Dr. Heitner

"I've been a patient of Dr. Heitner's for 4 yrs. The doctor I was seeing prior (3yrs), was inexperienced. I knew at my 1st appt w/ Dr. Heitner that he was exactly what I was needed. He goes above and beyond for his patients. For me, he provided books, lifestyle habits, etc. that he encourages me to try, so that I stay proactive about the underlying issues. He clearly explains pros/cons and alt's to any medication we consider. He even brainstorms solutions for current problems & helps solve them."

"Dr Heitner is insightful, able to read between the lines, and caring. I was dealing with depression and anxiety after a breakup. The monthly sessions and medication have helped me get my feet back under me and see my options more clearly. He gives clear and actionable feedback. I appreciate Dr Heitner for sharing his insights as well as practical suggestions for living my best life."

I've been a patient of Dr. Heitner for almost 5 years and I highly recommend him. He has a wealth of knowledge- both in medicine and professionally in general. Dr. Heitner will always offer practical, straight forward steps/advice to treatment or living a better life in general. Some people have a tendency to overcomplicate life's challenges and if you're one of them, Dr. Heitner's rational, step-by-step feedback is very helpful. In all, I highly recommend him and will continue seeing him.

I have met with Dr. Heitner for a little over a year now with exceptional results. His initial diagnosis of depression was right on. We discussed a number of different medications and decided on one with the idea we would try another if we did not see the results we were looking for. I honestly feel better than I have in years! I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Heitner.
