in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Heff is incredibly down to earth, intelligent, and listened to all of my questions and concerns. I'd recommend him because he comes off more as a doctor than a plastic surgeon. I know that doesn't make much sense, but there's a trustworthiness and class about him that sets him apart. I cannot recommend him enough.

Long, long waits for everything and extremely unreliable when it comes to discussing cost of care with you.
I do apologize for the long wait, I wish I had better control over this. Unfortunately this is the limitation of working at an academic institution. I am not sure what you mean about the cost of care. I am not really involved in this, whether it be cosmetic or through insurance. This is dictated by employer and if you have specific questions I would be happy to help you.

waited over an hour for my first visit. I was interested in a medical consult about options for eye surgery. The office staff was eager to ask for cash up front and to take pictures for possible insurance claim. I refused both requests until I met with the doctor.When I asked the doctor what he thought about my condition, his response was "the eyebrows are the parts that have hair and the eyelids go over the eyes" Really?? Very unprofessional.
I apologize for the confusion, but I was trying to describe the difference between eyelid and brow ptosis. Often this is very confusing for patients. In my practice, I treat brow ptosis, but not eyelid ptosis. If you are interested in "medical" options for eyelid surgery, the first thing your insurance company will ask for is pictures. This is why my office staff wanted to take them. I wish you the best of luck in your search for a doctor that can meet your expectations.

Dr. Heffelfinger may well be a fine ENT, but I never saw him. I was kept waiting for 2.5 hours in the office. Every time I asked the nurse for status, it was you're next! ...he'll be right there! in a way that suggests this is the norm. By 4 PM, after not seeing the Dr for a 1:30 appt, I had to leave. A half a day wasted. Based on this, the office seems badly run, and patients' time not respected.
in Princeton, NJ |
He completed my Rhinoplasty and Turbinectomy. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. He is so professional and really has your best interest at heart and wants to make you look and feel your best. And he does! Thanks to him I love my new nose and it is more functional and attractive. I 115% recommend him.
