Dr. Heilman was very pleasant and spent much time with us as a family; however, although she said she was familiar with the MRI, I found her explanation vague, and it was difficult pinning her down to details. I would likely not recommend her in a similar case, as this is an acute, and potentially serious condition, which I felt we had to keep asking her . She impressed me with a seemingly lack of confidence. I was disappointed at this appointment at Kaiser RWC.
