This was my first visit to Dr. Hecker for my Third Class Aviation Medical review. He took the time to review both my past and present information and then performed all necessary testing required by the FAA. Very pleasant to talk with and has a through knowledge of the FAA requirements. Receptive to all my questions and he made me feel very relaxed. I'll be going back for sure.
