Dr. Hettinger..SIMPLY THE BEST! 10+ The surgery he did and after-care..etc. My finger looks sooo much better than I had hoped. Plus I was so grateful that he accomodated my situation with all of it. My husband has alzheimers it's difficult for me as his caretaker to make appts. for myself..and I'm not comfortable leaving him alone for long periods of time. Dr. Hettinger totally understood..and made every effort to assist me. I sooo appreciated his understanding. I can't say enough about him. In one word..ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!! Oops, that's 2 words..He's simply the BEST.
