run away!

Worst provider ive been to in the capital region. From the beginning to end, this place is a disaster. Making an appointment in the morning is a process all in itself. They are supposed to start taking calls at 830 but often can't get ahold of anyone till 9am. Then your put on hold. The waiting room is disgusting. Tissues all over the floor! The only positive experience I've had was with the nurses. They have always been pleasant, kind and informative. I have NOTHING positive to say about Doctor Heffernan. I leave the office questioning how she is able to practice. I feel like she has absolutely no idea what she's doing. I do not feel confident in her treating me and will be leaving the practice.

Painful experience.

Most painful pelvic exam I've ever had. Doctor wasn't slow or gentle about inserting or opening the speculum, and it hurt for a few hours afterward. Would never recommend this doctor to a woman unless you have a separate ob/gyn.
