Love Dr. Heinrich!!!! she is AWESOME! she genuinely cares about her patients and it shows.


Always a pleasure to work with Dr. Heinrich and Westgate!!!!


Dr. Marcella is amazing! The best healthcare provider in town. She really care about her patients. Calling us after hours to check on the child.


Marcella is the best!!! Marcella always treats my daughter and me with respect. NCBH needs 1,000 more Marcellas!!


Dr. Heinrich is so patient and answers all of my questions. she makes sure you understand and agree with the plan of care. she even called the next day which was a Saturday to check on Eleanor and make sure she was okay. We recommend Dr Heinrich to everyone we know!


Dr heinrich is the best! i wish she did adult care! I know she will always be there for us and even calls late in the evening if needed. I love her!


Dr. Heinrich is really great. She took the time to talk with me about what my personal goals and plans were along with my health concerns. Every time I see her she is in such a great mood and definitely helps settle my general nerves about being at the doctors. She also has followed up with me about any test results and always does so in a timely manner. I have loved having her as my physician and hate that I have to transfer to a Family Medicine doctor since I am getting older!


I am so elated to have found Dr. Heinrich! I was concerned with a number of things that were not handled to my satisfaction by a previous provider and Dr. Heinrich completely alleviated all concerns. I love how she uses research to back her practices. My husband and I look forward to her being our son's pediatrician for years to come.




Dr. Heinrich is very thorough and friendly. It is also very evident she is up to date with medical knowledge.


fantastic physician! she's very kind to myself and Landon. I feel 100 percent confident with my son in her care. we're very blessed to have dr H.


*Dr. Heinrich is one of the best pediatricians I have come across since having children. Her care is outstanding.


Dr. Heinrich is an incredible doctor. She cares for the whole person and embodies the art and science of medicine. I fully trust her with the care of my daughter and highly recommend her


Speaks Spanish perfectly & is a good doctor -


Very confident in Dr Heinrich as she throrougly reviews circumstances every time we visit her. She takes her time and makes sure she hadn't missed anything before making diagnosis or recommendation for further testing.


Dr. Heinrich has been my doctor since I was an infant. She knows my medical history. She knows me as a person. She always gives her time in an unhurried manner, listens, and then explains any treatment that is needed. She is always friendly and informative. This was my last visit since I am now an adult. I wish that I could have her as my family doctor.


Dr Heinrich is the best!


love Dr Heinrich!


Dr Heinrich is hands down the best pediatrician! She takes the time to listen, give advice, is great interacting with my daughter, is so knowledgeable and willing to help me ensure my daughter has everything she needs medically.


I already recommended to others this place


Dr. Heinrich is the absolute best! Although she isn't my son's regular provider, she was very knowledgeable about his medical history and very thorough with explaining her plan for resolving the medical issue that we were there for. I was so happy to have had her see us on such short notice.


we love Dr. Heinrich


Dr. Heinrich has seen my daughter since birth (11.5 years), she is excellent in every way! The best pediatrician I could possibly have for my daughter! So blessed to have her for the care of my children.


Outstanding clinician who engages and relates to my daughter very well. An asset to the Wake Forest community!


Dr. Heinrich is a first rate pediatrician. I cannot say enough positive things about her care.


She goes above and beyond what is expected. She provides outstanding care.


*Dr. Heinrich has been Isabel's doctor for the last 14 years and she is excellent.
