How was your appointment with Dr. Heffner?

May 16, 2021
Dr Heffner, a true functional doctor, takes anincredible amount of interest in workingdiligently to find solutions to complex cases. I saw wonderful reviews about her care/treatment and most importantly how she works through various testing options to find the root of the problem, before starting treatment, even if very complex. She is constantly continuing her education, especially about complex health concerns that cause of a variety of confusing symptoms which many other practitioners have often missed. She is super at reminding us that the source of illness is not always easy to determine, and the number of geneticvariants, environmental contributors/exposures and metabolic abnormalities can make the diagnosis more difficult. She does not give up on working with the parents to help the child improve as much as possible. and works very hard to customize treatment for the patient based on their unique biochemical presentation. Dr Heffner helped us save our daughter's life.
