This is my husband's Parkinsons Doctor. He's the most informative, pleasant, knowledgeable man I have ever met. He knows his stuff and makes us both feel very comfortable every time we visit. HE also has a great sense of humor and altho my husband's Parkinson's is getting slowly worse, Dr. Hedera tells us in the nicest manner so we know what to expect. He also takes all the time we need and answers ALL questions we ask in a manner that we can understand. All in all he is the GREATEST!

I wouldn't send an enemy to this doctor. Bedside manner was atrocious. His thoroughness was horrible, wasn't even paying attention to what he was doing. Wouldn't answer anything I asked. He was supposed to do special testing "spoke to my regular neurologist & told him he would do the test " but he did not. Absolute worst doctor I've seen. Didn't even do half of the regular test my neurologist does. DO NOT TRUST THIS DOCTOR waited almost a year to see him. Was supposed to do labs but DIDN'T!
