Ratings for Dr. Eric G. Heegaard
Dr. Heegaard is a phenomenal doctor for women's care. He is a specialist in excision and treatment of endometriosis. I suffered with terrible pain and unknowns for 3 years from so many doctors until I found Dr. Heegaard. From the moment he walked into the room for my consultation he had a plan, he had questions but more importantly he wanted to know me. He touched base on several aspects of my life to verify that the symptoms were due to endo. He then also brought up the fact that I also have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Together we came up with a treatment plan and I am thrilled to say that after my surgery with him, I was pain free! It was a huge relief to not have to use the ER anymore as well as so many other daily tasks that were impossible before the surgery. I owe my health to Dr. Heegaard and his staff. You can't find a more professional and personable care team in the midwest.
Dr. Heegaard's skill and knowledge is hard to come by in the world of OBGYN's. More importantly, he listens and cares. After so many terrible experiences with inept OBGYN's and getting nowhere for a solution I was able to find Dr. Heegaard. I had severe endometriosis and other doc's 'solutions' for my case told me they knew nothing about the disease and were not skilled in excision. Dr. Heegaard is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. I was able to work with Heegaard and decide what I wanted to do with my body, not what other doctors told me to do. I am forever grateful to Dr. Heegaard for being able to excise all the endo. He gave me my life back. This is a horrible disease which affects so many women and I was lucky to find him when I did. He listens and understands better than any other doc I have ever seen. I would recommend him for any woman experiencing gynecological issues.
I have lived in several cities and have gone to many doctors with the same complaints. I always left feeling more misunderstood than before. It always seemed like I was just getting blown off or told that the pain I felt couldn't possibly be as bad as I was describing. I finally found Dr.Her card and it may be the best thing that's happened regarding my health. He listened and acknowledged every symptom and quickly got an ultrasound that showed multiple fibroids, endometriosis, and cysts. My ovaries have become glued to my uterus and I was having a lot of pain. We are taking care of this problem and I feel safe with his expertise. If you need to find a good doctor, go to Heegard.
Dr. Heegaard is a gifted and compassionate endometriosis surgeon. I call him a miracle worker! His decision making and skill with the DaVinci Robot has relieved my chronic pain, even after 3 previous laparoscopies and a hysterectomy. I remember my first visit with him after my previous surgeon retired. I was nervous trying to find someone as superb, but he instantly put me at ease. He quickly showed me he wanted to partner with me and knew a lot about endometriosis. At age 31, he successfully excised my endometriosis and severe adhesions, while sparing my ovary. When I ended up in the ER a year later in crippling pain again, he adjusted his schedule so I could have surgery the next day. I am in debt to him. I also rely on him to manage my woman's health needs. Life with endometriosis is very hard, but thanks to him it is much easier. His passion to help women with endometriosis drives him to devote endless hours to changing the trajectory of our lives. Thank you Dr. Heegaard!
Dr Heegaard is the first doctor that listened to me since my previous doctor retired. He listened to my concerns and actually cared about what I thought. Let's just say I was trying to tell my previous doctor that I had endo and he convinced the pain was from PCOS even when I told him I did not feel like it was. I finally looked up endo doctors online and was blessed to come accross DR Heegaard's name. I scheduled an appointment right away and he LISTENED TO ME!! I had surgery and it turns out that I had severe endo which it was all removed. I am looking forward to less painful periods.
Dr Heegaard performed the Davinci to remove all of my fibroids. He was the first doctor to known that in order for me to carry a pregnancy in the future I had to have these fibroids removed. This was after my last OB. did not make the suggestion and I had two miscarriages. So now we are on our journey to achieve another pregnancy using DE/IVF and look forward to having Eric be our OB.
I am nineteen years old and had been suffering from chronic pelvic pain for the majority of my teen years, until I met Dr. Heegaard. After multiple dismissal of symptoms from numerous doctors regarding my pelvic pain, and being treated as though I were crazy or a drug seeker, I finally found a specialist I thought looked promising. Dr. Heegaard was the first physician to ever really listen and help with the excruciating pain I was experiencing on a regular basis and performed a laparoscopy with excision of endometriosis on February 6, 2013. His diagnosis of endometriosis, although frightening, has brought me and my family a tremendous amount of relief and gratitude. I would recommend Dr. Heegaard to any friends or family experiencing any gynecological problems and will continue to see him for the duration of my endometriosis treatment. Thank you so much Dr. Heegaard for being the first doctor to listen, understand, and be so supportive.
