    Dr Heiland diagnosed my husband 4 years ago with tonsil cancer and has performed several surgeries since then. Never had a Dr who cares as much about my husband as dr Heiland does. The trust ,connection and caring over the last 4 years have been a source of strength to both my husband and myself. Kami completes the experience by truly caring and always facilitating and connecting the dots between appointments and Other Doctors.

    I have been seeing Dr. Heiland since March/2000 when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Oral Cancer that had metastasized to my lymph nodes in neck . His aggressive and very competent treatment is the main reason I am still alive. His bedside manor is as good as it gets.

    Grossly incompetent and rude. Refused to hear my ailments due to his own arrogant self-entitled fixation on another disease i have that "interested him" although it was completely beyond his realm and knowledge. Gave me negligent and wrong advice regarding that completely irrelevant health problem he found in my file. Refused to answer my questions and condescended everything I had to say. Left me with zero information, diagnoses, or relevant information pertinent to my ear problem. Disgraceful

    Dr. Kurt Keiland was highly recommended to me approx. two years ago by my then oncology doctor. My initial visit was on time and informative. After the visit he took the time to personally call my home for his diagnosis and recommended procedure. He explaining that in his opinion surgery would be my best direction. He preformed my RND and saved my life. I highly recommend Dr. Heiland and his professional and efficient staff.

    I credit Dr. Heiland for saving my life. After a diagnosis of throat cancer, Dr. Heiland successfully performed surgery and put a team of oncologists (radiation and chemo) together and got me through a difficult and trying time. He has performed over 15 different procedures on me and I absolutely trust him and his judgement. Yes, there are times you have to wait, but the wait is well worth it and, for me, so is the outcome. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Heiland!

    I have a hard time giving this doctor two stars. His staff called me twice the day before my appointment and told me to call ahead and make sure he was running on time. I thought that was very nice, as I could be aware if there was a wait. Well, I called! They said he's running on time. I showed ten minutes prior to my appointment and waited and waited. over an hour and a half went by before I was taken back. When he finally came in, I explained my history and why I was there. He was (as many ot

    The most arrogant Physician that I have ever met. He spent more time abusing me because I have a very complex medical history than just doing his job and checking my ears. His rant is something that no patient should be exposed to. This guy needs mental help.

    Excellent... His staff got me in right away. I had an emergency and lost my hearing in my right ear. Doctor and his staff were aggressive with my treatment trying to save my hearing. There was a little wait during appointments, but when he saw me you know why. He takes his time with you and makes sure you are taken care of! I totally love his NP she is amazing!! His staff have been great and very sweet to me every time I have come in the office! Thank You !!!

    To see Dr Heiland has only 3 stars on this page is no justice for what this Dr of ENT truly is. This man is awesome and takes his time with everyone he see's. I seen him today for a problem other Dr's overlooked. And he fixed it. I live in Gilbert and would drive to see him because he's that good. Lucky to have him in AZ, Want the best?? He is the best!! NUFF SAID!!

    Cannot recommend. Doctor doesn't discuss risks vs benefits of procedures he recommends strongly. Didn't explain. Didn't listen. Have seen many ENT's over the years but this was the only really bad experience.
    in Phoenix, AZ |
    Have gone to Dr Heiland for years. He really knows his stuff, but the staff experience is horrible and they don't seem to care. Recently had a serious ear issue, tried to see him twice, scheduled weeks early. I waited 75+ minutes each time and had to leave without treatment each time. On 2nd attempt, raised the issue and was greeted by his rude office manager who pretty much said tough luck. I asked her to have the Dr. call me about it. Never heard back from anyone.

    Dr. Heiland is a great guy. Has a funny sense of humor and is very informational when asking him questions. I had both Tonsillectomy and nose plasty done using his services and the end result was terrific. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of any of these procedures. Thank you Dr. Heiland for your making my breathing better and sore throats almost non-existent.
    Very satsfied with all procedures and follow up care!
