Dr. Heidenfelder is probably the most attentive and caring physician I have ever met. He spends as much time with his patients as they need. I have had no issues with communicating with the office when needed. Anyone who complains about being able to reach Dr. Heidenfelder obviously has very little experience with most doctor offices!

Horrible! Saw me once after many canceled appointments. Prescribed medication that the pharmacy couldn't fill and he never returned their phone calls. I was left without medication and got very sick.

His only communication is via email. My pharmacy has trouble with this. He cancels most appointments. Says he does telephone appointments, but office says he doesnt do telephone appointments. Totally confused. Not getting responses to multiple emails i have sent with questions regarding confirmation of my appointment information. There is usually a baby the front office girl has when i come in. Dont know what thats about. I feel ignored, unimportant, and low on their priority.
