He listens to me and gives me his professional opinion. He has never pushed surgery on me.

Misdiagnosed shoulder pain and performed shoulder surgery on my wife which did no good. Ended up being a spinal issue in the neck region and another surgery (by another doctor) was required to resolve the problem. In the mean time, my wife suffered for 18 months with severe pain, surgery and...more

Awesome doctor.. He knows his stuff!! Kind, caring and understanding. He puts his patients first. Dr. Heckman is #1 in my book. He has taken care of my ortho needs for several years and has done several surgeries to repair some injuries. I wouldn't go to anyone else
