Dr. Daniel Heckman’s Approach to care
“It is my intention to provide each of my patients with the highest quality, evidence-based care available. When formulating your treatment plan, I believe that it is important to involve you, the patient, as much as possible. The first step is to understand who you are as an individual and to identify your specific priorities and goals. Then I focus on helping you to learn about your injury or ailment as well as the most reasonable treatment options. This approach allows us to work together to develop a personalized plan of care and to attain the best possible outcome.
