The doctor was great, funny, and very helpful. But, my god the secretary is beyond rude. God forbid you ask for her to repeat any information of dates and times so you can ensure you have the correct information. Then when surgery is scheduled and you have so many instructions thrown at you, she gets evidently very mad if you ask her to repeat something. I get if I asked multiple times, but repeating something once should not cause that kind of reaction. Recently called regarding a voicemail she left and she just says "I didn't leave a voicemail saying that" in a frustrated tone. I literally have you on tape??? Overall, doctor was worth it. But, I wish there was a different secretary.

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).
