Dr. Heres is a busy man, going from one patient to the other. he did take the time when it was my turn to explain everything he was going to do just when he was going to do it too. so you knew when you were going to feel pain and when it was just about over. when you are in a position that you can't see what is going on this is very helpful. glad I change my care from st. margarets to him for pain management, I know when I leave I will get some relief.

Dr. Heres and his staff were absolutely wonderful. I had to get a shot in my spine and I was extremely frightened. They made me feel very comfortable and safe. the procedure was done quickly with explanations of what was being done every step of the way. I was extremely impressed with the care I received and I highly recommend him and his staff.

I found Dr. Edward Heres to be easy to talk to, with a delightful sense of humor! He performed a steroid injection into my lower back and he was careful and gentle and I did not feel all that uncomfortable during the procedure. Everyone on his staff I interacted with was courteous, respectful and friendly.

I really wasn't sure how to answer some questions because I was not accepted as a patient at your facility. Everyone that I came in contact with was great and very professional. I am sorry I was not accepted, it's a really nice facility.
