Dr. Brian Heppard
Dr Brian Heppard has been a pivotal physician in the life of our family as he cared for my mother, Dody Sawyer, at the last year of her life. In so doing, he was caring for all of us. I would like to make an appointment with him, now that I am at a different stage in my own life and that of my husband.
