If Dr. Scott Heyl could give one piece of advice to a new professional in the medical field, it would be to read one article a day related to your area of expertise and take care of yourself. He tries to practice his own advice by spending time with his family and being on the golf course when he’s not in the clinic.
If you ask him why Heyl Family Practice is different than other primary care providers, he will tell you, “We’re unique because we’ve been around a long time... over 75 years. We still see patients that started with us in their youth even though they’ve moved to hospital or personal care. We truly care for patients at every level of their health... young and old.”
Dr. Scott Heyl and Heyl Family Practice providers are currently accepting new patients. The offices at West View and McCandless offer same day appointments and a wide range of hours Monday-Friday.
