Life saving

Dr. Hess was my second opinion after feeling stuck and helpless with privious doctor. I was diagnosed with crps. My life looked miserable. Dr. Hess had so many more options available to try to treat my pain beside drugs and slow progress. He never never pushed any pain pills or increases I was not getting already when I went to him. I find the comments 2 in all about his character offensive to chronic pain patients and could not have been written by one of his true patients. If there was a space to be a true verified patient not self verified I w0ould do it.

One Star

He posted on my chart he had a meeting with me. I have never met him, nor talked to him. At this point completely question his ethics. His clinic said derogatory things about a family member. That family member had never been to his clinic not talked to him prior to the stated date they said the letter went out. We did not get that letter. We then requested it. We also requested the medical records area confirm that this family member had never been there. Medical records verified he hadn't. I think this is discrimination against the disabled. The internet shows how he has spent his time lecturing for drug companies. It also shows that in an article he was questioned about the money received.

Dr. Hess Rocks!!

I have only been a patient of Dr. Hess's for about 6 months but i can tell you this..he is the most compassionate, determined and hard working Doctor i have ever seen. Todd has taken such good care of me and listened to me. I mean really listened when many many other Drs would not. I always leave smiling and feeling safe. If ever im not allowed to be in the program i can tell you it will be something i did, not his doing. Dr. Hess works tirelessly trying to solve my unknown aggressor and keep me comfortable as possible while dealing with severe neuropathy and a deteriorating spine full of rapidly advancing arthritis, disc pertrusions, nerve compression. Going through all that i do, its an absolute pleasure to be treated so kindly by such a professional as himself. Thanks Doc! VIP
