Wait time was unbelievable!!!!!!!!!! Nurse took initial info, then PA looked over info and asked same questions. Provider was in room for 30 seconds, then nurse came in to reorder meds.

I have been to Dr. Heres for pain treatment before and have always had a great experience.

October 27, 2016

DR. HERES WAS SO AWESOME! HE SAT DOWN, LISTENED AND TALKED ABOUT TO WHATS GOING ON SINCE THE LAST VISIT. VERY CARING MANOR AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING PERFECTLY. I WALKED OUT OF THERE WITH SUCH RELIEF! I WOULDNT BE WALKING BETTER WITHOUT HIM!!!

October 27, 2016

The appointment with Dr. Heres was unacceptable. After completing an extremely long list of questions, I was asked many of the same questions once I was in the exam room. When Dr. Heres came into the room he never acknowledged me, but asked me who had referred me? He then said he didn't know why I was referred to him, as he was not accepting new patients. He then walked out of the room. I was appalled!

October 27, 2016

The whole experience was professional and without any adverse problems.

October 27, 2016

Amazing doctor, nurses, & other staff!!!! Would recommend them to everyone
