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 Medical Center, 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!

Dear Dr. Heron,
We have been your patients for just over one year now and have found you available for us whenever we have a health problem. What a comfort to us.
Sincerely, Edward and Maureen W.

from Mary in FL March 12, 2018 for James C. Heron, MD

Last year when I came to Dr. Heron with terrible pains in my midriff area, he was very thorough in his questioning and examination of me. Dr. Heron made sure that every test was provided to help diagnose what was wrong. Eventually he prescribed pain medication that helped me. He returned my calls when I needed him. My problem is gone now. Thanks to Dr. Heron.

from Wilma in FL March 6, 2018 for James C. Heron, MD

Hard to believe since I met him that I waited nearly two years after relocating to south Florida and until some physical symptom was bothering me to call Dr. Heron whose phone number I had tucked away in a drawer all that time. He saw me immediately. We met again soon after for my annual wellness exam.

In all meetings and on the telephone about my medical records, I was impressed by… See more

What more needs to be said after He saved my life at least twice and most recently my wife's..

His attention, focus and direct action are unique in todays world with delays and uncertainty all about. He acts with purpose and sensitivy that I have rarely seen.

from Irvin in FL March 1, 2018 for James C. Heron, MD

On the way home from New York to Florida I developed pneumonia. I called dr heron and immediately he called in a prescription to my pharmacy. It was waiting for me when I reached home. This exemplifies what a caring dr he is.

from Marilyn in FL March 1, 2018 for James C. Heron, MD

It's just so nice to know that Dr. James Heron is there for us whenever we need him. If my husband wakes us not feeling well, he gets right in to see Dr. Heron that very same day. When I was sick and called him, (not wanting to go in to see him and spread my germs) he kept in touch to make sure that I am not getting worse. My relatives in Michigan wish they had a doctor like James… See more
