My son has been a patient of Dr. Heyman's for six years, since shortly after my son was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease.

Dr. Heyman is quiet, calm, friendly, warm, caring and authentic with kids and with parents. As my son has grown into a teen, Dr. Heyman has smoothly adapted to my son's growing desire to have a voice in his own medical care.

Dr. Heyman includes parents as part of the treatment team to the extent parents are comfortable with that role. He is honest and will tell you when he doesn't know the answer to something or isn't sure how things are going to turn out.

He is always up to date on the latest research and clinical findings - often because those findings are coming from the post-docs under his guidance.

Dr. Heyman answers his own phone. He replies to his e-mails - it may only be one or two words from his iphone but he never fails to reply! If it's an emergency he or his NP work you in somehow with someone. And they work well with our local pediatrician since we live about 100 miles away.

As you can tell, we love Dr. Heyman and can't say enough good things about him.

And he has terrific doctors and nurse practitioners working with him too. Laura Cook and Betsy and all the other folks there are fabulous.
