Ratings for Dr. Stella Hecker
I was referred for her for a second opinion regarding my parathyroid and high calcium. I have seen 3 endocrinologists in the past. Dr Hecker went over my records thoroughly and she explained to me clearly what is going and what her recommendations are. I finally feel like I have the right answer
I have seen Doctor Hecker for a little over a year now. She actually caught and diagnosed my Thyroid Cancer. I went in for a biopsy on my thyroid, (her and her nurse perfomed the biopsy very well and I felt little to no pain btw) she advised they would call in a week to schedule a follow-up to review the biopsy. Dr. Hecker ended up calling me the next day after there office hours advising she just got the results and I needed to schedule to have surgery to have my thyroid removed as it was cancerious. In about 8 days I was in surgery. It was a really scary time but during the process I could appreciate how fast Doctor Hecker worked to get me scheduled and I was able to reach the nurse 24/7. If it was something the nurse couldn't answer she would ask Dr. Hecker directly to let me know. They let me know exactly what is coming up and what I can expect. I see Doctor Hecker every 3 months and I appreciate her being on top of monitoring me. She is very thorough and yes very direct. Some ppl may take it as being rude but she tells you what u need to know. She will be in Endo as long as I can keep her.
My daughter's thyroid problem was misdiagnosed so she has been on the wrong medication for years and it is a type of medication that commonly makes Type I diabetics sick. She never received the correct type of check up for her feet. She was to blame for all problems,she did not receive any support or information. The doctor spent very little time with my daughter at each appointment and did not listen or address any physical concerns beyond the recent A1C. My daughter is now with a new doctor that is supportive, provides information, is treating the whole person and that is how we know about the misdiagnosis, etc.
I was referred to her by a neurosurgeon for a second opinion after seeing 2 other endocrinologists. I finally understood what is going on. She was ver thorough. She even went over my records from the 2 other doctors including the labs and other work-ups. I don't understand these negative reviews because Dr Hecker was very warm and friendly. She makes you feel comfortable
