What People Say About Dr. Michael Heru, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Several visits and this doc just pushes your problems and pain issues with referrals to specialists only. He also disregards the past diagnosis and problems people have, especially with chronic pain & only supports NEW referrals to those within his own personal network.Refuses to understand agony & poverty being a wall for many who cannot afford specialists copays a travel toll on sick people. He doesn't even remember what he does & says and uses CDC guidelines as LAW to avoid prescribing.

The first time I went to Dr Heru I had earlier been turned away by my precious doctor. Right away Dr Heru listened to me and my issues and diagnosed me. I've been to him a few times with different issues and every time he listens and is determined to make me feel better. He is a doctor who sticks with you until you're feeling your best and I've never found that anywhere else. Lucky to have him!

Dr Heru does not follow up when needed or take the time to go over test results. It takes multiple phone calls to get him to get back to you and he sends you all over the place to a million specialists without first doing his job as a primary care provider to see what is going on.
