Dr.Heuer is an excellent Doctor. He has been a god send for my mother. Mom was certain to lose her leg due to vascular disease. Dr. Heuer acceped her as a patient and has saved her leg. She still has a way to go but she's well on her way. Thank you Dr. Heuer for your hard work and dedication to your patients. Your one awesome doctor.

Dr Heuer seems to care a great deal about my condition and explained the procedure , so that I could understand it.

I was very disappointed with Dr. Heuer, before having a lung biopsy I was having second thoughts, most doctors would be very understanding and try to reassure you that everything will go ok or something on that line, but, Dr. Heuer instead slams his clipboard down and says"You're wasting my time and my staff's, if you're not going to have the procedure!" I ended up having it done but, since I've second guessed his results!! Absolutely doesn't have a good bedside manner!!!

First impressions--lasting impressions. I live in a different time zone from the office so got a little confused on my appointment time and arrived early. The receptionist was rude, unpleasant and otherwise obnoxious. When I gave my name, she looked at the computer and said, Well,, you're early! You'll just have to wait! I was was OK with it. Anyone like that in the health care system need lessons in manners or a new job. I gave this 1 star because the nurse was very professional
