Sadly dr. Heckman has no openings for new patients but she's the greatest
June 17, 2020
She is not even my provider, but she was fantastic in answering all my questions after hours, and then making sure that I was seen by her the next day, worked me into what I know she had was a busy schedule, take the time to look through my chart - and really thoroughly go over information with me. So I greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

I always feel welcome and valued when I visit the office. Everyone is friendly and kind. I don't expect the staff at my doctor's office to remember me, but I always feel like they do know me, especially Becky W. Dr. Heckman is an absolute gem of a doctor, knowledgeable and professional and always willing to listen to my concerns. The treatment (both medical and personal) I get at FML makes it easier to manage my health problems.

I think she did a very good job with all of it. I think she knows the full understanding of how to treat the patient just everything that I think I expect out of a doctor. She does a very,very good job. I would give her a 10 any day and I would recommend her to anyone.

Jessica Heckman is the absolute best doctor I have ever had an experience with. I highly recommend her to anyone across the board. She's very thorough. She's very personable. She's very professional. She puts you at ease and she seems incredibly intuitive and genuine and I think she's probably one of the most amazing doctors in all of Nebraska. In fact, I live in California and I travel back to Nebraska once a month to visit family. She's the one who I want to see. I have a choice out here in Progressive California, but I would rather see Dr. Heckman. Give her 2 thumbs up, 10 points.....absolutely the best.
October 29, 2019
I appreciate that Dr. Heckman is prepared for office visits. She knows what needs to be reviewed and discussed, she has records and reports at hand, and she says at the beginning what we'll be doing and talking about. Then, she asks what else I want to add to the visit. She listens carefully, always responds to questions, and takes care of follow-up details. She is friendly, caring, respectful, and so very professional.
October 28, 2019
Dr. Heckman was amazing. I really didn't have to wait that long. I meant to enter a 3, she is awesome. I love her and I will recommend my friends and family, thank you.
October 28, 2019
Dr Heckmann is always so jolly and caring she listens to every concern you have. Wouldn't go too another Doctor ever unless she gives me a referral. The ones she had given me are always the right ones. Love her to death need more Doctors like her. Her nurse Becky is also awesome always has a smile on her face she also is a good listener.
October 23, 2019
Love her!

Dr. Dresbach's office is ALWAYS very professional. The nurses and lab girls are EXCELLENT. I am a "hard stick" when it comes to getting blood. The lab girl did an wonderful job, when she needed assistance she had no problem getting a nurse to try and find a vein. They worked together and finally were able to get some blood from me out of the top of my hand. EXCELLENT JOB!! Thank you
October 21, 2019
