      Dr Heslin was cold and indifferent to my wife. When she was in surgery he called me on the phone and told me he had found more cancer than expected and he would sew her up and do chemotherapy. I ask him what about the mass in her colon, that was the reason she was having surgery in the first place was to have the mass removed. His response Oh I remember now we will cut her open. Heslin told my wife she would die from this cancer. She's still alive and doing well. Heslin not operate on my dog

      Could not have been more pleased! He was the most caring, friendly and encouraging Dr I have seen. From first apt through post op apt I felt I had the best possible dr. Thank God my mass was benign and when he called me personally to tell me the good news I could hear true excitement in his voice! I truly believe he cares for his patients......
