I've been seeing Dr Heap for almost 20 years. We followed her to Facey [...] She always responds to any questions we have and is well on top of our conditions. Now that we have My Chart, we can message her with any concerns. I see her every three months. No bad at all.

Dr. Leah Heap has been my Primary Care Physician for twenty years. When she transferred to Facey, I followed her. Dr. Heap, in my estimation, does not do anything "bad." Only GOOD!

10/22/2020
This practitioner is excellent for a GP. I have historically not had very knowledgable GPs or GPs that didn't take my root cause approach seriously. If i didn't fit inside their box or what THEY wanted then they got irritated. Dr. Heap gets where I'm coming from and listens to that.

My experience was wonderful. The way patients are being cared for during the pandemic is well planned and excited. I felt safe and well cared for. Some of the questions were hard to put an answer that was perfect. I came to the office for blood pressure check up and routine results on blood test. So, I can have my medications refilled. Because of the shut down my earlier appointments were cancelled. Dr. Heap is wonderful. Thank you again for all your help.
