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.

July 15, 2019
I had a cyst on my face that was becoming obvious in pictures. I am getting married in November and I was so stressed out bout how it would look in pictures. I called Dr. Hettingers office and was able to be seen for the consult within a couple of weeks. I assumed this would be the first of at least two appointments before he would be able to remove it but he was able to take it off that day during my appointment! I am so appreciative for the care and concern I received, I would absolutely see him again and refer him to friends and family!
July 13, 2019
I couldn't ask for a better, more caring Dr. than Dr. Hettinger. He's by far the best doctor I have ever had and would recommend him and his team to anyone. He always goes above and beyond!

Have been working with this provider for over a year now. Since my first breast reconstruction failed due to infection, I'm moving ahead with a different reconstruction procedure, but with the same provider - which definitely shows my trust in his abilities.
