What People Say About Dr. William Hefley Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Cannot in all honesty rate him, since I never laid eyes on him but I will rate the overall experience. Drove for 2.5 hours to see him, waited in his waiting room for another 1.5 hours and then in the exam room for an extra 30 min at least and then did not see him at all, just his PA. I did not make an appointment with his PA, so no I would not recommend trying to see this physician since he has no interest at all with your problems, doesn't even bother to see you.

Dr Hefley replaced my right hip in Oct 2016. My recovery was fast and mostly pain free. I waited in pain for 1 1/2 years because I was afraid of the surgery. Dr H was calming and did an excellent job. Wish I hadn't waited. Highly recommend him.

I was pleased with my knee surgery that was done by Dr. Hefley and his Physician Assistant. However, during my stay at Arkansas Surgical Hospital, I was not pleased at all with the food that was given to me.

He moves quickly through his office calls, but has a PA who can answer all questions. I am totally pleased with his excellent work & the AR Surgical Hospital.
