Dr. Heftler: Chronic Pain

I have living with chronic pain for years from a 14 year-old injury … I didn’t realize how used to it I had gotten. For the last 2 1/2 years, the pain became debilitating and I’ve gone to SO MANY doctors with no answers or guidance except physical therapy and meds and stretching! CLEARLY this wasn’t helping. One day I saw an ad for ONS on TV,  then a billboard on the highway and decided it was worth one more try. While they didn’t have insurance compatibility yet in Harrison which is more convenient for me …  they did in Greenwich and I went to see Dr. Heftler.  I ran a couple minutes late and was stressing because usually doctors’ offices are so rude when you run late ….. but  she couldn’t have been more patient, understanding and put me at ease.  At  my first visit, Dr. Heftler was super helpful and asked me questions no other doctors had.  He prescribed  something no one else had that helped to slowly reduce the pain. I’ve had 5 MRIs and not one doctor asked if I had had one with contrast until Dr. Heftler. I then had one with contrast and he found the problem. Now onto the next steps. I couldn’t be more relieved, grateful, validated and appreciative. Thank you so much for thinking outside the box to figure it out. You have no idea what you did for me. I will recommend this establishment to everyone I know … (5 star review on Google written by Essie C.)
