Dr. Hefner has been my children's doctor since they were born. He has always been attentive and knowledgeable.
we have always been pleased
Visit was short. I wasn't asked about her meeting developmental milestones at this appointment (9 months) as I had been in the past.
He is great doctor!!!
My child's provider is an amazing and very knowledgeable doctor.
Our provider is excellent.
The office is always quick to take you back to a room and we were in and out within 15 minutes of arriving.
I feel Dr Hefner is the best ped. in the US. especially for my kiddos, one healthy and one adhd dyslexia.
Dr. Hefner is always great. He shows respect for my feelings, intuition and opinions regarding my son's health.
Dr. Hefner is knowledgeable, personable, and patient.
I loved how good the doctor was, explained everything, listened to the questions and answered them, was fast in seeing my son, and was an overall good experience to have Dr. Hefner as the doctor.
excellent service always
I have a great deal of respect for Dr. Hefner and the way that he works with patients and parents. I think he is very attentive, well informed, up-to-date on medical information, and very easy to talk with about issues/concerns. My son has some on-going lung/breathing issues especially when he gets another minor illness. For this visit, Dr. Hefner took extra time to listen to his lungs and did more than the standard breath in and breath out. With these extra few moments he took, I feel like he was able to give a better diagnosis and treatment than we have seen with other health professionals in the same office and the connected urgent care. I was so glad that we were able to fit into his schedule just after Thanksgiving!
provider and staff are nice.
