I feel that the ability to listen is one of the most important characteristics that a physician should have. Only after listening to your patients’ needs, cares, and concerns, can an appropriate treatment plan be created.

Always pleased with my doctors and the clinic.
Dr. Hettinger explained my treatment options very well and he made sure all of my questions were answered. He was thorough, kind, and respectful. I would highly recommend Dr. Hettinger. The LPN that was with him was also very nice. They both made me feel at ease during my appointment.
Very pleasant appointment - no complaints
Everyone was so nice. I also really like the fact that I could see the doctor and he sent me for X-rays and PT right in the same building. It didn't require additional appointments to get it taken care of.
For the first time and through many other doctors, he LISTENED AND HEARD ME! And responded. I am grateful! Finally, I can get to the bottom of what is happening.
Great care, great people, great place. Keep doing it how and with who you you are as I couldn't be more pleased. You guys are 10 out of 10!
I am truly amazed at the excellent way you serve your patients, more than grateful, and have been an excellent service.
Very informative visit. Staff very personable.
He listened!! I have been to several doctors over the last year to talk about the pain I was having. He is the first to really listen! The assistant also reassured me I was in good hands. I appreciate that. I LOVE Froedtert. I trust Froedtert! Thank you!
Excellent as always!
Surgeon is kind and considerate personally calling myself, my husband and my sons hematologist to calm my frantic fears, and seeing my son as soon as possible to inspect his injury to prepare for surgery. Such a wonderful man.
Doctor Hettinger was very informational and helpful.
Very knowledgeable and efficient
I originally went to another large orthopedic facility and was basically dismissed and told that nothing could be done about the arthritis in my thumb.I spoke with a friend who had his carpal tunnel surgery by Dr Hettinger and he said that he was very happy with the results.I saw Dr.Hettinger and he has changed my life I am now able to use my hand the way I could 20 years ago.I am so gratefull.I have already recommended him to friends.
Dr. Hettinger and his staff were very attentive to my concerns and helped me very effectively.
The staff was incredible. Especially dr hettinger
Thankful for the great care I received from a great doctor. He's the best
Dr Hettinger is by far the best physician that I have had contact with in the Froedtert system. He is personable, knowledgeable and makes you feel as though you are his only patient. Please find more physicians like Dr Hettinger.
