Amazing & Sweet Doctor

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful doctor Dr. Heller is. My cousin ended up in the ER of Bethesda West with chest pains. No sooner did we call Dr. Heller, he was at the hospital within 10 minutes. Dr. Heller saw the urgency of doing an angiogram so he made sure my cousin was on medication and had him transferred to Bethesda East first thing in the morning where he would do the procedure. Turns out he had a 95% blockage in 1 artery alone where he had to place 3 stents. The next day he had three other arteries requiring 4 stents for a total of 7 stents. My cousin had suffered a heart attack with thankfully no damage and thanks to Dr. Heller, he saved him from having open heart surgery. Trust me, not every doctor would have been able to perform this complicated and delicate procedure. My cousin is resting comfortably at home thanks to Dr. Heller. His bedside manner is wonderful. He explains and shows you a diagram of everything he did so that one can understand. You never feel rushed and he answers any and all questions. Dr. Heller, you are #1 in my book!!!

Dr. Heller saved my life!

My children have a father, and my wife has a husband... all because of Dr. Heller. He saved my life. When all the tests pointed to the fact that I was fine, yet I still was concerned about my heart, Dr. Heller stepped in and listened, did additional testing and discovered I had a major blockage in my left artery, both in the ascending and descending portions of the value. He skillfully, carefully and perfectly performed the four stent procedure that saved my life! He is a kind, caring Dr. who listens to his patients on a personal level. There is no greater recommendation that I can give then my entire family thanks him! It has been four years since and I just came back from snow skiing in Colorado with my family in perfect health!

Excepional care and knowledge. Just in time

I had been with a prominent Delray Beach cardiologist for several years. I switched to Dr Heller after my previous cardiologist put me through a complete gamut of tests leading to a cauterization procedure, where he decided to take no action to relieve my chronic angina. Three months later I went to Dr Heller as the pain and pressure was increasing and starting to radiate into my left arm. Dr Heller immediately got involved to review the previous imaging and documentation. He knew immediately that there was intervention required under another cauterization procedure. He scheduled me for that same week and found 2 major blockages one at 90% and the other at 80%. He ended up stenting in 3 locations. Since then I am feeling absolutely terrific and am now able to do things that I could not do prior to the procedure. I recently walked 5 miles on the beach and had no symptoms. Previously I couldn't go 500 feet without stopping frequently. Dr Heller also showed to be a very open and approachable doctor following up with me personally after the procedure and while recovering. Glad I found him in time. I'm still perplexed as to why my previous cardiologist did nothing to help me when the need for intervention was so evident to Dr. Heller?
