in Robert, LA |
Awesome, I had a big chunk of wood (big splinter) in my hand. Trying to avoid the emergency room I went to the after hour clinic only to hear them say I needed to go to the hospital. I wasn't doing that so I got online and found the first surgeon I could find, Dr. Ludwig Heintz. I was able to make an appointment for the next day. In less than an hour I was processed, the wood was out of my hand and I was on the road back home. Him & his entire team was awesome. Oh great looking nurse too.

The VA Medical Clinic, referred me to Dr. Heintz. Dr. Heintz addressed my test results as well as my concerns with care and professionalism. I left feeling at ease.
Mandeville, LA |
The office staff is very friendly and accommodating . I received an office appt. 1 week after calling about my problem. During the visit, Dr. Heintz was thorough, professional and caring. He allowed plenty of time to discuss all of the issues that concerned me. He also made sure that I had a clear understanding of the surgery and recovery period. The surgery was scheduled for the following week and everything went according to plan. I'm now recovering very well.
