    Dr. Heinrich is the very best! Professional, smart and kind!

  • 6/26/2018

    We love visiting Dr. Heinrich! She is always so pleasant and we feel as though she genuinely cares about our son. Dr. Heinrich took the time to learn about my husband and I during Avery's first visit and although we have only had to see her for check-ups for the most part, thankfully, she remembers those things she learned (e.g., what we do for work).

  • 6/1/2018

    Love Dr. Heinrich!!!! she is AWESOME! she genuinely cares about her patients and it shows.

    Always a pleasure to work with Dr. Heinrich and Westgate!!!!

    Dr. Marcella is amazing! The best healthcare provider in town. She really care about her patients. Calling us after hours to check on the child.

  • 5/14/2018

    Marcella is the best!!! Marcella always treats my daughter and me with respect. NCBH needs 1,000 more Marcellas!!

  • 5/10/2018

    Dr. Heinrich is so patient and answers all of my questions. she makes sure you understand and agree with the plan of care. she even called the next day which was a Saturday to check on Eleanor and make sure she was okay. We recommend Dr Heinrich to everyone we know!

  • 3/29/2018

    Dr heinrich is the best! i wish she did adult care! I know she will always be there for us and even calls late in the evening if needed. I love her!

  • 3/28/2018

    Dr. Heinrich is really great. She took the time to talk with me about what my personal goals and plans were along with my health concerns. Every time I see her she is in such a great mood and definitely helps settle my general nerves about being at the doctors. She also has followed up with me about any test results and always does so in a timely manner. I have loved having her as my physician and hate that I have to transfer to a Family Medicine doctor since I am getting older!

  • 3/15/2018

    I am so elated to have found Dr. Heinrich! I was concerned with a number of things that were not handled to my satisfaction by a previous provider and Dr. Heinrich completely alleviated all concerns. I love how she uses research to back her practices. My husband and I look forward to her being our son's pediatrician for years to come.

  • 12/19/2017

    Very confident in Dr Heinrich as she throrougly reviews circumstances every time we visit her. She takes her time and makes sure she hadn't missed anything before making diagnosis or recommendation for further testing.

  • 12/17/2017

    Dr. Heinrich has been my doctor since I was an infant. She knows my medical history. She knows me as a person. She always gives her time in an unhurried manner, listens, and then explains any treatment that is needed. She is always friendly and informative. This was my last visit since I am now an adult. I wish that I could have her as my family doctor.

  • 9/28/2017

    Dr. Heinrich is the absolute best! Although she isn't my son's regular provider, she was very knowledgeable about his medical history and very thorough with explaining her plan for resolving the medical issue that we were there for. I was so happy to have had her see us on such short notice.
