It is rare to find a physician who is both caring and competent. Dr. Heary exemplifies both of these qualities. He treated me like a person, listened to my concerns and talked with me honestly about my options for back pain. He is usually running behind schedule but he actually has a reason for it - he takes the time to listen and talk to you. Dr. Heary is one of the only doctors I have ever actually liked - and I have been to many! I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery. He was also honest about how much it would hurt afterwards, something I also appreciated knowing. I can't say enough good things about him - he is the best.
