Patient Reviews (7)
I drove 2 hrs each way, was in the patient room for maybe 1 1/2 hrs, seen by a very friendly and sweet nurse, a cold but efficient PA, and finally Dr. Heil. He said he did not have time to give me the two injections, so I will drive back again tomorrow, 2 hours each way, and hope to get the injections and some pain relief. So no stars earned for a very disappointing appointment.

Dr Heil only wants to give you injections to make money from your insurance. He doesn't take time to listen to you . He could care less if you are in pain or not . I would not recommend Dr .Heil to my worst enemy . Worst doctor I have ever seen .

He was very rude and acted like he did not care what I had to say! Would not recommend anyone going to him.

Lacking in compassion and care for this patients who may be suffering. His staff are like the gestapo and even getting checked in is an ordeal. Dr Heil himself seems very unconcerned for anything more than himself.

He is cold and totally arrogant and doesn't listen to a word you say. It's really sad to see a Dr that doesn't care about his patients but that's him. I would recommend another dr if you want to be treated fairly.

Even though he was over 30 min late to see me for my first appointment, I would highly recommend his as a your pain Doctor. He was very caring and took time with me to listen to all I had to say, I have seen 2 orthopedic doctors that told me pretty much to work through the pain and there was nothing they could do for me. With Dr Heil we have a plan to at least try to manage my pain. Again this was my first visit and have extreme faith in his to help me with pain.

Dr Heil is very knowledgeable and friendly. I feel he makes recommendations of procedures based on listening to the patient, which to me is very important.
