I visited Dr. Heron to determine if I had prostate cancer. He was knowledgeable, professional, and helpful, but I opted to go to Moffitt Cancer Center for surgery because Dr. Heron does not perform robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. I also later learned that most docs use general anesthesia when conducting a biopsy, but he used a local. OUCH! My biggest complaint is that they said they were in network for UHC insurance, but used a diagnostic co. that was not so I had to eat the $2K fee! Make sure you ask!!
Dr Heron never saw me before or after surgery. Surgery at Palms Hospital then I was sent 5 miles away to his 38 Ave Office for a chemo implant. Arriving at office they said I had no appointment & had to wait for 5 patient ahead of me. Catheter fell to around my ankle. Nurse did implant; never saw Dr. Heron. Computer didn't work so I couldn't pay the owed $135. Later Dr said he spoke to me in the OR! and I didn't remember! He also said he was playing in a golf tournament that day so he was too busy to see me. Run away from this doc as fast as you can.
Dr. Heron made things extremely comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation. Being younger, and never having had an operation before, he found ample time to answer even the simplest of questions. I agree with some that he seems to be in a hurry, but with 23 years of experience in his field I'm certain he has many other patients with more urgent needs. He came highly recommended by my primary and he did not let down.
