I have not been with Dr. Heffernan very long, but I wish I had found her many years ago. She is very thorough, very informative and actually cares about the well being of a patient.She has found so many things on me in 3 to 4 weeks than the Doctors I have had for the last ten yrs.Very knowledegable and good side manners.Very people friendly and never makes me have anxiety when I see a her.If I have a wait, I don't mind because I know she is caring for patients that need her help and want to be explained as to what is wrong. I love her and I would never change her for anything or anybody.
I'm just old enough to remember what a family doctor offered the patient. I never expected her to remember me but she does. Always on the alert for "things to watch for" followed by don't hesitate to call. It's like having a knowledgeable friend. I've sucessfully recommended her and yet to have one not agree that she is a rare gem.
I was with another doctor for one year and felt I wasn't being properly cared for. Dr. Heffernan took the time to discuss my case and offered encouragement to me. Her medication worked quickly to solve my issue and I was so grateful. I had to wait, but the wait was so worth it. Great bedside manner. Caring. Treated me as a human being.
Dr. Heffernan is a wonderful family physician who I owe a GREAT deal of gratitude. I was referred to her by a relative a few years ago, and I have to say that she is a very thorough doctor. She is very sweet and intelligent and will go the extra mile to be most helpful in treatment, whatever the case.
Dr. Heffernan is truly one of the best physicians I have ever been too. She saved my husband's life and I have been going to her for my medical care for the last 10 years. She might run a little late - so bring a book or call first - but she is remarkable with genuine caring and a wealth of knowledge. I love her!
