Dr. Hekiert treated me for sudden hearing loss and was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, compassionate, extremely responsive and took the time to explain my treatment options. When other practices had waiting periods for weeks, ENT and Allergy Associates recognized the urgency for treatment and saw me right away. I can't say enough about the great work (and people) I've found at this practice. I recovered 100% of my hearing after being totally deaf in one ear... Highly recommended.

Dr Hekiert fixed a sinus problem I have lived with my entire life! I have seen other ENT's, but none who bothered to try to find the source of my chronic infections and cure me! She is caring and committed, a trait rarely found in health care today.

She has shown me respect and sincere caring over the years I have been going to her. I have unconditional faith, trust & love for this woman. I appreciate how she tries to see me in my "emergency" mode. Dr. H successfully performed sinuplasty on my last year. Although I was nervous, she calmed me and eased my anxiety.

I became a patient of Dr. Hekiert’s several years ago when I was suffering from a thyroid condition. I went to many doctors over many months, but none of them could alleviate my symptoms. It wasn’t until I went to Dr. Hekiert that I was given an effective treatment plan. Dr. Hekiert was able to help me in ways that other doctors could not because she is knowledgeable, diligent, and concise in her work. It is apparent upon first meeting her that she is a highly skilled doctor, but it is something greater than that which separates her from the rest. She is empathetic and compassionate toward my concerns and she goes above and beyond to make me feel important and understood. She makes my health a priority to her by checking in on me or by patiently answering all of my questions. When seeing her engage with other patients or her staff, it is obvious that the warmth and thoughtfulness she has shown me is not unique. While medicine is a science that can be taught, the kind-heartedness and altruism that Dr. Hekiert possesses cannot. The rapport she has with her patients is rare and unmatched. Dr. Hekiert’s extraordinary capabilities as an ENT combined with her considerate nature make her the best doctor that I have ever been treated by.

I have been seeing Dr. Hekiert for the past couple of years and each time I go, I am treated as part of her family. Dr. Hekiert is very knowledgeable and accurate in diagnosis. She guided me through terrible sinus problems where she even called my home to see how I was feeling. In addition, she remembers everything I told her, even if it was 2 years ago. I have seen many ENTs in NJ and I usually do not recommend doctors; however, Dr. Hekiert is the best and I highly recommend her. The office staff is also extremely friendly and accommodating. For any ears, nose, and throat problems, your answers are here with Dr. Hekiert and her wonderful staff.

OMG....I love Dr. Hekiert. She has been a godsend for me. Started with her 2 years ago. I've been suffering since I was 4 years old from allergies, other sinus problems and recurring sinus infections, and at 59 years old, I was at my wits end. Had gone to other ENT's for treatment and even sinus surgery and got no relief. I was miserable. I saw Dr. Hekiert on my first visit. This has to be one of the best choices I ever made. She interviewed me for over 45 minutes before she even examined me. After several tests, including a CT of my skull/sinus', we met again to review all my test results. That meeting was life changing for me. I had had one of these tests going back many years ago, and surgery to "correct" the so called problem. Dr. Hekiert showed me the CT scan and showed/told me something my old ENT should have told me but didn't......that I had NO SINUS' in my forehead and had some malformations in the sinus' I have. She said she could correct the problem but first I'd have to go through a non surgical maintenance process to get the infections under control and get my sinus' healthy. The infections have decreased significantly. So far, so good. And surgery will happen when I choose. I have complete confidence in her and I highly recommend her to anyone who has sinus problems.

When my daughter had severe vertigo and begged us to figure out was wrong, we went from the pediatrician to neurologist and back to the pediatrician before turning to Dr. Hekiert. She was very calming and very thorough with her diagnosis. She made sure my daughter got the tests she needed quickly so that we could know the cause and assure her that an end to her dizziness was in sight.

Dr. Hekiert is honestly one of the most compassionate, intelligent and patient doctors I have ever experienced. She is an excellent diagnostician and was able to accurately diagnose my son while several others were not! She has a great bedside manner and explained procedures and treatment in clear and concise terms that even my child was capable of understanding. I have and will continue recommending her to any family & friends!

Dr. Heikert was patient kind and extremely helpful in treating a condition that other doctors had ignored. She clearly cares about her work and the health of her patients.

Dr Hekiert is one of the best doctors I have ever met both in expertise and personality. I am convinced that she has added many quality years to my life by performing trans robtoic surgery for my sleep apnea. I am so happy that I decided to go ahead with this procedure and I would highly recommend Dr. Hekiert to anyone.

Went for the first time to Dr. Hekiert yesterday and I felt so comfortable there. If you are new make sure you get their early so they can input your paper work into computer. Wait did take a while but I think its 'cause I was new and due to traffic didn't get there 20 minutes early. When I get into Dr. Hekierts room the nurse explained everything completely to me of what Hekiert would be doing. First time I ever had something explained to me in a doctors office so well. Also have to say first office where everyone who works there is very nice. Before I make this any longer I'll just say if you have an ENT problem go to her because she is VERY helpful.

BEST !!!! SHE IS VERY DEDICATED AND HELPED ME. SHE WAS THE ONLY DR. TO HELP ME..I SAW 4 DOCTORS BEFORE I SAW HER AND SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE TO HELP ME. I THOUGHT I WAS GOING DEAF BUT OH NO SHE HELPED ME. GREAT DEDICATED AND CARING IS ALL I CAN SAY ABOUT THIS DR. A BLESSING TO THE MEDICAL PROFESSION.

Dr. Hekiert is very knowledgeable and very thorough. She is patient asks all the right questions and explains all of the procedures or tests that the patient is about to undergo. Her staff is simply the best. A very efficient office and very professional. They send you electronic reminders of your appointment and if the doctor can't keep your appointment the staff let's her patients know immediately.

Dr. Hekiert takes time with her patients. She explains the procedures and is one of the most caring and thorough physicians that I have used. After surgery she contacted me gave me a phone number to call should I have any problems. I have referred her to several of my friends with absolutely no reservation. She and her staff (especially Iwonna) are great.
