I called for an appointment at 10 am in the morning because of pain in my leg. I was given an appointment at 11:15 the same day. You can not imagine how happy that made me feel.

Dr Heres, is excellent in the care concern that he shows his patients. I travel far distance to get care from him. I only wish he had an office in a closer location.

My experience with this medical practice was flawless. I am a Registered Nurse, have worked all my professional life in the medical field and a senior citizen. As a result I think I'm able to make an accurate judgement of my visits with this facility.

I find Dr. Heres and his staff extremely professional and responsive to my concerns. I have had to make several calls concerning my medications and nursing staff responded quickly especially Niki. She was great.
