    • I saw instant pleasing results Immediately after my procedure. Day 4 & the healing process is going as expected. Minimal pain. Feels more like an intense workout. Watching my diet & following all post directions. I can't wait to see my formation. Each day it improves. Best decision yet!!!

    • Dr. Heron is amazing! I have named him Dr. Gone! I have been battling the bulge after 2 kids and ni matter what diet or ercercise, I just couldn't get rid of this stubborn fat! I recommend Smart Lipo to anyone that will listen! This is definitely the smarter and safer alternative to having a tummy tuck!

    • Dr. Heron was very personable, he spent a long time going over the diet with me. He also gave me a detailed overview of the history of the diet and the company. It's evident he cares greatly about the people who come to him and the community at large. I appreciate that he spent a lot of time with me; I believe it may have made him late for his next appointments and also what delayed my appointment in the first place. In any case, I look forward to working with him throughout this process.

    • Chin and neck snatched- i had a double chin and didnt like my appearance profile look from the side. Dr. Heron took time to explain in detail the produce, and answer all questions or concerns.

    • I had smart lipo 3 days ago and I honestly don't know what to expect. I can see a difference in my stomach and my arms but I was expecting to see more. My doctor (who is awesome) told me that I won't see major results for 5-6 months and to be patient and follow the instructions.. I'm kind of sore, but the meds help with that. I'll keep you guys posted on my progress- I go in for my follow up...

    • I had Lipo there; I should never have done it at this clinic. I’ve spent thousands trying to fix my uneven, dimpled, dented legs and knees. I read a few RealSelf reviews afterwards, and realized I should have steered clear of the doctor and clinic. If only I’d known before; I could have saved myself the heartache and multiple attempts to fix the issues that resulted.

    • My results look terrible from the very beginning but I was told it was swelling so I believed dr.heron. After about 7 months I still looked the same as far as the pockets of fat still left on my stomach (upper and lower), once I finally was able to be seen I requested to have my stomach done over and he demanded that I pay him again or he was not going to do it. Even though I had fat pockets...

    • Hello World! I am 25 years old. I have had three pregnancies, one of which I carried twins and all were delivered by c-section. I had smart-lipo done on Dec. 18, 2015, and did not achieve the results I wanted. I have noticed a significant difference but just not the vision/agreement that was discussed at my pre-op appointment. The procedure was only able to remove 2 1/2 inches of the 5 inches...

    • I had smart lipo done and from day one I saw that it was not correct but I was told by the doctor that is was swelling and it would go away but almost a year has passed and my arms are completely uneven, my sides are uneven, and my stomach has missed areas and when I asked the doctor to fix my stomach (and I volunteered to pay the non surgical fees ) he said not unless I paid again. So now I am on the hunt for a BORED CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON (which he is not )that can fix what Dr. Heron has done.

    • I lost over 20 pounds on his program! He helped me with not only my weight but with my migraines. I could go on and on. He is a miracle worker. He literally gave me my life back.

    • Very strange this physician would incorporate the great blue heron pic in his website. No comparison. Are you a physician or a bird watcher???

    • I did lose weight seeing Dr. Heron. If you follow phase 1 you will def lose the weight. My problem was the help after, I didn't know how to eat off of phase 1 and incorporate other foods, so sadly I gained some weight back. It can be kind of hectic and rushed in there in the mornings. Also, his wife can be a bit rude sometimes and you are not really sure who to take direction from. I would give it one more shot to see if I can maintain it this time. It just felt like I was on phase 1 and then I was done. No support other than the book they give you. It is also very pricey and that still doesn't cover the B12 shots.

    • I started the weight loss program with Dr Heron after he closed his medical center. He has truly found his niche. His knowledge in nutrition is second to none. I had to lose 30 pounds to save my military career and did so successfully in 2 months. He also offered me a free month if I met his goal. With such motivation, I couldn't help but save my career, lose weight and feel great. His staff was just as motivating, cheering me on as I lost 5 pounds, 10 pounds until I reached my 30 pound goal. I was always happy to visit because I left with the support and information I need to change my lifestyle and safely lose weight - all without medication. Dr. Heron knows his stuff. I would let him help all of my family and friends. He cares.

    • Completed the weight loss program with minimal results. Followed it step by step. Never really recieved guidance from him, only his wife (who is not a health care professional). On top of that he was unorganized (lost my paperwork), forgetful at times, rushed through my appointment to accommodate another patient. Seemed annoyed by my frequent questions. I received better medical advice from my own personal physician. Truly disappointed. Don't waste your money.

    • Dr. Heron and all of the staff have always been helpful and friendly. I haven't been in to see him for quite some time, but I still follow his guidelines and advice and when I need to get back on track I always turn to his recommended diet plan. I had great success with his program and always found him to be honestly interested in helping me.

My visit yesterday was great and I look forward to meeting my goals with Dr. Heron's assistance.

    • Rushed me through my appointment and actually gestured for me to speak faster while I was explaining my symptoms to him (I had gotten out about two words when this happened). Didn't really explain much to me, just gave me some meds and referred me to a doctor who was no longer seeing new patients.

    • Dr. Heron has demonstrated startling lack of concern in his patients' health. Furthermore, Dr. Heron doesn't actually listen to what you say-- he's much more interested in getting in whatever lecture he has on the tip of his tongue. For example, when I told him that I had an allergic reaction to a bee sting and used my epipen in response, he proceeded to lecture me for five minutese on the importance of using an epipen. In addition, his office staff is disorganized-- they claim to have lost documents that I have hand-delivered and to have no knowledge of events I've personally called to tell them about. One specialist had to call repeatedly after faxing a request for referral almost a month in advance to get a response.

    • I loved visiting Dr. Heron. He was very patient, answered all my questions and seemed knowledgable. He's one of the nicest doctors I've encountered in the area. Made my visit a pleasant one.
