Patient Testimonials

Dr. Hegvik is a professional and very caring physician. He saved my life after a head on crash and I cant say enough about his care and personal concern. Five stars!

- Dr. Hegvik's Patient

Dr. Hegvik is one of the best doctors I’ve ever had. He did my gallbladder removal in 2019, and my gastric bypass in 2022. I’ve had very few post surgery complications with either surgeries. He is also very kind and compassionate and takes the time to listen to you and answer any questions and makes sure you understand! I was having a separate issue from my surgeries and he took the time to get me referred to the right specialist. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking any general surgeries!

- Dr. Hegvik's Patient

Dr. Hegvik and his staff were very thorough and patient with me. I felt like all my concerns were heard and addressed. Great overall experience!
