Ratings for Dr. Eileen E. Heffernan
Due to the fact this office is not up with the times electronically inhibits it from running effectively. Trying to get a refill of a prescription takes weeks, a referral....forget about it. The office wants to collect a co-pay on everything even well being visits and follow ups at the Dr's request. The doctor runs WAY WAY behind, leaving you with little time to discuss issues or get a proper exam if you have an afternoon appointment. Very often she will leave the office without seeing all of her patients for the day, keep in mind you already paid your co-pay and do not get to even see the doctor. This office seems to be understaffed and overbooked, which leaves patients wanting more....
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.
