Dr. Heiss took immaculate care of our daughter and was generous with his time spent with our family discussing her needs. He is dedicated to his profession and a modern surgeon with tons of experience. We are truly greatful that we had him operate on our child, and believe he works out of the best children's hospital in Atlanta. Excellent care, excellent recovery, excellent results!

While Dr. Heiss comes highly recommended clinically, his office staff makes working with him nearly impossible. One mess-up after another, led to us having no choice but to abandon our child's surgery at the last minute and seek the assistance of another surgeon. Extremely unacceptable and resulted in a waste of 60 days time.
