"Went in for my colonoscopy, was a bit worried because was my first time. I can't believe how amazingly easy and pain free the whole thing was. They put me under, I was out like a light within 2 minutes. Next thing I know they wake me up, maybe 40 minutes later, and tell me we're all done. I literally felt nothing. No pain or discomfort, either during or after the procedure. I joked with the doctor, uhh did you even do my colonoscopy, or just allowed me to take a quick nap? I had no issues whatsoever. Thank you, Dr. Hearne!"

"I used to get my procedures done at Dr Hearne's 410 clinic. That was always such a great experience. This new office seems like hearding cattle. Everyone was very nice though. However, the anesthia was extremely painful. I grabbed my underarm and said THAT HURTS. The anesthisiologist said she would slow it down and Dr Hearne said that happens but very rare. Seems to me she pushed it too fast. I love Dr. Hearne!!!!! I have recommended many of my family and friends to him."

"This was the easiest colonoscopy I have ever had , starting from scheduling, I even had to move it a day because of my daughter who's going to drive me. The "prep" came in way in advance with instructions. This one is different from the past 3 that I had, the staff are all very accommodating and professional. Dr Hearne talked to me before lights out and after the procedure, everything was smooth as silk, see you on 10 years 😁😁😁"

"From the moment I stepped into Dr. Hearne’s office I felt a warm, inviting atmosphere from his front desk staff. Then the intake nurse was careful to listen to my concerns and background. I was then seated back in the reception room after. Next, Dr. Hearne himself greeted me and walked me into his office. He had already familiarized himself with my medical records and was very prepared, knowledgeable, reassuring and efficient to lay out the plan to address my health concerns. Everything and everyone was perfect. Efficient, welcoming and professional."

"Hadn’t seen Dr Hearne in quite a few years but needed to get advice and guidance on a couple of health issues I’d been having. He explained everything very well, told me not to be concerned about some bloodwork I’d recently gotten, and upped the dosage on a med he’d prescribed. Follow-up visit in 6 weeks to see how I’m doing. Very good experience - he made me feel better just by talking to me! And the increased dosage has helped."

"Dr Steven Hearne performed my colonoscopy. I had a phone consultation with him before it was scheduled, so he could get medical history and answer all my questions. The office mailed me my instructions and directions to the facility. The prep, of course, was not fun, but it was not bad either. I was taken back very soon after I got to the facility. There was not much waiting time. Everything went well. He gave me pictures and talked to me afterwards, so I had all my questions answered. I had no discomfort from the procedure. And I was on the way to a favorite restaurant with my husband not very long after having arrived. I would highly recommend Dr Steven Hearne."

"I had never seen Dr Hearne before, but when I was having problems with my stomach him and his office saw me right of way, which I appreciated. Once I saw Dr Hearne he gave me a thorough examination, and also ran labs. He put me at ease that I was fine and there was nothing he found abnormal with my stomach. Since I had just turned 50 he also recommended I do my Colonoscopy. I was really scared that something might be wrong, but after the procedure Dr. Hearne was right there when I woke up and reassured me that I was fine, and that I didn't have to see him for another 10 years. That was a relief. Even after my procedure he called me personally the next day to see how I was feeling and to check on me. Not many Dr's do that these days. I want to Thank Dr. Hearne and his staff for seeing me and for taking care of me."
