Dr. Heyman took on a challenging operation for my wrist that other surgeons would not, and happy to report that with his skill and my attention and care in the healing process, my wrist is better than ever! Thank you Doc Heyman 😁

From what I have seen, the man really knows his stuff. Mr.Heyman and his staff, are very polite, kind, and honest. If there is a chance he can fix it. I wouldn’t bet against him. From scheduling appointments, to CT Scan, to surgery. They have a fairly successful plan to getting you back to 100%. And they do it fast. I highly recommend these guys and girls. From the receptionist to the scanner person. (Job titles to long) to assistants, to the surgeon.My opinion there the best in Denver. If I can type this good with a broke hand. Can’t wait till after surgery. lol.Highly recommend this crew. Great Job

I really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Heyman yesterday. He was not only knowledgeable, but as important, he was curious. He expressed genuine concern for my well-being and did a great job in explaining my treatment options in a way that made me feel like I was able to make an educated choice on my care.

I went in to see Dr Heyman for an accident I had. Not only did he and his nurse put me at ease with their senses of humor, but went above and beyond in treating me with their professionalism and level of care. My gratitude goes beyond words!

Great, compassionate surgeon. He spent a lot of time with me and explained the procedure, the recuperation and healing process. My right thumb surgery was a huge success and I'm out of pain. No other surgeon I met with gave me more than 15 minutes of their time. Dr. Heyman will be fixing my left arthritic thumb in the next few months

Dr. Heyman was very friendly. He really took the time to actually "see" me and the whole story. I really appreciate his knowledge and assessment of my injury. This was an amazing experience and I'd recommend him to friends and family. Thank you Dr Heyman!
