Dr. Hefner has been our PCP (primary care physician) every time we've lived in the Louisville area. We are absolutely satisfied with the care we have received under Dr. Hefner's care and look foward to having him back as our PCP in a month or so.

Dr. Hefner took time to explain everything he was doing and what he saw on test results. He took time to give perspective.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hefner for about 10 years, I absolutely love him, but lately I can't seem to get into to see him for 3-4 weeks out. Another doctor recommended I see my primary care because of some health issues I've been having and he was very concerned, I explained this girl scheduling, soonest they can "get me in" is 4 weeks out. It's getting absurd that you have to wait 30 days to see your primary care physician. Very frustrated and ready to start looking for a new doctor!!

Dr. Hefner is one of the most in-compassionate doctors I have ever encountered. He does not care about his patients just the money and his own narcissistic needs. He give Baptist East a very bad name!!!
