Patient Comment August 2020
as I stated previously, Dr Heffernan is simply the absolute best doctor in that hospital as far as family doctors go and caring about their patients. He takes his time, which as a quality management person I'm sure doesn't do him personally any favors, but I guarantee you it does you favors by safeguarding your patients, ***

Patient Comment June 2020
I am a very satisfied long term patient of Dr. Heffernan and this practice. I have always been greeted with a knowledgeable , smiling staff person .during each step of my visit. I never feel rushed, I have always had my questions answered. I am so grateful for the caring, friendly staff and ease of getting care when I need it. This is a great example how people need to work together for the good of their patients so don't mess with it. Thank you for allowing me to express my feelings since so many things are changing and not always for the best.
