After breast cancer, the reconstruction process has been long. The staff at CAPS have made the experience very positive. They are like my extended family. They truly care about their patients. I have recommended two close friends who need reconstructive surgery to Dr. Heck.
Dr. Heck and his nurse have always made me feel confident in their services. I do not know what my final results will be, but he has assured me he won’t be happy until I am happy. That means the world to me.
Dr. Heck and his staff are phenomenal – kind, caring, friendly, and funny. I’ve never had a more positive experience in a physician’s office.
Dr. Heck has helped me through a very difficult period in my life. I believe he couldn’t be more professional, compassionate, and caring. I am extremely pleased I came here.
Dr. Heck is extremely courteous and professional and puts a patient at ease quickly. There was no doubt I was in very capable hands.
Dr. Heck is reconstructing my left breast after it was removed because of breast cancer. He is very nice to me and was highly recommended by Dr. Liang (who removed the breast). I feel I am getting quality care and I am very satisfied. Dr. Heck and the staff are very caring and supportive. They are positive and encouraging. I am happy with everyone I’ve met in the office.
Dr. Heck was recommended, and I can see why. He is a very caring doctor and very skilled at what he does.
He listened very carefully, and the plan we reached together is phenomenal. I couldn’t dream of anything better.
I felt very welcome in the office and think Dr. Heck and his staff are wonderful.
I have been very pleased with the promptness, caring, and understanding with everyone I have made contact with in office so far. I’ve taken great pleasure in knowing Dr. Heck really knows what he’s doing and really cares.
I would highly recommend Dr. Heck to everyone! He is an amazing doctor and I trusted him 100%. His professionalism and work was exactly what I was hoping for. He took the time to understand my needs and gave great recommendations for my body and life style. I am so happy with my results! Thank you Dr. Heck!
Love Dr. Heck and all the staff! Very friendly. Dr. Heck made me feel comfortable. He was kind, knowledgeable, and I trusted him and was not let down. Thanks.
