Ratings for Dr. Thomas A. Heggen
I have been seeing Dr. Heggen for the 3-rd year, and I do like him a lot. He never poses as a big shot like some doctors but listens to you and answers questions. He goes along with your requests for certain blood and other tests to clarify and clear up any doubts and suspicions. Amazingly, he seems to know everything about any element in your blood and its effect on the body and the ways to modify them. In the past some doctors answered my questions about my blood work like this, "Let's retest in 3 months," - "but what do you think about these numbers doctor?" - "Let's retest,.." - "But still what do these numbers mean?" In 3 month I retested - same results. I called the doctor, "Doctor, so what's going on?" - "Make an appointment and see me" - "But I just saw you 3 month ago," - "How am I supposed to make any money?" (I swear that was Dr. Froderman's reply - Advocate Care in Libertyville). Finally, he did not know what to say, and it ended up in him telling me to find another doctor (easy solution). Dr. Heggen answered my every question about every element and made recommendations that changed some readings to the best in a short time. IMO, he is a very good doctor.
Dr. Heggen is the most wonderful and patient doctor ever! He spends equal time with all his patients and listens to them. If you are looking to find him he has opened a spa called etrnal med spa in Shorewood, Il. He left Tomasiks practice and is not able to practice with in 25 miles of Tomasiks office. Thats BS if you ask me...HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR EVER!!!!
Please post how we can get in touch with Dr. Heggen. Tomasik's office will not give out his current contact info, and I am pregnant and want Heggen or Egan to deliver my baby again, not Tomasik. Heggen had been my doc forever, and he left during my first pregnancy in 2008. Egan delivered my son.
Dr. Heggen listens! I had food poison when I was pregnant and he sent me to the hospital right away for being so dehydrated. My sons heart rate kept dropping and an emergency c-section was done. Another doctor did not listen and told me to take medicine that made me more dehydrated. I trust him and Dr. Egan completely. They are a great team! I am happy I went in to the office for a second opinion.
I have been treated by Dr Heggen for a couple yrs and he has been THE BEST doctor I have ever gone to. I've needed a hysterectomy for yrs due to ovarian cysts since age 11 and severe endo but didn't trust any of the Drs in the past. He performed my hysterectomy March 2008 at age 44. No pain, no complications. AMAZING! One of the best decisions I've ever made. I have heard so many horror stories. I tell people all the time that I honestly had nearly no pain. Only very faint cramping. Dr Heggen has been nothing but professional, courtious and truly caring. I would...and have...recommended him to many. I would not have had such a procedure done if it were not for him. In my opion, he is the "best" doctor.
Dr. Heggen is the alltime best Ob/Gyn doctor you could possily find..His knowledge & bed side manner is excellent. If you want a doctor who will treat you like he's known you all his life, he's your man. He will talk to you like you're a family member & give you his own advice. Dr. Heggen delivered my son in 2007 & was so caring & compassionate...Can't say enough about him..
I have been a patient of his for as long as he has been in Joliet...at least 22 years. Followed him from another practice. He did a laproscopic hysterectomy on me last fall. It could have not gone smoother. Very caring. Treats you like you are his family or friend. Very professional care. Have recomended him to many people. I also seee him for non-gynecological care and he is great.
