Brian Vassar Heil, MD Reviews (359)

Breast Lift

Dr. Heil and his staff are very friendly and professional. The atmosphere of the facility was calm and comforting and everyone there makes me feel at ease at every visit. Dr. Heil did a wonderful job with my breast lift and augmentation. He is a perfectionist and truly an artist and I am very pleased with my results.

Breast Lift

Excellent, accommodating care! Very conscientious, professional, and supportive. Dr. Heil is a superb plastic surgeon! I trust him with family members, plan to send more family members to him, and recommend him to anyone that ever talks about having a plastics procedure.

Tummy Tuck

Everyone has been very helpful and informative and easy to reach when I have questions or concerns. I have had some minor complications that were handled quickly and with great care. All of my concerns have been addressed and I am well on my way to a full recovery.

Tummy Tuck

I cannot say I was satisfied or dissatisfied as I am not through the full recovery so I have not seen my final results. I am hoping the areas I see that are troublesome to me are just part of the recovery time. Plus I love the physician assistants but I would think you would see the surgeon more then consult and surgery day.

Breast Reduction

Excellent, Professional, Informative highly qualified staff! Doctor Heil and PA are Amazing! From the first phone call to after, and wound care.

Tummy Tuck

I felt everything was explained in clear terms that were easy to understand. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Heil has the best bedside manner. He was thorough during my consult and made me feel comfortable.

Breast Reconstruction

I just love the friendliest staff and the most informative staff. Love Zach & Dr. Heil. Would recommend anyone to go there. [patient name]

Breast Reduction

Right from my first consultation appt. I knew that I had made the right decision. Everything about Dr. Heil’s practice was exceptional. The staff was so friendly and the Drs. were great. I was very nervous but after my first 5 minutes I knew this was going to be good. It was! Thank you to everyone at Dr Heil’s practice!! The best thing about my experience was that everything was explained to me in great detail and I was never disappointed with anything.

Breast Reduction

Everyone from the initial consultation through the surgery and after, have been extremely professional. Not once did they make me feel stupid about my appearance. I had often thought about doing a breast reduction but never thought I would ever be approved. The staff made sure that they would do everything they could to get me approved......and they did

Tummy Tuck

Everyone was so kind and patient. Dr. Heil is so handsome. Aesthetically pleased

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

Liposuction

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

Tummy Tuck

Wait time was ridiculous and there was no urgency for my schedule.

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.

CoolSculpting®

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.

Liposuction

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

Tummy Tuck

GREAT EXPERIENCE!!GREAT CARING!!
