I would like to comment on the lab in the basement of Dr. Heicks building. I have noticed substantional difference in a positive way! The waiting room was cleaner and more professional looking. I watched the staff sanitize their hands in between patients and after removing gloves.

When this provider is running late I know that she is taking time to listen to her patients and to be thorough with them. Therefore, I do not mind a little extra waiting time.

Dr. Heick has been the absolute best provider for the last ten years...she started being my doctor when I was diagnosed with RA when I was nine and she has been my favorite of my doctor team since! My [...] insurance this year has limited who I can see for exams and now I cannot see Dr. Heick [...]. This has broken my heart because she has been an incredibly invested and understanding doctor. She asks about my family and my school and she remembers little details about my life, more so than any other doctor I've had! I will miss her and the wonderful experiences that I've had with Providence in general over the years!!

There is a problem when the care provider is out of the office. With this and with my other my other provider I waited several days and made 5 total phone calls to get an answer to questions I had sent through mychart. In one case the question had been transferred to the wrong doctor and in the other, I believe it may have been decided my question needed to wait until my physician returned. It would have been professional, though, if someone had indicated they had seen my question and would make sure my doctor would receive it when she returned. It took 9 days to hear back regarding one concern and 4 for the other.. I am not complaining about my doctors and their assistants, but about the need for some kind of process to make sure that when a provider is gone, there is a means of making sure the question is addressed even if it is a message explaining it would need to wait until the provider returns! This is especially true not that we cannot leave a voice mail message with the medical assistant.

Dr. Heick is always a good listener and shows her expertise in her area of specialty. In the rare occasions when she does not have the answer at that moment I can count on her to find out the answer to any question I pose.

i had a 10 a.m. appointment and didn't see the doctor until just after 11 a.m. Lab downstairs was also quite slow; they seemed low on staff. In both cases, though, the attention and services provided were excellent.

Dr. Heick is the most awesome doctor I have had the pleasure of receiving care. She always takes her time to completely listen to my concerns and then problem solves. She is brilliant and truly is the reason my heart condition was found. I owe her my life.

All good. She listens. She doesn't change the subject or try to worm her way out of answering the question. she is always a little late but that's because she spends time with you and mever makes you feel like she just wants to get rid of youalways a little late

Dr. Heick was very thorough with the limited information she had from my prior rheumatologist. Her physical examination was likewise thorough. I appreciated the time she spent with me during my first visit with her. She intends to follow up with me about questions I had or she had that couldn't be answered during the visit.

03/22/2016
Dr. Heick carefully reviewed my medications, talked with me about them, looked at recent x-rays and labs, physically examined me, and asked me to get back to her with answers pertinent to my care. She is amazingly capable, interested in me as a patient, takes time, often calls later after reviewing my chart and after further thinking, and calls other members of my care team to coordinate. She is a first-class practitioner.
