DrHess is the best. He has done surgery on my husband multiple times. Because of him, my husband is in near perfect health. Between paralysis and being in a wheelchair without surgeries, to doing anything he wants, I’d say he is the best.

Dr Bruce was very impersonal and detached. He went through the exam steps protocol and then sent me on my way providing no feedback whatsoever about my condition. Sent me to get a pain shot - dismissed!!

Review for Dr. Meurer

This Dr. took one look at my son and diagnosed him. Without doing any test! No Dr. should diagnose without first doing at the very least a blood test! He was wrong with his diagnosis.

I agree with the last 3 comments...she is extremely rude and dismissive and she even smells of cigarette smoke which I am extremely allergic to...I think a pulmonary specialist should know better. Very disappointing.
