Ratings for Dr. Mark A. Heitner
I've been seeing Dr. Heitner for almost two years and I must say I am incredibly happy with the care I have received. He's a great listener and asks the right questions. I also appreciated his approach to helping you find the treatment and dose that is right for you.
I've been a patient of Dr. Heitner for almost 5 years and I highly recommend him. He has a wealth of knowledge- both in medicine and professionally in general. Dr. Heitner will always offer practical, straight forward steps/advice to treatment or living a better life in general. Some people have a tendency to overcomplicate life's challenges and if you're one of them, Dr. Heitner's rational, step-by-step feedback is very helpful. In all, I highly recommend him and will continue seeing him as a patient long term.
Dr. Heitner is a great doctor who truly cares about his patients. He listens to your concerns and has great solutions to your problems. He makes scheduling appointments a breeze and he will even see you over facetime if you can't be in his office for an appointment. I have been seeing him for 6 years. I highly recommend him.
Dr. H is great. He's really friendly and understanding. He has a great sense of humor and puts me at ease. He is easy to communicate with, and responds quickly to calls and refill requests. I have been seeing him for 2 years, and I recommend him very highly.
Best guy in the word to talk to about your issues. He really cares about you and helping you to fix what might be bothering you. Friendly, funny, very easy to talk to. I highly recommend you make an appointment to go check him out. You will know right away he is the perfect professional to help guide your through your rough or unpleasant times. Highly recommend.
Dr. Heitner is a knowledgeable doctor who always responds promptly to emails and phone calls. He offers reasonable, experienced, and safe advice on medication. During appointments, he listens closely to my questions and answers each one. However, I feel that often the doctor doesn't give the patient his opinion on what is the best course of treatment, and instead leaves the choice up to his patient. But having been to several psychiatrists in the Bay Area, I feel that this is the case with every psychiatrist I've had. It would be great if psychiatrists can use their experience of having seen many patients to offer their patients an educated opinion regarding how medication should be managed, whether dosage should be decreased and if so over how long of a period, the chances of relapse and how to prevent one.
I typically dread psychiatrists and especially finding a new one when I move. Between my personal experiences and my mom's experiences - the bad experiences definitely outweigh the good. So when I moved to the Bay Area where I do not have coworkers or friends to ask for referrals from, I was dreading finding a doctor. I called my insurance company and they sent me a list of participating doctors and that is how I found Dr. Mark. I have had nothing but a positive experience! He listens to what I have to say, we have worked through challenges with my medications and he is always quick to respond (by phone/email) when I have a question or concern. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who asked.
