I saw Dr Deshmakh, found him to be very professional and dress the part. I found him kind in a professional mode, I didn't find him personal/controversially on either occasion. I think he did all he could for me, as I think I can't be help anymore than what has already been done. People speak well of these Dr's, I don't need surgery again, so I can only speak about my office visits. Wait time is to long for me. Front Office could use a little customer service training.
I found Dr. Heekin in 2003 through a friend that had a knee replacement done. I went to see Dr. Heekin in 2004 and had total knee replacement on both my knees.
I have never known a more caring and competent doctor. He truly enjoys what he is doing and truly enjoys helping people and relieving their pain.
He has performed surgery on countless of my friends and their relatives. I love this man and his staff are great too.
After 7 years of searching for a caring, concerned orthopaedic surgeon for chronic, severe pain in my left shoulder, I was blessed with a referral to Heekin Orthopaedics. At my first visit w/Dr. Deshmukh, I was taken with his honesty, openness and concern. He didn't poke my shoulder as some had, nor did he laugh at my symptoms, as many had. He was very straightforward. MRI review indicated surgery was a priority in order to avoid losing the use of my arm. Gently and truthfully, he showed me on the MRI exactly where and what was damaged, and explained the consequences; what to expect with surgery. I was so very, very relieved. Surgery was done 3.5 weeks ago, and I've begun PT. These doctors are absolutely wonderful!
I was referred to Dr. Heekin for a knee problem that had been plaguing me for a few months. At my first appt., Dr. Heekin was very thorough going through everything to try and diagnose the problem. He immediately ordered an MRI to which they found a torn meniscus. I had Arthroscopic surgery scheduled within the month and couldn't be more pleased with the recovery. Dr. Heekin and his staff are great and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
