and a really skilled surgeon to have accomplished what he was able to do in one surgery.

It's really difficult to find physicians who spend time with patient and family and explains the condition in detail. Dr. Heier is one of the best physicians I have seen who understands patient-centered and holistic care. His exceptional professionalism and clinical expertise is impressive. I would give him 10/10 for his clinical explanation, patience, customer service, and professional skills.
