This office now has a very bubbly and friendly receptionist. We liked her a lot. Some in the past....not so friendly.We think Dr. Hedera is the best around. Saw him in another state before he moved to Louisville and still see him today. Hes thougful, always listens to what we have to say, tries to make things very clear for my husband to understand, and I feel he is one of the most cordial and intelligent Doctors that we have!!!

I saw the dr for the first time. He suspects parkinsons disease. He was very thorough & gave me one prescription. His office nurse was very personable & efficient. I have to go back in three months. He didn't make me feel like he was in a hurry like a lot of doctors do.
