What People Say About Dr. Melanie Hecker, MD

This review isn’t about Dr. Hecker, it’s about the P.A.. I will never come back to this practice again. I was treated SO rudely. I was chastised for questioning the fact that I feel the surgery site is infected. Her ego surpasses her compassion or any bedside manner. She reluctantly took a culture and talked down to me as if I was a child. I left there unnecessarily upset over something that I felt needed attention. If I treated clients like she treated me, I’d be out of business.

This is actually about one of her Pad I saw for a suspicious mole that I'd actually picked off for the most part. That's not the issue. If you want to be treated like a human being and with someone who has the ability to empathize or smile or spend more than 5 Seconds looking at you keep looking. The medical assistant at the front desk was very nice but she can know where near offset the way the PA treat you

I got my appointment mixed up and arrived 10 days early but the office staff work a miracle and got me in so I didn’t have to come back. The doctor and staff were caring and informative. I felt like a VIP rather then just an appointment.

Dr. Hecker is a great Dermatologist! She is always available to her patients and provides the latest technologies that will help patients. Currently, they are using low dose radiation to cure basil and squamous cell cancers. The treatment is painless, requires no cutting, leaves no scares or bleeding. The Hecker Dermatolgy office is professional and well run. The staff provides excellent communication. Appointments are very easy to obtain. Waiting time is minimal. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Hecker was amazing in the treatment of my recent bout with bezel cell cancer on my nose. Believe me once I was diagnosed with bezel cell I was very scared and concerned surgical treatment would really be disfiguring.. Dr. Hecker recommended a new radiation treatment their office just started to use. That treatment option worked great! Cancer gone and no scaring. Thanks Heckerderm! I am one happy patient. RP

I went to see Dr. Hecker after hitting road blocks with other dermatologists and was so pleased to finally be treated as a patient and not a number. I presented many different concerns. Dr. Hecker addressed each question and explained the pros and cons of different treatment options. She helped me complete a full skin care plan to address all my needs. And the office staff Melissa, Brittney, and Jannay were very nice and helpful. Great office!

The last few years I have been a patient of both doctor David Hecker and doctor Melanie Hecker. Both are very professionals, caring and know their expertise well. I have visited the Pompano Beach office for cosmetic and for health procedures. Recently I had a red rash appear from nowhere on my back, I called the office and they were able to see me right away. Doctor David prescribed a cream and the rash was gone in a few days. I alway have been very happy with the customer service provided by

I have been seeing Dr. Hercker for years. She is so committed to my health and concerned that I feel confident when I walk through the door. She always calls to check on me after I've had a procedure.
