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

I would highly recommend Dr. Heckman to anyone who asks!
November 06, 2017
This was the first time I’d met Stacee, but I found her smile and conversation to be friendly and genuine. I was at ease with her right away. As for Dr. Heckman, as usual, she ROCKS! She always takes the time to consider me as a whole; she listens carefully; and she answers thoroughly and honestly—giving me the information I need to make good decisions about my health and treatment. I always learn something—and I always leave smiling!

Dr. Heckman is so amazing. I am so glad I have someone like her to see with any medical issues. Her nurses are wonderful as well and I feel so good leaving there!
October 20, 2017
I like Jessica Heckman and all the nurses there, because they talk to you like you're 1 of them, not like, you know, they're a doctor and you're just a patient. They talk to you as if they really do care. They see the patient on a very timely manner, they talk with you, they care. They want to actually help, not just get you in and out and be done with you.
October 17, 2017
I appreciated my visit with Dr. Heckman immensely. She and the triage nurse helped figure out how I could transition from a very expensive medication to one that was less expensive and also help figure out how to obtain some medical supplies that I was not able to get otherwise, so I'm very pleased with their knowledge, their expertise and their concern as well as their ability to listen to my issues, so I'm very pleased with Dr. Heckman and the triage nurse, who's name, I believe, is Tracy. Thank you.
October 16, 2017

October 16, 2017

October 09, 2017
Dr. Heckman took the time to understand my daughter's condition and the situation that we were in beforehand but also took the time to listen to me during the appointment and she also made sure that we had a plan moving forward that I was comfortable with and made us feel empowered as parents which is all we can ask for, it was great.
October 06, 2017
The staff was great and Dr. Heckman's a caring, very caring individual and I would highly recommend her. I don't have anything negative to say about her at all. The visit went well and I think she helped me with all of my problems.
October 04, 2017
Dr. Heckman always sees me as soon as it's possible, she answers all of my questions so that I feel like I know where we stand. Thank you!
October 04, 2017
This was my first visit, so my evaluation may be better with time.
October 03, 2017
Yes I was extremely pleased with Dr. Jessica Heckman, she even I think, figured out there is a pain I've been having for years and I think she even figured out the cause when many other doctors have not been able to so, I'm very happy with her. I'm not sure if that's what I'm supposed to be, information I'm supposed to be giving or if it's about the survey. This survey was fine and I'm very pleased with Dr. Jessica Heckman.
October 03, 2017
This was my first visit, and everyone was so friendly and helpful. The doctor listened to my concerns, and she was very helpful and knowledgeable. I was so happy to find a doctor who was this nice!!

I think Dr. Heckman's a tremendous doctor. She has good staff, and everything works right. I really appreciate her. I think a lot of her. So thank you.
August 29, 2017
The whole experience at Family Medicine of Lincoln was excellent. I was immediately greeted when I walked in the door; the receptionist made eye contact with me while taking and relaying information. Dr. Heckman's nurse was upbeat and professional and answered my questions. Dr. Heckman LISTENED and HEARD what I had to say. She took time to provide education and to point me to resources she knew I would research and utilize for self-education. All the staff members I encountered greeted me and/or made eye contact. They seemed to enjoy their jobs and each other. Kudos to the doctors of the practice who set the tone for the great patient experience. Special shout outs to Drs. Heckman and Sayers.
August 28, 2017
I want Jessica to always be my doctor. I was so impressed, she knew my health history, which is a lot. And she just, she listened to me. And didn't act like she had to get out of the room. So thank you very much.
August 25, 2017
I really liked Dr. Heckman. I felt like she really listened to me and she answered all my questions very thoroughly. And treated me like I was a person, not just a client or a friend. Or she treated me like a friend, not just a client. And I also felt like she really gave me additional information that I didn't necessarily specifically ask, but she elaborated. And I've been trying some of that and I've been feeling really good. And I've had some really good doctors in the past and so I was really nervous because both my OB and my general practicing doctor have moved on. So meeting with Dr. Heckmann I was a little nervous but she was great. She did all my expectations and then
August 25, 2017
Yes. I like Jessica Heckman very much. If she hadn't been so far away, I would still be coming to see her. She's the best doctor I've ever had, and I cried when I had to leave her. She is wonderful. Thank you. Bye.
August 25, 2017
Dr. Jessica Heckman was very nice, very helpful, she was just over the top very knowledgeable, and I felt very comfortable and I felt at ease with her. I definitely love Dr. Jessica Heckman, I definitely would recommend her to anybody.
August 25, 2017
The thing that I really like the most is how quickly they get myself and my children in, and Dr. Heckman knows each of our medical history and treatments and always willing to answer questions and go above to ask questions if she has questions, and I would advise anyone to come see Dr. Heckman or to the doctor office, because of the care. It's just excellent. Thank you.
August 22, 2017
I felt that she listened to me very well, and I was able to express my feelings about things.
August 14, 2017
I actually did recommend her to family and friends :-)
August 11, 2017
Dr. Heckman is a wonderful care provider. I actually followed her from the other practice that she was in. She's very thorough, she's very personable, has great bedside manner and I really enjoy seeing her for my care. One concern that I do have is, not regarding this appointment in august, but at a later time. A few weeks after that I called regarding an injury that I had received in a motor vehicle accident. And it was going to be nearly a month before I was able to get in to see Dr. Heckman. And even the physician's assistant did not have any openings that were available for me because my injury was not considered acute. So I did have to go and see another provider at a different facility in town.
August 11, 2017
I'm very pleased with Dr. Jessica Heckman, she is very attentive and repeatedly asks me what more I would like to talk about. She's relaxed and is willing to give me plenty of time. We found something we have in common and I feel like we are friends. I feel very blessed to have found her as my new physician when my former doctor closed her practice.
August 09, 2017
Dr. Heckman has an amazing bedside manner and is incredibly intuitive to each patients needs of both myself and my children and takes each situation individually, but looks at your entire chart and is very open to answering questions. Pretty awesome. Thank you.
August 08, 2017
I usually arrive 15 minutes early and I end up sitting in the waiting room for over 30 minutes. The time it takes to see the provider is a long time and I suggest it be shortened. It shouldn't take over an hour to get in and out of the office for a simple appointment.
August 01, 2017
Dr. Jessica Heckman is very nice and very caring and pays attention to all his medical needs, and any time because of his medical history and health issues, sometimes he needs to be seen the same day, maybe 1 hour, 2 hour, and she accommodates the time to see him. And so she's been a great, great provider for him, and he's very happy with her service, and she's equally very kind, very caring, very loving doctor. And very professional
July 31, 2017
Dr. Heckman is a wonderful provider. She is kind, thorough & very knowledgeable.
July 07, 2017
Dr Heckman treated me like I was her only patient that day - even though she wasn't aware I was a new patient, so the time slot had to have been shorter than a new patient slot.
June 27, 2017
Dr. Heckman is the most respectful & attentive to my needs. She is truly cares about my health and has consulted with my neurologist to assure my treatment is the best possible. She's a new doctor for me & I feel she gives up & beyond concerning my health care Great doctor!
June 13, 2017
I will recommend Jessica because she is very helpful and understanding Super open to listen my concerns. Best doctor ever!!!
June 12, 2017

Dr. Heckman was amazing - I've never felt so welcomed and heard at a doctors office before!
May 16, 2017
Dr. Heckman is warm & caring. She comes in with a smile on her face. She knows your health history is a good listener, is a good listener & provides a great explanation!
May 08, 2017
It has been great, just wish she was closer. I wish she was in the middle of town.
April 28, 2017
Dr. Heckman sat with me & asked all kinds of questions about what was going on in my life. She made me understand my health & made me laugh. She makes me feel part on my health care.
April 28, 2017
They don't return phone calls!! I have had to call 3 to 4 times before getting a response.
April 18, 2017
Dr. Heckman is knowledgeable, thorough, a great listener, and takes the time to answer all of my questions.
April 11, 2017
Told her BP meds bothering my eyes. She did nothing. Now my eyes are bothering me. She was rude last time I was in.
April 10, 2017
I love the fact Dr. Heckman really is concerned and cares about me as a person and takes the time with me answering my concerns & explains things very well. Shes a great person!
April 07, 2017
