Very upfront about expectations - I had disc problems repaired (terminology?)- excellent after-care and follow up support. L4 and L5 fused, no issues 8 years later. He had an excellent support system and I was walking the day of surgery, went home about 4 days after? Response to questions after surgery was really good- his explanations were very clear and helpful. By now his techniques are probably different but I was very happy with the results even after this time-

I've been a patient of Dr Heim for perhaps 7-8 years. He's always been patient, insightful, informative and respectful of each of my situations. If he feels another physician in his group can better handle an issue (spine/lower back, knee, hip, etc), he has never hesitated to make that recommendation. He's very involved in physical exercise and well being and I have long thought that gives him another level of experience and knowledge on which he draws.
