Patient | February 26, 2018

I wish everyone was as nice as Dr. Hedera he made me feel good about my surgery that I hope to have
Patient | February 19, 2018

The problem is with me , understanding what he says.I have a friend that is always with me. I'm very hard of hearing and wear a hearing aid. Dr Hedera talks very fast and sometimes ,my friend has to tell me what he has said, but he always writes to my primary care doctor a summary of the visit and she explains anything that I'm unclear about. My DBS did not work , so DR Hedera is just checking to see if I'm worse , this is not a condition that gets better.I have been coming every 6 mo for 12 yrs. Dr Hedera is a brilliant doctor and I have recommended him several times.
Patient | February 12, 2018

Dr. Hedera has been so kind and caring. If I have a problem I can e-mail him & he responds within hours.
Patient | January 3, 2018

Dr. Hedera is the absolute BEST Care Provider. He makes every visit a very positive experience. His recommendations are pragmatic, in the best interests of the patient, and very empathetic to his patient's concerns. I recommend him to everyone I meet if they need the type of care he provides.
