Excellent doctor! Had knee replacement then hip replacement 11 months later. I have complete trust in him and would recommend him to anyone. He not only took great care of me medically, he cares about me as a person. My quality of life has improved so much, don’t be afraid of joint replacement, don’t put it off. I credit Dr. Heckler with saving my life, as I was in so much physical pain that I had sunk into serious depression. He’s an awesome doc and a wonderful person!

Something just didn't feet right about his pushing me into joint replacement surgery. So I checked with another surgeon who was rated highly and sure enough, I did not need surgery yet, we would start with shots and maybe clean up the meniscus in the knee later if needed. GET A SECOND OPINION.

I have never met a more rude person. Unwilling to spend any time with my wife, the patient. She asked him to answer a question and he actually said no and walked out. We were in shock.

Heckler seems knowledgeable, but he did a TOTAL HACK JOB on my hip! He put in too large of a prosthetic which lengthened my leg. I have to wear a lift in my shoe now. I have a lot of pain from all of my muscles, tendons and IT band being stretched, my leg will collapse at times. He has totally blown this off. My experience at Grandview hospital was nothing short of a nightmare, beginning in pre-op and throughout my 4 day stay there never again! Do yourself a HUGE favor and run the other way
