In the summer of 2011 I was being diagnosed & treated for what turned out to be multiple myeloma. He was very slow to make treat/diagnose decisions and extremely slow to see you when you need help. As a result, my kidneys quit & I ended up in the hosp. He was suspended in 7/14. Is he now back practicing?!?! Dangerous

Dr. Hecker saw me very quickly when my cancer came back. He explained my alternatives and we went forward with his recommended course of treatment. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Hecker and his staff.
