    Terrible doctor, waited 45 minutes and he spend 5 minutes with you. Chief c/o that was 2 fingers without feeling, now more fingers without feelings. As a doctor he sent you off by saying "it takes time to recover, there's nothing I can do". Can he understand, the symptoms are getting worse not better!

    I have been a patient of Midland orthopaedic off and on since 2009, this is also when I first met Dr. Heller. In 2015 I fell and tore both rotator cuffs and I hurt several other body parts.Dr.Strugala suggested I speak with Dr. Heller, I was afraid of surgery, but after several month's more of therapy I agreed to the surgery. I am glad I did. I must say Dr. Heller is a no nonsense type of guy he knows his business, and is highly recommended. Thank you Lenda M. Mason

    The waiting room was filthy and the staff not interested. Long wait and long wait in examing room. The doctor walked in sat down and grabbed the arm that had the rotator cuff operation He then pushed it over my head and it appears to be permanently damaged now. This lapse of judgement seems to be how he operates by other internet evaluations. I just am sad I didn't read BEFORE I had one of the worst experiences ever in my 64 years of life. Please if you value honor......read about this person

    Dr. Heller was thorough and explained all aspects of my osteoarthritis issues. He gave me options and presented the possible pros and cons of each option. I was thrilled with the outcome of all of my treatment and I felt knowledgeable about the decisions we made regarding my arthritis issues. I have had a thumb joint replacement, LRTI, a fusion on an end joint and a replacement on the middle joint. All were successful and resolved pain issues.
