    Dr. Heckman has an excellent bedside manner and really listened to me and explained things very well. He didn't make me feel rushed during the appointment and was extremely nice.

    HECKMAN has been trying to find problems with my Humana/Medicare. I try and research what excuses he apply but I have spent weeks and weeks trying to verify what he said and I find different answers !
