Dr. Hegewald is amazing! Starting in May I started getting dizzy with fullness in my ears and head. I went and saw an ENT in Burien who barely let me get 2 words out before be immediately diagnosed me with Menieres. No tests or anything. He started me on several rounds of oral steroids and I was getting worse and worse. I started to lose faith and got extremely depressed with this incurable disease. I wanted a second opinion so I looked on health grades and found Dr. Hegewald. My first visit with him was in his Federal Way office. He was personable, polite and most importantly he listened. He told me he doesn't think it's Menieres and there are several tests to rule it out. He gave me hope. He scheduled my tests and within 3 weeks I was able to get in and get them done and rule out what I was initially diagnosed with. I've been feeling so much better and I feel like I'm getting my life back. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Hegewald is a great doctor. Super friendly and very knowledgeable. I needed to get my surgery done before the end of the year because of an insurance issue. Even though they were very booked they were able to get me in and get my deviated septum fixed. Having my septum correct has been fantastic. The surgery was over 2 years ago and I have had no issues and can breathe much better than anytime before in my life.
