What People Say About Dr. Darren Hess, MD
Reply
We had challenges. Had to repeat surgery several times. Nice enough unless your surgery outcome isn't good then he becomes not so nice and tends to blame patient. Make sure you have a hospitalist follow in the hospital. Many things the surgeon won't want to deal with.
