My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe any good doctor-patient relationship begins with listening and communication. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I have the time I need to forge close relationships with my patients in a calm, highly personalized manner and act as their advocate, helping them navigate the increasingly complex healthcare system.

You are unique, and as such, your medical goals and needs are also unique. Together, we can discuss, plan and coordinate a wellness journey designed specifically for you. I recognize the importance of patients being active participants in their medical decisions. By bringing you a personalized healthcare approach, similar to concierge medicine, we can work closely together to help you achieve the good health and peace of mind you deserve. I am a board-certified internal medicine physician with extensive experience treating chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep disorders with an emphasis on nutrition, fitness, preventive medicine and heart health.

My primary care practice serves patients in the central Palm Beach County area including Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, Green Acres, Atlantis, South Palm Beach, Manalapan, Hypoluxo, Palm Springs, Lake Clark Shores, Wellington and Boynton Beach. I am an attending physician at JFK Memorial Hospital, and I firmly believe it is in the best interest of my patients to be treated by the physician who knows them best when hospitalized – that’s me!

We respect Dr. Heron very much. We have the most confidence in him as our
Physician. When we call he always responds promptly. Even during a holiday.This is a great comfort to us as we get older and develop medical issues.
We are so pleased to have found him after several false try's with other doctors when we moved to Florida. He is a quality individual and a Red Sox fan!

I am an 80 year old resident of Wellington, FL. It was just 3 years ago this May that I fainted in my bathroom from a vasal-vegal problem. My head hit the tile floor and my wife called 911 to take me to the JFK Hospital. There, I was given several tests not showing any significant problems. I was released in 2/3 days. For the next 4 weeks, I experienced 3 hour headaches daily. Dr Heron advised… See more
