I switched to Dr. Hekier from Dr. Lee and could not be more pleased in the 4-5 years since then. He is in a league of his own. I would (and do) recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Hekier was kind, thorough and showed me the area of my lung that was in question on the scan. Really appreciated his taking the time to show me what was happening in my left lung - made me feel relief, instead of worry!
