Ratings for Dr. Aaron C. Heide
Horrible. Left me with 11K bills that I will not be able to pay (will ask him to pay, in court), as their office refused to assist me with providing documentation of medical necessity of test procedures prescribed, treating me like a second class person and told me that this doctor "never " calls patients back. Also, after I contacted him in writing asking to assist, in retaliation cancelled my appointment without notifying me, and changed it to unprofessional Nurse Practitioner instead (who didn't identify herself as NP until I pressed her). No notification was made for appointment cancellation and I drove there for 1 hours while being sick. Subhuman treatment at this office, beware of them. Also, this doctor prescribed me Lamictal with can have fatal side effects without telling me about this side effect, luckily I learned about side effects from a newspaper (!) before I started taking it.
Dr Heidi has moved to Reno, NV with out letting his patients know! I called the office to schedule a visit and all phone numbers were disconnected!! His new phone # in Reno 775-770-6465. I can't believe he would do this to his patients. Not even a letter was sent.
This doctor told me i should be having brain surgery and but that he wasn't going to because it was Christmas, and then his whole practice shut down. Meanwhile its been almost a year and I have yet to have another Dr. look at whatever he saw, and save my life, because no one believes that he told me during the test that he was cheating so he didn't have to send me to surgery,.
I think Dr Heide is bi-polar. He probably started out as a good Dr but now has too many irons on the fire...looking for the get rich quick scheme ect. . He should focus on neurology not PT/OT, nutrition, seminars, ect... His office is the Worst disorganized mess I've ever seen. Takes months to get a call back weeks to get a hold of reception to make an appointment this is true. His office manager is on the verge of a mental breakdown. Something is very wrong. Heard he also lost his priveleges at hospital. Treat yourself first Dr Heide then maybe you can truly and consistently help others.
Nepotism in the office referring you to his wife for services is not good business. Although I was diagnosed by two previous neurologists, Dr. Heide insisted they were wrong and ordered expensive tests to prove it. When they came back consistent with the other neurologists he still denied my condition and said it was due to me being old and overweight! He lost interest in me and became more interested in my relative who has a brain tumor and had driven me to the appointment. He also divulged private information about other patients by name. I should have known this narcissist was a mistake when he ran a video of his own seminars in his waiting room. His ego is bigger than justified. Staff turnover and poor training at the front desk made it impossible to get clear information.
Out of all the doctors I've seen, he is BY FAR the worst. He's arrogant, unhelpful, and seems to not want to find a cure for my problems. He likes to draw blood, the girls who drew mine joked that he has an 8 vile minimum, which is true. They were worried I was going to pass out from it. He really seems like he doesn't care about his patients.
I had an ultra sound by a guy named Rich. He condemned me for using Imitrex shots, and couldn't believe a Dr actually prescribed them. (BTW...they have been on the market over 20 years) He also told me he was sure I was misdiagnosed with Cluster headaches by three previous Neurologists. This was after knowing me for approximately 2 mins. He was arrogant and non educated. I will not be going back.
I saw Dr. Heide for multiple issues, on of which is a painful neuralgia, he refused to give me medication for this condition or treat it at all as he said I would become addicted to the meds. The medication in question is carbamazipine, which is an anti-seizure medication that also helps the particular of neuralgia I have, and one that you can not become addicted too in any way. About 6-9 months later I started seeing a different neurologist who started me on the carbamazipine right away, within a very short time the neuralgia started to get better, after years off suffering, and after at least 6 months of suffering when it could have been helped with this medication that Dr. Heide refused to provide.
