I visited Dr Heilizer at first, but then switched to another specialist and had a procedure done. After that I came to dr Heilizer to hear his opinion on the matter. He evidently got mad that I had a surgery with another doctor, refused to look at me and said that I go back to my new doc (which I had obviously done before and just needed a second opinion).
