Dr. Heiman-Patterson is absolutely wonderful. As a patient with a rare disease, she listens to me, takes the best care of me, and always helps me, not only physically, but also, emotionally. My illness came upon me without warning and provides, unfortunately, a future that will prove to be difficult, but Dr. Heiman-Patterson consistently makes me feel as though we are a team and that she is there to help me in any way she can. She is professional, intelligent, and understanding. She too, is wonderful in getting back to me with test results and treatment plans. This week has been particular difficult for me, physically, but I am very grateful for the help and assistance of such a wonderful doctor. Thank you, Dr. Heiman-Patterson for all you do for me and all of your patients.
