I would strongly recommend Dr. Bren Heaton as a surgeon to anyone who wanted to be under the care of a compassionate and skilled surgeon.
I had been having some severe pain for a few days that landed me in the Emergency Room and a diagnosis of "gallstones". My gallbladder was filled with marble sized stones. As the stubborn that nurse I am, I figured I can handle this. I know what to do and what not to eat and I'll be okay, no need to see a doctor just yet.
Well, couple weeks later I landed myself for round two in the ER with same symptoms only worse, I was miserable and knew I needed to see a surgeon. I had heard many great things about Dr. Heaton and I called the office, and they got me scheduled to see him that next day. I was so relieved they could get me in so fast. Dr. Heaton came in, sat down and took the time to look over my records, listened to me, and gave me my options and his recommendation to do surgery. I was terrified to have surgery, but knew it needed to be done and I trusted him. He put me on the schedule for surgery the following week. I was visited by him prior to them taking me to surgery (knowing that I was very nervous), ensuring that everything would be okay and I'd be so much better when I was done. Dr. Heaton and his team took great care of me from calming my nerves prior to surgery, checking on me before I was discharged home and even had a couple of follow up calls to make sure things were going well at home few days after surgery. Dr. Heaton is a very skilled surgeon and comes highly recommended by many, I knew that I was in good hands but he also showed me compassionate bedside manner and took time to listen to me as a patient. I'd highly recommend Dr. Heaton for your surgical needs.
