De Pere, WI |
My daughter has been seeing Dr. Heckert for the last 8 years. When she was one we took her for her first appointment where we learned she was leagally blind. Dr. Heckert and his staff have been amazing and far exceeded our hopes and expectations! The first several years we had appointments every two weeks and the staff watched our family grow and we got to know each others families. Dr. Heckert and his staff are very thorough and informative. Everyone I've met that has seen him has praised him.
