A totally great physician. IGNORE BAD REPORTS. He has alifetime of experience and is a gentleman and scholar. He explained hemorrhoid procedure in detail and fixed my problem. EXCELLENT!
in Palm Springs, CA |
Dr. Heilpern has a wealth of clinical experience and is a gracious caring physician. He has kept up with technology and the latest treatments for gastrointestinal diseases. Nothing can take the place of the experience he brings to his medical practice. I went there expecting to have an immediate procedure, but he did not think it was necessary at this time. Many practitioners would have done it anyway just to collect the revenue, but he did not. He prescribed medication and a care regime.
