Patient Reviews

October 31, 2018
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!
October 08, 2018
I just love Dr. Heckman's caring, just her compassion towards my kids and the the problems that we're facing right now. I just really feel like she cares and is very compassionate. She's a very, very good doctor.
October 08, 2018
Dr. Heckman was very courteous, receptive, and knowledgeable. She worked me in the same day and reported my tests back to me the following business day. Fantastic care. Thanks, Dr. Heckman!
October 03, 2018
Jessica Heckman is a very personable and she makes you feel very comfortable. She's very easy to talk to and ask questions. She takes her time makes you feel like she has plenty of time to answer your questions and answers many questions as you have and I highly recommend Dr. Heckman and appreciate her Care. Thank you.
September 26, 2018
Dr. Heckman is an amazing provider. Her and the office does such a great job taking care of my family. I'm so glad to have found them. I appreciate all of the hard work and dedication that everyone in the office provide. I wish more doctor's offices were like Family Medicine of Lincoln.

My daughter was very pleased with Dr. Heckman the way should treat her and the way she listened to her and she's happy to have her as a doctor and I am too. We love you Dr. Heckman.
September 19, 2018
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.
August 31, 2018
I loved Dr Jessica Heckman!!! I wished I would have found her sooner.

August 21, 2018
Dr. Heckman is an amazing doctor who cares and listens and works hard to connect with me as a patient. She isn't sending people through the turnstile. She personalizes my care and is working toward making me a healthier person every time I visit.
August 20, 2018
Dr. Heckman is a superb physician, we felt very comfortable with her, she answered all our questions, she gave her her opinion, she gave us recommendations and I would by far recommend her to anyone I know. Thank you.
August 15, 2018
I like the time that the doctor I use takes her time explaining things to me and doesn't make me feel rushed to have to get out of the exam room.
August 14, 2018
Dr. Heckman was truly wonderful. Personable, charming and I felt like I was really listened too. I can't wait to go back for many, many years.

August 08, 2018
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%.
July 24, 2018

July 13, 2018
Nursing staff leaves much to be desired.
July 13, 2018
This was Mt first visit with Dr Heckman.... She was wonderful! Very personable and pleasant. Listened and made recommendations without being asked.

I was extremely happy with my new provider!!!

July 06, 2018
I just came in for a blood draw and it was painless and quick. I did not have to wait long at all to get in
July 06, 2018
I am a new patient and saw Dr. Heckman for the first time for a wellness check/physical. She was so friendly and talkative, easy to get to know and well prepared, having looked at my records from my previous Dr. I will definitely recommend her to others.
July 02, 2018
i was really happy the doctor could see me the same day i called with concerns. the staff was very helpful, professional and caring, which i really appreciated.
July 02, 2018
Friendly, professional service.

Very pleasant and timely. Nice doctor. Really like her.
June 22, 2018
She was very good. This is about the third time that I've seen her and I'm glad that I have her. That's about it.
June 19, 2018
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.
June 19, 2018
Doctor very informative. Nurse very nice

June 12, 2018
Dr. Heckman is friendly and is passionate about her job. She makes you feel comfortable and shows a genuine concern/interest in your health and lifestyle. Her demeanor and smile immediately put you at ease as a patient. She explains all procedures and the need for future suggested medical treatments. She is a very knowledgeable doctor and comes across as a member of your team in a coaching role. I admire and appreciate her level of concern for her patients, she takes the time to get to know you as a person. It is a joy being one of her patients.

June 04, 2018
Great doctor
May 30, 2018
Dr. Heckman is great and she's always very…very….
May 30, 2018
She was friendly, listened to my questions and answers, took notes and made suggestions. She made me feel relaxed and comfortable.
May 25, 2018
Dr. Heckman listened to my questions and answered all my questions. She was patient and took time with me to make sure I understood what was happening and answering all my questions. And her staff was extremely helpful as well. I was extremely pleased and happy to find a doctor who was so caring.
May 21, 2018
This was my first visit to this practice and found it to be a great experience.

Thank you for taking care of me on such a short noticed on having my blood draw done. Because I know I didn't leave much of a notice that I was coming in and I really appreciated getting that done. Thank you so much. You were so kind to take me. Thank you.
May 14, 2018
She was wonderful, she took time, patience, and explained everything to us so we know what to do and if we had any questions we knew that we could give her a call. Thank you for being a great doctor.
May 14, 2018
Dr. Heckman is amazing, so caring and sweet. She treated me like I was family.
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.
May 08, 2018
My experience was excellent. Glad I chose this office and physician!
May 07, 2018
I just came in for a HA1C blood draw.
May 02, 2018
Dr. Heckman is an exceptional doctor. Her ‘bedside manner’ is the best I’ve experienced. I’ve recommended her highly to those looking for a new physician.
May 02, 2018
Dr.Heckman is a wonderful provider. She listens to your concerns and never tries to make you feel crazy, even if you are! :)
April 25, 2018
I was welcomed to the practice as a new patient, and participated in a great conversation about my concerns and plans.
April 25, 2018
Dr. Heckman is both a scientist and a humanist--a rare and welcome combination in today's medicine.
April 25, 2018
Look forward to having dr heckman as a provider again and appreciate her theory of “I want to see my patients”
April 24, 2018
Dr. Heckman is always super kind and incredibly upbeat, and I trust her more than I have ever trusted a doctor before. She's just perfect, and I absolutely adore her.
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.
April 18, 2018
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 13, 2018
Dr Heckman is a very caring doctor and I have confidence in her care and judgement when it comes to my health care.
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
This was my first visit with Dr Heckman as my new doctor! I am beyond impressed with her!!! She took the time to listen to me and was very detailed! I LOVE my new doctor!!!
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
She is very patient and has good skills. I really trust her and like her. I got her very good care.
March 26, 2018
My difficulties were not with the physcian but rather the support staff
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.
March 20, 2018
Dr Heckman is very thorough
March 19, 2018
I haven’t found a doctor I’ve liked for quite sometime who really seems to listen and actually care for me as a person. Dr Heckman is outstanding!!
March 16, 2018
My child did not see his regular or usual doctor for this years annual check up. We were not informed that it would be a different physician, but she was an adequate substitute, I just did not appreciate not having any warning about the change because our primary doctor is who we trust and who knows us and I would have preferred to see him.
March 14, 2018
My experience was excellent. I felt that the Doctor had studied my health history and was able to discuss my condition and prescribe treatment in a very caring manner.
March 14, 2018
I just went in for Blood test; so never spoke with a doctor.
March 13, 2018
I appreciate Dr. Heckman and how she treats my health and health information as MY health and MY information (rather than collecting information and not sharing it or her professional thoughts and concerns about it). She listens to my concerns and questions and responds then pays attention to see if I need additional information or clarification. I do not usually make referrals or recommendations, but I have recommended Dr. Heckman and Family Medicine to four people/families in the past year. I appreciate the new patient portal. I understand that kinks are still being worked out (for instance, I have corrected my work phone number three times, but it still reverts to an incorrect one that was prepopulated at first visit). It will be a powerful and user-friendly tool. I hope that it will eventually be able to link us with past medical test results and records. It would help my provider and me to see some older hospitalization and test records (almost 20 years ago). I'm curious to know if it links directly with NeHII for both HIE and prescriptions and how that interface is working. I especially appreciate the immediate notification and availability of test results. I wish there were a resource page or center that would define words and abbreviations and provide background about those test and results. Perhaps that's a future expansion module. Thank you for the paperless statement option!
March 12, 2018
I’m always made comfortable and confidante with service friendliness and medical knowledge
March 09, 2018
It is a warm and caring environment
March 07, 2018
I'm just happy to have Jessica as my family doctor and I pressed 1 on she didn't know my history, my records did not transfer from my previous doctor. Thank you, bye.
February 28, 2018
Great experience!
February 28, 2018
Dr. Heckman is always very friendly and seems to really care about me as a patient and as a person. I'm so glad I found her. I'm also impressed with her medical knowledge and her dedication to helping people.
February 23, 2018
Dr. Heckman does an excellent job. We appreciate what good care she also gives to our daughter. She's very considerate and listens. And we're very thankful for her care.
February 20, 2018
I appreciate that Dr. Heckman not only addresses my medical questions and issues but takes a personal interest and remembers information I have given her in the past.
February 16, 2018
My experience with Dr. Heckman was absolutely awesome. She seems like the kind of person that I can talk to, that I can be open with and I would like her to continue to be my doctor. So, that's all I have to say.
February 13, 2018
Dr Heckman is a wonderful Caring doctor and I feel lucky to have her. She never seems rushed and takes time to Answer my questions. She takes a personal interest In my care.

February 06, 2018
She was very helpful, very professional and kind, answered all my questions. She was also very flexible, even though I was 10/15 minutes late. She was still able to see me and I really appreciate that. So, keep up the great job that you all are doing. Bye. Oh and I wanted to put down 10 for would I recommend, but I was afraid that if I tried to put one and then zero, it would accidentally pick up one instead, so yeah, 10/10, good job. Thank you.
February 02, 2018
Dr. Heckman is a very welcoming and compassionate doctor. She took the time to listen to me, you know, and education me on my health and wellness and I really appreciate having her as my family physician.
February 02, 2018
Dr.Heckman is very warm and friendly. You can tell she cares about me health.
February 02, 2018

January 30, 2018
I think she did a very, very good job with the amount of time. She took a lot of time to talk about family history, whether it be good or bad, which it was very, very good. She gave me some references on how to help with occupational therapy, stuff like that. Overall, very, very well on her performance on how to help people. I think she does a very, very good job. I would recommend anyone to go to her. At the end of the session, she shook my hand and gave me a hug, so I am very, very pleased with my first appointment with her
January 30, 2018
Dr. Heckman, thoroughly explained recent tests, and gave me the opportunity to ask questions and express concerns.

January 17, 2018
Dr. Heckman had reviewed my daughter’s history (1st time visit as previous physician had retired) and was very prepared for our appt. She was very caring and engaged. She took the time to get to know my daughter. My daughter has autism so appreciated Dr. Heckman’s calm manner as well as seeing us on time. Very impressed.

Dr. Heckman is amazing. Very encouraging and helpful. She listens and thinks critically about how to help. No one-size-fits-all diagnosis, but specifically what I need to become healthier. I'd recommend her any day.
