How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Heller presented himself as a kind and courteous professional. I appreciated him taking the time to answer all of my questions and addressing all of my concerns. During my examination, he always told me what he was going to do next and made sure that I approved before going forward. Dr. Heller told me that he has been practicing for over 40 years and recently sold his business to Schweiger Dermatology. Having never visited a dermatologist before, I found his affable manner and professionalism to greatly put me at ease. I highly recommend him.

How was your experience with the doctor?You don't get much time with him, but he's the best. His knowledge is vast and his decisions are so quick it's hard to comprehend what's happening til the visit is over. (A nurse or PA is always there to recap.) And he has the most amazing skill with a needle I've ever seen in my life. Gave me 6 cortisone injections IN THE TOPS OF MY HANDS and I literally felt nothing. His masterful skills make him extremely popular, hence the short visit time. For me, it's worth a bit of a wait and a quick appointment to know I can trust his judgment completely. I have had longer appointments with him, though; if you need a longer consultation, I'd mention it ahead of time.

How was your experience with the doctor?Unacceptable wait time of 50 minutes. As soon as he walked in, he was polite but looked ready to leave and get on to the next one. He's too busy printing dollars with high throughput to make for an efficient schedule that would respect his patients' time. That said, his bedside manner is good and he appeared competent. Wouldn't recommend unless you have a serious condition.

How was your experience with the doctor?I wouldn't come back. Not only was the wait time too long, but when I finally saw Dr Heller, he was extremely quick and barely asked anything and was quick to biospy a spot my family's other doctors had no concern about. I'm not sure if it's just a business to him.

How was your experience with the doctor?I came in for a very specific reason, which was a skin condition due to too much sun. He didn't even take a look at my shoulders and why I am came in, and instead went straight to my back to try point out a mole, and said he wanted to check for Skin cancer. Within 2 min, he mentioned skin cancer when I came in for something else. I would not recommend Bruce to anyone who wants an honest opinion about something.

How was your experience with the doctor?Had some dryness and redness for months. Once I finally decided to see someone, Dr Heller was a great choice. Got a quick appointment, he diagnosed the issue, prescribed a gel, and it was clear in days. Plus, we did an allergen panel and I found out something new about myself!

How was your experience with the doctor?Excellent true skin doctor. One of the old school ones that is forced into the new model of healthcare unfortunately. That said Dr. Heller is well aware of ALL skin conditions. I had an abcess on my ear and a groin rash and acne. He prioritized and said, this abcess is a major problem we need to address ASAP, here is what is needed to fix your groin rash (some other doc had been giving me the wrong thing to address), and lets fix the acne another time. My absess has since been drained/fixed (not here). My groin rash that I have had for over a year that couldn't be 'treated' has been resolved as well. A REAL doctor.. Yes he will rush through like all doctors b/c of the new model of healthcare HMO's / "healthcare for all". This means there is less time for actual payers.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Heller is the best doctor I have ever seen. He was very attentive to my story, as I have been dealing with various sickeness for over a year. Many doctors brushed me off and told me I was too stressed, however Dr. Heller really listened and took time. He did every test for me that he could and reassured me that he would figure out what was going on with me. I would highly recommend him, as he is very knowledgeable and I have complete trust in him.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Bruce Heller and his medical assistance are one of the best medical providers in my life. They are kind, knowledgeable, professional and responsible. He explained very well about my symptoms and medications and answered all my questions. They went an extra mile taking a biopsy to find out what is happening. I am very happy with them and recommend them.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Heller was so thorough, patient in answering my questions, and made me feel extremely comfortable. He told me exactly what was happening (I had my eyes closed as the light in my face was very bright) at every point of the way. Also I was pleasantly surprised when he was actually the doctor who saw me because ZocDoc sometimes assigns other doctors. Highly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Heller is incredibly nice and seems to be a fine physician. I have no issues with the medical care I received from him. The low score is because the office regularly seems to run 30-40 minutes behind schedule. It is clear that this office bites off more appointments than they can accommodate, or that they simply don’t care. I’d recommend seeking care elsewhere.

How was your experience with the doctor?Facility was nice, modern and bright. Front office staff friendly and welcoming. It’s a busy office as there are at least 4-5 docs working the space. The Medical assistant took my medical history and the reason I was there to see Dr Heller. Be prepared! And thorough here because the MA will explain to Dr what the reason you are there. You will be asked to show the area in question that needs attention and then a diagnosis or treatment plan will follow. Dr will ask if you have any more concerns or questions if no, you’re free to go. If yes, further discussion of issue. I didn’t, so it was a fast appointment. I prefer quick thorough Doc appointments so I really like this practice.

How was your experience with the doctor?I broke out all over my face early 2017 and I went to Dr. Heller. He took one look at my face and immediately prescribed a couple of things for me to use. I've been using the same products ever since. He's super friendly, really knows what he's doing, and every time my acne flares up and I go see Dr. Heller it clears up right away. Awesome doctor.
