Specialties

Dr. Howard A Heit has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Money Lover

Dr. Heit cares more about money and covering his butt than he does about his patients. His staff was often rude. Dr. was frequently condescending and would repeat things over and over as if were an idiot. He cut me off of my meds and I spent 6 weeks detoxing and in horrible pain. He did not care. He told me to stop calling him and asking for help (I had lost my job and could not pay his "CASH ONLY" fee.) I had been a patient for >6 years and by that time had paid him thousands of dollars. Unreal.

Dr Heit is one of only a few doctors in the Washington DC metro area willing to help chronic pain patients. Through personal experience he understands what it is like to live with chronic pain, and does what he can to provide help and information. He is a leader in the field of pain management and takes this role seriously. He is compassionate and willing to go out of his way to help his patients. I highly recommend him.
