Dr. Ness made me feel like he truly cared about what I wanted and asked specific questions to ensure he and I were on the same page. We discussed what would be best for me, and I knew he had my best interest in mind. Every time we met, he made me feel like I was his only patient and that I was a top priority. My results are absolutely wonderful and even better than what I wanted. I am so happy with my entire experience and will always look to him as my doctor for future procedures.
