Fabulous care from Dr. Heit. Was extremely clear from the very beginning of my contact with him about the details of what my condition was, my options, and what exactly the treatment would consist of. He spent an incredible amount of time at every stage with me and my wife (together or separately as applicable). My colleagues spoke very highly of him and I can see why. I feel very fortunate to have had such excellent care from him (and from all my Stanford physicians).
Dr. Heit is a warm and understanding person who has a positive attitude that makes the patient comfortable. He has been tremendously helpful to both me my late husband.
His clarity and explanations made it simple for me to understand. Many thanks.
Explained the clinical situaton and options & pros & cons in detail but fully understandable to both me and my wife. Outstanding!
Excellent doctor who thoroughly answers my many questions and concerns.

Dr. Heit was very professional and took all the time needed to come to a decision about any treatment I might need. He was courteous and very easy for a lay person to talk to. I actually enjoyed the visit.
He was kind, comforting, and thoroughly explained everything.
Dr Jeremy Heit is a very knowledgeable and experienced doctor. He really care about his patient and make him very comfortable.
Dr. Heit is throughly listens my side if issues. He explains all the details about possible procedure and it’s outcome. He did not persuade me to make any decisions to have the surgery for my lumbar. He simply said, listen to your body and your pain level. He also indicated that he is always available in case my need raises its level for possible surgery. He said, he seemed very confident that I can continue for caring myself at home
fantastic doctor
The best
He is a great doctor because he is concerned about his pasients
Very informative about everything, a excellent Dr. Thank you very much Dr. Heit
Great doctor. Very helpful and positive
This was my first visit with Jeremy Heit. He made me feel very comfortable. His questions were on point and showed knowledge and thoughtfulness for my situation.
Dr. Heit was absolutely outstanding.
Dr. Heit explained my CT scan in detail so I could understand. When I initially went to the ER it wasn't explained very well which left me with a lot of questions as I waited to see Dr. Heit at my follow-up appointment.
there diffinitly the best care !
I believe Dr. Heit is a special person. He is careful, friendly, and one looks forward to seeing him. He explains problems clearly and completely. He is the kind of person one automatically likes.
Dr. Heit and his staff are the best
Dr. Heit has exceptional communication skills. I came to the appointment very nervous about having an injection at the top of my neck. By the time I left, I was confident he could do it.
trust
After visit, I felt total confidence of being in the best hands. Dr. Heit was excellent, and superior than my PAMF physician.
Dr. Heit is the best!
Best experience I've ever had in a clinic setting. Wonderful care, sympathy, conversations and explanations. Dr. Heit would be recommended strongly.
Dr. Heit and team were a pleasure to deal with.
Good.
Its unlikely that I will have the opportunity to recommend Dr. Heit, but if the opportunity arose I would highly recommend him.
Dr Heit is the best doctor I have ever came across. He is very intelligent and confident in his speciality thus putting me at ease that I am in the best hands. His bed side manner is definitely something other doctors should strive to achieve. His sense of humor is very refreshing. Unlike other doctors he is able to make the situation light and put a smile on his patient's face. I am thankful that I was referred to him and forever grateful to him for everything he has done for me thus far.
Dr. Heit was extremely well-prepared, having read my (rather long) chart before we began our consultation. Having seen three different specialty providers (for the various aspects of my illness) was confusing for me, and Dr. Heit's explanations about where each specialty fit into the plan was greatly appreciated.
Dr. Heit's intervention saved my life! Very grateful & got second chance in life. THANK YOU & wow cannot be said enough!
Dr. Heit was great. He listened to me and my wife and gave us understandable answers to all our questions. He treated us like real people, not just another case to study or hurry to the next patient.
Dr. Heit is an INCREDIBLE doctor! He's a super hero as far as I'm concerned! Completely caring, intelligent, great listener, easy to communicate with, compassionate. 100% recommend him to others.
Love love love Dr. Heit.
Dr. Heit was AMAZING, he discussed my health care needs in a very professional manner, but, in language i could understand. He spent a LOT of time with me and I never felt rushed or hurried. He's GREAT!!
Dr. Jeremy Heit is incredible. I'm so glad I had my cerebral aneurysm taken care of by him. He was understanding, clear, and thoughtful when it came to explaining my situation. He had the perfect personality to keep me comfortable and at ease throughout my pre-op, procedure, and post-op. He's the reason I decided to do my procedure at Stanford instead of UCSF or another hospital.
Love love love Dr. Heit. 1. No meds.
All great.
All very good.
I trust Dr. Heit without thinking twice very thorough.
