Dr. Heckman was absolutely awesome. She took the time to listen and understand my condition. Entire clinic had a warm welcoming atmosphere.

Dr. Heckman was very knowledgeable and friendly. She took ample time to listen to my concerns and provided great care. I have no doubts that I have made the best choice in choosing to transfer my care to her. Becky W. was polite and patient with me while I tended to my children. All of the nurses were so nice to my little girls. They talked with them and played with them like they have known them their whole lives. I am truly grateful for this office!

Dr. Heckman is great!!
October 26, 2018
The gal that took my blood sample was probably the worst I have ever encountered. Whenever I have been there before they have been fantastic. It felt like a railroad spike was used instead of a needle, I had a huge bruise that lasted over a week and there was an egg sized swelling where the blood was drawn. Not happy! This is the only time that this has happened.
October 22, 2018
I really like Dr. Heckman. She is the best family practice provider I have ever had. Caring, knowledgable, all-around great physician!
October 16, 2018
Dr. Heckman is a wonderful physician. She's caring and connected to her patients, yet also efficient. Not that anyone enjoys a visit to a doctor's office, but I would say having a provider like Dr. Heckman makes that a much more enjoyable experience!

Dr. Heckman is very caring and very knowledgeable. I'm so glad I found her!
September 05, 2018
Way exceeded my expectations. Dr. Heckman had reviewed my medical and surgical history prior to the appointment; she asked relevant questions and provided clear information in response to my questions. Follow-up directions were clear, and I appreciated leaving the appointment with a written summary. Lab work was completed at the end of the appointment, and the results were available on MyChart the next morning; that's impressive. Dr. Heckman was warm, caring, and professional. She is clearly a relator!
September 04, 2018
Yes, it's a wonderful doctor she's intelligent, she informs you completely, I mean, she showed me pictures, she helped me understand what happened to my legs, she's amazing. She's an awesome doctor and I'm thankful that I found her.

Dr. Heckman was amazing per usual.
August 06, 2018
Entire office was cordial, friendly, professional. Dr. Heckman was great and spent quite a while with me as a new patient. Only hassle was playing phone tag (after my appt.) the next day to get my test results. Both sides had to leave a couple VM messages before I finally talked to someone. Also, I don't like to complete surveys (and got 2 emails & 1 VM msg. requesting same).
August 03, 2018
I am very happy with the clinic and all the staff. They are all so helpful and friendly!
August 03, 2018
Dr. Heckman and her staff is top notch and I trust her 100%.

Came in for pre-arranged lab work prior to office visit following day. There was some delay due to needing to re-enter my test orders, which may have had something to do a new computer system.

May 14, 2018
I am very fortunate to have found this practice and Dr. Heckman. The staff is efficient, professional and extremely courteous and Dr. Heckman is , in my experience, a thoroughly competent physician. I do not state this lightly. I have had several negative experiences with doctors and other health-care providers in the past and as a consequence am wary of the quality of care. That said, Dr. Heckman and her staff have my complete trust.
May 09, 2018
The staff and Dr. Heckman were wonderful. It was the first time I left a doctor visit smiling because the experience was so pleasant.

April 24, 2018
I did not see the health care provider, Jessica Heckman. I was in and had blood drawn, and I left. I did not see her, she did nothing, I didn't speak to her, and you didn't have…you didn't know what was going on.
April 19, 2018
Dr. Heckman is wonderful example of what a physician should be. She was very caring and professional. I would recommend her highly.

First visit with this provider. Very impressed with her and nurse and office staff. Think I've made a good choice for new primary provider, since previous retired.
April 17, 2018
Dr. Heckman is amazing, every time I see her I feel so good about the visit and thankful that she is my physician. I feel genuinely cared for, that she takes time to really know me and my healthcare needs and that my health is important to her. She has a gifted way of taking her medical knowledge and explaining it in ways I can understand and makes sure that I am an integral part of the decision process for my healthcare. I am truly blessed to have her as my doctor and I can't say enough good things about her and my experiences as her patient.

April 11, 2018
This was just a blood draw, but all went well
April 11, 2018
This was my 1st visit to see Dr Heckman and l was very impressed with her knowledge and professional yet very personable manner. She did not know my medical history however she asked lots of good questions and addressed all of my concerns. I was also very impressed to receive a comprehensive document detailing what was discussed at my first visit, follow-up information, and a new medication she wanted me to start taking. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Heckman to my friends!
April 10, 2018

As usual my visits to this facility are pleasant.
April 03, 2018
Dr. Heckman is such an amazing provider with a warm and friendly personality. She makes you feel comfortable and provides tons of feedback while listening to and remembering all of your needs and desires. I recommend her so much that my husband will be seeing her this month as well! The office staff are friendly and competent and I'm always surprised when I only have to wait a minute or two before being escorted to a room and seen by the doctor almost immediately.
April 03, 2018
Very impressed with Dr. Heckman!!
April 03, 2018
I was extremely impressed with the time she allotted for me and for answering the questions and she was tremendously thorough.
April 03, 2018
I really liked the staff that I encountered in my visit. Everything was very efficient and I left feeling like I knew what to do "down the road". I really liked the "My Chart" concept - especially setting my own appointments! I was also blown away that I could email my own doctor! I was a little confused as to where to go and how to reach this medical office. The place is so big I didn't know where to go. It would've been nice to have a little more clarification as to which building and door to use!!
April 02, 2018
Dr.Heckman is great a good listener and wealth of knowledge and extremely caring.
March 28, 2018

March 23, 2018
Dr. Heckman takes time to listen and have a real conversation. I love her!!
March 23, 2018
Dr. Heckman is a special medical service provider. She listens to me, carefully analyzes my test results and explains such to me. She answers my questions and accepts my comments. We have an excellent understanding of each of our roles. We are reviewing my health and best techniques for a full life. I shared my goals and she offers suggestions to accomplish such. She celebrates my successes and encourages me "to keep up the good work". I was very fortunate to find her as my family medical provider.
March 21, 2018
Everything was very expedient that day. In and out in a timely manner. I really like the check in process with the paperless system. I like being able to see my info on the screen when the Dr is talking with me.
