Testimonies from ACL patients
When I tore my ACL I was devastated, but Dr. Heckman helped to assure me that I would come back better than ever and play again. He always made sure that I knew this was just a little setback and nothing that I couldn't overcome. Due to this he not only helped me physically but also helped me to overcome the mental obstacle that comes with this injury. Dr. Heckman would check in during PT sessions and make sure that I was doing everything right and on track, which was super reassuring. He also took the time to explain the things he was doing and what he was looking at, which not only helped me learn but it allowed me to understand my recovery and the things I was going through. Dr. Heckman's aggressive protocol and not having to wear a brace made returning to playing easy and I was confident in my knee. Going to Dr. Heckman was the best decision and I cannot thank him enough for everything he did for me.
Dr. Heckman has been nothing but great to me. When I first found out that I tore my ACL he was very comforting in the way he told me. He made sure to let me know that I would get back on that field better than ever. When a doctor has confidence in you it helps you to have confidence in yourself. I remember one time I was at Physical Therapy at the location right by his office. He comes in very often and checks on his patients and sees how they are doing. This was about six days after my surgery and he noticed that I had some limited range of motion. In a very nice, calm way he explained to me that he had to take me back to his office to drain my knee for the second time. I was extremely scared and nervous, but I had some relief because I knew I was in good hands. And because Dr. Heckman came and checked on me during my physical therapy session, I was able to get the right treatment that I needed at that time and was able to dodge a setback. I would recommend anyone with a shoulder or knee injury to go to Dr. Heckman because I can say from personal experience that you will be in the best hands possible.
My experience with doctor Heckman was incredible. There aren’t enough words that I can use to describe how blessed I am to have had such an amazing Doctor by my side. He has helped me get back to doing what I love with all of his constant support and guidance throughout my recovery. He is definitely a one of a kind Doctor and I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. Due to having two knee injuries, Doctor Heckman not only helped my conquer my injuries physically but mentally. He was always there to reassure me that I will be stronger than ever and with that he was right! I have never felt more confident in myself and I feel better than I ever had even before my knee surgeries. I am forever thankful to have such a phenomenal person to help me achieve my dreams.
My experience with Doctor Heckman is definitely something I will never forget. When I tore my ACL I thought my journey on coming back stronger was done, but when I met Dr. Heckman he really cared about me coming back one hundred percent and you were never treated as a number but as one of his own. He really motivated me to keep pushing no matter how bad the situation was. I wouldn’t be where I am if it wasn’t for him. Him and his team really did everything to help me spiritually, physically, and mentally get back to being me. For that I couldn’t ever thank him enough.
