Preferred Family Physicians has a habit of not responding to your pharmacies request for a refill. This occurred on multiple times. My pharmacy keeps a log of the contacts, both fax and phone. The one time I brought it to PFP's attention they accused the pharamacy of lying however the facts were simply not on their side. When I told the staff that was the case I was released as a patient. Generally speaking, Dr. Heidrick does not like to answer questions from patients. If you ask about why he is prescribing a specific medication or dosage he becomes defensive. His bed side manner could use some improvement.

I love Dr. Heidrick! He's very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain things to his patients! The wait is usually long, but completely worth it! I would recommend him to all my friends!

Dr. John Heidrick has been my doctor for many many years, he is my daughters doctor and my grand children's doctor. I cannot image my family without him. He always has time to listen. He has a wealth of knowledge and talks to you in laymans terms. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone, his staff are very impressive, his office space is very clean. Thank you doc...

I am 100% positive that his staff and self are well trained and listen to any and all medical problems you might have, he also treats my 94 year old grandmother that has some medcial issues.

Curious how the reviews are either very bad or very good. I gotta say I think he is exceptionally good. Given the realities of how doctors must practice medicine these days I think he makes it work for his patients better than most. But ya gotta meet him half way. Yeah, he's a very busy doctor. A lot of people pass through his office. And there is usually a long wait before he gets around to you. But when he's in the room with you you've got his full attention. I'm surprised and impressed with how much time he is willing to devote to his patient. If you have something to say he'll listen to you and fully explore & describe a diagnosis. If you don't have anything to say he'll cut to the chase, write you a prescription and out you go. So you gotta go in prepared to discuss your situation. Best go in with notes.

Bottom line: He works fast but thorough. He knows his stuff better than most doctors I've been to. And you can get in to see him on short notice. Yeah, his business ops - the office - seem a bit over-burdened. So you gotta work with them too. But they have always been available, considerate and helpful.

I myself have seen Dr Heidrick and I feel the he dis regards any and all other doctors recommendations and loves to ask if you want a prescription for something. He at any given time spent less then 10 minutes and usually writes 2 prescriptions and Say's let me know how you feel in a couple of weeks. HE'S A LEGAL DRUG DEALER

Dr.Heidrick is a nice guy and a good doctor. But he doesn't do the follow-up phone calls for a future appointment with him or a specialist. His assistants are supposed to do this. I had to call them and remind them that they were supposed to schedule an MRI that was recommended by Dr.Heidrick a week previous. Then I had to call them and remind them that they were supposed to set up an appointment with a neurosurgeon, again, something that Dr.Heidrick had recommended to me a week previous. His office staff was a week late and counting on both of his recommendations.
I'd probably still be waiting on that MRI had I not called. I can't recommend Dr.Heidrick because he is too busy. That's what the office staff told me: Sorry sir but we're really busy. He's a good doctor, but his office staff sucks. We're all only as good as our support.

Dr. Heidrick is a good family practice doctor. He is an osteopath so he has been trained to specifically treat the entire person and not just the medical condition. He is a good listener and works with the patient to try to find out what would be the best treatment not just for their condition, but that also fits with their lifestyle needs. Occasionally waiting times can be a little longer, but that is because he takes his time with each patient and doesn?t rush just to get to the next person. The office is very convenient and a one-stop place for your doctor?s appointment and they also have facilities for lab work, x-rays, other procedures/tests, and a pharmacy all under the same roof.
