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!

Dr Hekier gives the attention I feel necessary, and remembers small things from between visits (or else keeps good notes...)

First, let me say my disease is controlled and not catastrophic. Doctor is very attentive and the discussion about symptoms and medications very through. I had questions about the medication specifically and doctor was very direct in explaining detailed effects of medication, shelf life, frequency. Thank you
