He never really helped instead he would just smile shake his head like he was listening and wait until you where some speaking then the whole time be filling things out on his computer and then it feels like he rushes you out of the office with out the proper knowledge of what to do next being where to go for the next appointment for scheduling or flyers or papers or what to do with paper he does give you like a prescription paper he gave me I have never seen before he just let me walk out of the office with no questions asked or anything just parted ways out his room door after he wrote the paper for me, no knowledge and f what to do next... it has always been terrible at this office being his medical assistant or his reception they will cut you off and transfer your call to go to voicemail almost every time...

I have been with Dr Heidinger for several years and am quite happy with the care I have gotten from him. He is knowledgeable, listens to my perspective, and will work with me to get a favorable outcome. I addition, he is a very nice and good person. The new office in Grants Pass is very nice.

Dr. Heidinger is unique in that he offers treatment aimed at resolving the cause of one's ailment(s) rather than continually addressing symptoms. While symptoms may require attention, Dr. Heidinger educates patients on how to improve their situation, and often their overall health. Focusing on consistent lifestyle changes has been key to reducing the need for medication while under his care.

Would not recommend him to anyone! He miss diagnosed my husband saying that he had arthritis even after test after test came back negative and after several months of this a colleague suggested to test my husbands kidneys. Come to find out my husbands kidneys were failing and he is not in complete kidney failure and on dialysis and. I longer able to work or live a normal life. I was just sick and went into the walk in clinic and now apparently he works there now. And didn't diagnose me correctly
