Dr. Heiman-Patterson is amazing. I am so very thankful for her and all that she has done for me as I continue on in my difficult journey with Mitochondrial Disease. She cares for her patients from the heart and she treats me with respect and has a wonderful way of understanding me. I trust her completely and feel safe under her care. I appreciate so much how she speaks to me and helps to ease my worries and calm me down. She also, takes the time to explain things to my Mother who accompanies me to my appointments as well. Dr. Heiman-Patterson is a fantastic physician and I am so thankful to be her patient. She is a true rockstar!

We cannot express how grateful we are to have Dr. Heiman-Patterson and her staff working with us as we search for a diagnosis. We trust her completely! She is able to relate to us which is not something brilliant people are able to do with us "average" people. Her staff has always been so kind and attentive and timely in their responses we feel blessed to be working with this team!
