My regular doctor was on vacation and Dr. Heckman was lovely. She listened and gave me the appropriate care. Your office is always wonderful. Helping sick people can be hard and they do it well. Dr. Heckman was late but only because she was being thorough about my diagnosis. Quite frankly that was the only thing that stuck out in otherwise excellent care.

Dr Heckman is the best doctor l've ever had (and l'm in my 60s so l've had several over the years!) Above all she is kind, caring and a wonderful listener. She'll spend as much time with you as you need, welcoming questions and explaining things well. I appreciate that we make decisions as a team. I also appreciate that l can get my labwork done in their office and that all my test results and information about my office visit is available on MyChart. I like that l can communicate with Dr Heckman or nurse Becky by sending a message through MyChart. Everyone should be so blessed to have a doctor like Dr Heckman!

Family Physicians was not prepared for 200 persons needing flu shots along with a number who had physical handicaps. It took about 1.3 hours for me to make it through the line before being able to go into the building. They needed more nurses who could perform the inoculations.
