Brian Vassar Heil, MD Reviews (347)

Breast Reduction

Thoroughly discussed all aspects of surgery. Asked and answered my concerns. Loved the PA who worked with me and the lady at the desk Deb. Dr Heil was thorough and explained what would take place. Totally satisfied. Only waiting on PT and insurance so I can move forward


There was only one time where I had to wait in the exam room for a really long time. It was no big deal. I understand sometimes this happens

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Heil provided a very personable, yet professional, consultation. His warm disposition made me feel very comfortable in choosing him to be my surgeon. He has more professional credentials than any other surgeon I had consulted with. Dr. Heil provided a personalized consultation and was not pushy. He allowed me to make my own choices on sizing, but properly guided me through the right surgical needs for my specific wants. I am very happy to choose Dr. Heil and am looking forward to my surgery.


Yes very [satisfied], but I would like to get the pricing emailed to me. I left a voicemail with my email address. It was given to me at the visit but I misplaced it.

Breast Reduction

Just waiting on insurance

Breast Augmentation

The consultation was very informative. Dr. Heil and his staff took their time and answered all of my questions. I was unsure of what implant to choose and I was welcomed back into the office a second time to retry all of the different sizes. I have more confidence. I do have a little trouble when it comes to working out. The gym is a huge part of my life and there are things that I can no longer do. This is a setback but the increased confidence is well worth it.


Dr. was great & easy to talk about all questions . pleasant, professional, nice, friendly, & great place

Tummy Tuck



Overall comfortable feeling about the surgeon and his work. I'm hopeful that my procedure is as successful as his previous surgeries for others who had the same procedure done. Staff was professional and knowledgeable as well.

Breast Reconstruction

I was very comfortable with everyone there. Dr took his time in explaining the procedure's and what his plans were.Upset you couldn't make payments at his place. You had to pay with a certain company only..

Breast Augmentation

My appointment was at 11. My wait time in the waiting room was very brief but I waited nearly 40 min in the exam room for the doctor after i saw the pa. Everyone was friendly but I didn’t feel that the patient coordinator was very friendly. She seemed very short with me.

Breast Lift

From the first contact with Dr. Heil's staff was personal and compassionate. The staff seems to be very connected with the patients and their needs as well as what they can provide for information and details. Stephanie/PA was great to work with and I took the opportunity to meet with her on 8/24 to discuss my questions and ensure that I understood the procedures correctly. Dr. Heil was very respectful and interested in I was looking to accomplish and honest about what was achievable. Very comforting. I'm looking forward to my surgery procedures and feel that I have chosen the right surgeon and team.


Everything about Dr Heil and Staff were professional and polite I can wear shorts again
