I Got my Life Back!!

I am a healthcare provider, so my expectations from a customer service standpoint, knowledge and evidenced based practice are extremely high. I have reviewed Dr. Heider's statistics and the center of excellence designated to his practice and he, by far; has exceeded every expectation and standard. Dr. Heider personally called me the day after I was discharged to check on me and I could genuinely hear the compassion and dedication in his voice. Dr. Heider is a champion in his field and I challenge you to make the call

I have very few photos of myself....
