First rate physician. Knowledgeable in her specialty, I've always had a very positive office experience, and her office staff has always been courteous and responsive.

I have been going to Dr. Hecker for a little over a year now. The first time I went to her my diabetes was REALLY out of control and she was not happy about my eating habits and blood sugar/ A1C. Over the year things are looking better with the right medications and better eating habits. She is a really nice lady but doesn't beat around the bush and will definitely put you in your place if needed. I would recommend her to anyone struggling with their diabetes/thyroid.

Not helpful if you are looking for answers for an undiagnosed condition. She ran labs on me and when my levels were "normal" she dismissed me all together.

I thought Dr Hecker was a great MD. I have been a patient for at least 3 years. The last 2 times I saw her, she was literally retching at me. She couldn't even look at me in the eyes. On the follow up visit, she never looked at me. She was very unprofessional with me. She knows what she said and how she made me feel. She humiliated me. She continued filling my RX's for a whole year, before the RN called to acknowledge my absence. I will never recommend an MD who looks down at their patients.

Hey I really don't want to give negative review but the billing department that I had a talk with is so rude and disgusting. They need to be nice for its customers.
in Covington, TX |
My diabetes was out of control really bad before I had come to see Dr Hecker. She has got it leveling out. I am very pleased with her bed side manner. I have had several doctors try to get it under control. She is a fantastic doctor.

I have been with Dr. Hecker for the last 3-4 years and she has helped me with not only thyroid and finding out that I have Hashitmotos but now has taken over my diabetes and has gotten it on track as well. The office staff at the front when you arrive not a fan of AT ALL, love the girl who checks you out and assigns your next visits. She is nice and always has a smile and that is helpful when you are dealing with medical issues.

She was rude and walked out while I was asking questions. It appeared that she wasn't knowledgeable about my disorder.
