Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Heyman "My educational background is in the arts/music (my first love) prior to getting my medical degree and my orthopedic training from NYU medical Center. My hand/microsurgical fellowship was at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard, which I completed in 1991 prior to relocating to Denver, where I have been in practice since. My approach to treating patients is simple...imagine that I am the patient, and imagine how I would want to be treated. And only do what is necessary."

I was pleased with Dr. Haymen. My condition is unusual and he said we would wait and watch the hand, not jump into surgery as it may heal without it. I appreciate that. He is kind and thorough.

Did not diagnoise a fracture of my right pinky from an x-ray I brought w/me from urgent care.
