    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.

  • 9/26/2017

    Dr. Heinrich is such a caring doctor, and very on-point with issues for my son. She takes the time to understand my concerns and always offers appropriate solutions. I can't speak highly enough of her skills and knowledge and the quality of care she provides. She is a blessing.

    best dr ever

  • 4/28/2017

    We absolutely love Dr Heinrich and the Staff at Westgate Pediatrics. We have been going her for 14 years and have recommended many family and friends to them. The staff is always friendly, the doctors explain things to the children as well as the parents. I love that they call and check on my kids after they have been there and are feeling ill. It is like we are apart of a family and not just being seen by a doctors office. We live in Greensboro and drive to Winston to see them because they are great. All the doctors work as a team and the nurses remember us and call my kids by name even we they are not the ones treating them. The front office staff is always friendly and ask about all the kids when we come in not just the one that is being seen. Westgate Pediatrics is the epitome of Exceptional Care and going above and beyond.

  • 4/26/2017

    This visit especially *Dr. Heinrich seemed rushed and with limited time/attention for the patient at hand.

  • 3/21/2017

    Dr. Heinrich spoke to me by phone once my son and his father were in the exam room. She happily spoke to me concerning my son's visit.

  • 3/19/2017

    Dr. Heinrich is the greatest. My daughter has been seeing her since birth and is now 17. My son has also been seeing her since birth and is now 12.
