I went to Dr. Heinrich for ENT. My first appointment I waited 35 minutes in the room waiting when I arrived on time. Apparently, I got an endoscopy, which is something that I found out when I got my bill for close to $500 for a 10 min appointment where he talked more about my adult braces than he did my sinuses, which is what I went in for. He also asked me if I had a significant other and when I said that I did, he asked which gender, and then asked if he added to the stress in my life.

Best plastic surgeon out there! He did an incredible job on my nose, looks natural and perfect. Everyone I know wants my nose when they find out I had it done! Office and staff is amazing too.

Dr. Heinrich is the consummate professional who takes the time to really listen to a patient's concerns. He's a highly skilled surgeon with a heart for treating the patient with caring concern and great skill.

Dr. Heinrich performed surgery to straighten my daughter's broken nose and open airway. Full surgery, anesthesia, re-break and set nose. Still not straight. #2 surgery, anesthesia, reset nose. Still not straight! Charged for office visit for 3rd consultation after 2 failures! Dr. Heinrich's comment "I never said it would be straight!" What plastic surgeon performs 2 full surgeries as this and is ok with a crooked nose as a result! Would have to start over as new patient. Look for real surgeon.

Wow! Talk about a sincere doctor who cares. I went in with a serious sinus infection and was treated with complete respect for my health concern and currently treating my ongoing infection. The staff team who supports the office is outstanding and user friendly. What a safe, great healthy holistic office environment offered.
