I always enjoy seeing Dr. Heist. he's excellent and very attentive and patiently listens to any concerns. I'm going to miss having him as my PCP since I'm moving out of the region. Excellent MD.

attentive, thorough, kind

I had never met him and he did not introduce himself. In fact the board in the waiting room indicated there was only one Dr. in the office that day who had a female name and in walked a man. Unexpected but sufficient care and willing to rethink the situation.

I deeply appreciate the amount of time Dr. Heist allowed me to voice my health concerns, unfortunately I think we have to agree to disagree on his final assessment.

Dr. Heize is always kind and good listener . So I feel I am lucky to have such a good doctor.

April 03, 2018

Dr. Heist has always been very professional and has never rushed me during my visit. He remembers everything that we have talked about in the past and will bring up concerns he may have.

April 02, 2018

Dr. Heist makes himself available to hear and address any/all of my healthcare concerns. As someone in the healthcare field, I appreciate and admire his bedside manner and attention to detail. He offers different options and explores potential barriers or concerns with me. I cannot say enough about the quality of care he provides.

March 27, 2018

Dr. Heist speaks to me like I'm an intelligent person. I appreciate that. Also his thoroughness.
