Dr. Heimbecker is a caring doctor who is very sensitive to my health needs and understands the private manner in which a woman's health issues should be addressed. Because I want to help you in your quest to find the right doctor, please know that he and his team is truly dedicated to enhancing a woman's quality of life. He helped me through the difficult ordeal of having to have a hysterectomy and I am HAPPIER, HEALTHIER & STRONGER for it. I thank God for allowing him to restore my health!

I honestly wouldn't recommend for any of my family or friends to go see him. I feel like he doesn't really follow up and go the extra mile to help his patients ( at least in my experience) & when I kept calling about test results or any concerns I felt like his staff were annoyed . I also feel like he doesn't take his patients' concerns seriously because he thinks he knows everything.

Sanford is so lucky to have great doctors like Dr. Heimbecker. He is so friendly and follows up to make sure you are OK. His staff is so wonderful too!! They went the extra mile when my insurance company was having issues the night before my surgery to make sure everything processed right.

Dr. Heimbecker is extremely professional and personable. I would recommend him as a physician because of his attention to detail, extensive knowledge and experience; and lastly but just as important, his kindness. The care I have received has been nothing short of exceptional. The other office staff are inviting and respectful, and I am relieved to have found such a great office to go to.

Bc I FEEL DR PAUL HEIMBECKER; OF SANFORD,NC HAS TO MUCH ON; HIS PLATE AND HE IS NOT NOT NOT NOT; NOT A PATIENT DR; & NOT NOT NOT NOT A COMPASSIONATE DR AS HE USE2BE(B4 HE GOT HIS OWN; PRACTICE) I WOULD NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT RECOMMEND DR PAUL HEIMBECKER OF>^>SANFORD NC!!!!!!
I'm sorry this patient had a bad experience at our office. I can certainly say that this is not the normal experience. I stopped delivering babies 14 years ago and opened my own GYN office in hopes to be able to focus on complex gynecologic problems with less interruptions. I feel I spend a lot of time with my patients and I try not to make them feel rushed. I have been complimented on several occasions as to the time and detail I take in explaining medical conditions. We will try to improve.
