I recently had an appointment set up with Dr. Hess related to a mild discomfort which had grown to a pain and was concerning to me. After examination Dr. Hess had me sent in for an ultrasound scheduled for 2 hours later that day to see whether I had cancer. I was to discuss the results with him after. Fortunately the results came back negative, but rather than speak to me about the results, he had his nurse call me to give me a phone number to a specialist I was to see next. I told her I wanted to speak with my doctor about the results before being pushed on to the next doctor, but no call was returned that day; I followed up the next two days and asked to speak with him but was told each time to leave a message (which would then not be returned). I felt silly threatening to lawyer up so I could get a 5 minute phone conversation to go over results of an exam I had taken to see if I had cancer and what the next steps would be for my health care.
Dr. Hess is the best Dr. I have ever had hands down. He has always calmed me so easy when I was worried about anything he has always nailed what was wrong with me made sure I got the right treatment and that it worked he has a sweet careing bedside manner and always ask if there is anything more he can do for me or help me with LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM!
