Ratings for Dr. Margaret Hecht
Dr. Hecht was my mother’s doctor for a period of time. When I took Mom in for her appts, I was always impressed by her tender, helpful, and knowledgeable care. If there were any questions, she would return phone calls to give the answers. Mom had gone to her for years. When it became necessary for me to take her, I saw first-hand the excellent quality care Mom was given by both the Dr. Hecht and her staff. Thank you.
I personally switched physicians after seeing this 'doctor' a few times over a year or two. She has an atrocious bedside manner—my surgeon has a better personality, which should say it all. I may have given 2-3 stars, however, her lack of common sense & multi-year failure to diagnose a chronic condition in one of my parents is unforgivable. While she claims it 'wouldn't have mattered,' I can assure you, it matters a whole h-e-doublehockeysticks of a lot to me. They're years that not only can I not get back, they are years that I was unable to look in to gene therapy, stem cell therapy & other things along those lines. The fact that I had suspected this condition & asked about it for several years is also a testament to her failure. Why? I'm in my late 20s. My original career plan was to go in to nursing. The fact that my expertise is now in beauty & digital media, not medicine, and I was more on top of it than she? Really? The only reason she was not sued is because my parent could not emotionally handle a trial & all that comes with it. I don't care about money—I care very much that this not happen to anyone else. Worse, there's no doubt in my mind that it already has. Ultimately, the emotional distress, guilt and the illnesses I've endured thanks to her non-diagnosis has cost far more than any amount of money could help. Avoid. If she's volunteering somewhere, just run. I don't trust her in the least.
