I just felt that meanwhile I was reading my notes and making some questions to him, he wanted to leave the office. I felt very unconfortable by that. It was the first time I saw him after the MRI and I was due to have a surgical procedure and it seemed to me that my questions regarding the surgery and the post surgery were something that I was expected to know.

Excellent surgeon

Dr. Hechtman treated both of my daughters ( knee ACL reconstructions 2005, 2009) with great results for serious, young athletes. We also know several "older" patients who were very satisfied. He is a true expert with a great deal of surgical experience. Highly recommended!
