AMAZING doctor!!!

Dr. Heigle and his staff exemplify professionalism, compassion, and commitment. I recently saw him for dry eyes, and his intent listening tuned him into every comment/issue/concern I addressed. His suggestion for the plasma drops is right on + he accurately "suspected" an autoimmune disorder which exists. So many, many thanks to him and his amazing staff. This summer my daughter and I will visit Houston or Boston and pursue his recommendation for the PROSE lenses. Dr. Heigle is a doctor a patient can trust and rely upon for support during difficult times. God Bless!
