Great experience - Dr. Hessan went above and beyond for my 7 year old son

We had a great experience with Dr. Hessan. He went above and beyond what no other doctor would do to help my son. No one else would listen to me about my son's eye discomfort being caused by his sinuses. Dr. Hessan was not sure either but decided to do further testing to ease our minds and to get to the bottom of the problem. The testing showed a complete blockage of his sinuses which was even a surprise to Dr. Hessan. I am grateful to him for going that extra step even if he was not 100%. His office staff was also wonderful. Quick response with any issues or questions that I had.
